But mainly: Cookie Dough Dip! Playful cookie dough dip, of course!
Cookie Dough is definitelly a fun flavor, as well as cake batter. I know it’s a typical (ice cream) flavor in the US. Well – can you imagine a country without cookie dough ice cream? You can, as long as there’s cake batter ice cream? Well, … there isn’t cake batter ice cream either…
It was not an easy childhood. The only cookie dough flavored things was… cookie dough. And as long as your parents are watching, you’re not allowed to eat (too much) cookie dough…
Do I have to tell you that I love anything cookie dough? I think there should be a cookie dough version of every dessert. Guess that’s a big project!
I know there were many variations of cookie dough dips posted all over the blogoshphere lately. (Did I really just write that word? It’s come to that…). My version is inspired by CCK’s chickpea based cookie dough dip.
I wanted to put my own playful twist on it though! My version contains yogurt, which makes it a little “fluffy” and lighter than the original version. It’s gives this dip it’s wonderful creamy consistency!
Playful Cookie Dough Dip
- 1 can chickpeas
- 1/2 cup soy yogurt (or any other plant based yogurt)
- 3 tbsp rolled oats or oat flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract or powdered vanilla
- 6 dates
- Sweetener to taste: more dates, agave syrup, stevia…
- optional: chocolate chips
Drain and wash the chickpeas. Put all the ingredients (except chocolate chips) in your food processor or blender (you might need a tamper) and mix. One minute later, the ingredients magically turned into a delicious cookie dough dip…
For a richer dip: Add any kind of nut butter! Cashew is great if you want that vanilla flavor, for a peanut butter cookie dough dip add peanut butter! (about 1/4 cup)
Snicker doodle Dip: Add cinnamon
Brownie Batter Dip: Add cocoa
Cake Batter Dip: Add some butter extract
Actually, this is such a basic recipe, you can add anything that tastes good! Don’t add fries though. Nor tomatoes. Okay, you see where this is going…
