We know what you’re thinking: a) you love cookie dough, and you always lick the spoon, but b) that doesn’t mean you care to eat a whole bowl of it! But wait, wait! Before you dismiss this post, know this: things are not as they appear. This cookie dough dip has a secret. Care to know what it is?

It’s made with chickpeas!

Katie from the blog Chocolate-Covered Katie brought this dip to a party, and as she writes, didn’t tell anyone what was in it or that it was fairly healthy. Needless to say, it caused a mini riot, and when she finally admitted it was made with chickpeas, no one believed her!

The dip is actually quite high in protein, gluten-free, and she offers guidelines for making it completely sugar-free, too. Vanilla extract, nut butter, oats, and chocolate chips give it that slightly sweet cookie dough taste, perfect for serving with graham crackers or fruit.

What do you think? Are you on board with the idea, or is it a bit too strange for you to swallow?
