Monster Cookie Dough Dip

Monster Cookie Dough Dip

Lookie what I did! ….Monster Cookie Dough Dip!

I was scanning through Pinterest about a week ago and saw a recipe for Monster Cookie Dough Dip. “Mmmmmm” was the only thought that crossed my mind. I had to go check it out.…. Then I did.

It wasn’t exactly shall we say ‘healthy’…. at all.  Bummer.  Not that the recipe is bad, I’m sure it is out of this world delicioius but I just need to be filling my body with the best possible nutrients right now (and always.)  I was pretty bummed to see that it wan’t something I could swing- even as an indulgence.  This is actually my caption for the pin

I’m so NOT making this– but I do need to use it as inspiration to make something delicious and healthy. Game on!”

So, took it upon myself to create something delicious and healthy. Much to my surprise, I succeeded! SCORE! I love it when that happens!

Monster Cookie Dough Dip

  • 1 can chick peas (drained & rinsed well)
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 c. unpacked brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. dark molasses
  • 2-3 Tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. peanut butter extract
  • 1/4 c. quick cooking oats
  • 1/4 c. rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 c. rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp. mini chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp. mini m&m’s

DIRECTIONS: First, process the chick peas. Then, add all of the above ingredients into food processor, except for the last three.   Then mix in the last three  ingredients; rolled oats, chocolate chips, and m&m’s. Do not process! The items need to be whole to make them seem almost identical to a monster cookie dough! Let set for at least a few hours. The rolled oats need time to soak up the extra moisture so that it becomes CookieDough’ish in true form. Also, add the mini M&M’s right before serving- they will ‘bleed’ into the cookie dough. :) ENJOY!

Monster Cookie Dough Dip

Monster Cookie Dough DIp = AMAZING!

This was a surprise success. I wasn’t expecting it to be that great but once I dipped my spoon in- I was hooked! ….I had this thing with eating monster cookie dough when I was younger (and heavier/not as healthy). You could call my sister- she would tell you that I’m an expert at monster cookie dough eating! ….This new recipe is a serious contender to what I used to eat- you know the sugar laden, full of not 100% nutritious ingredients. Well, rest assured you can feel good about eating this and it tastes really stinking good! I’m glad I pinned their recipe and made something of my own. Now, go pin this because it is healthy + delicious!  :) 

Question: Are you a monster cookie fan?!?!   –OR–  What were you an expert at when you were younger?
