Monster Cookie Dough Dip:
You’ve seen those recipes for Monster Cookies, right? Basically they are a peanut butter oatmeal cookie loaded with chocolate chips and M&M’s or other candies.
Well, imagine a bowl full of the cookie dough. Sure, this dip is packed with chocolate and peanut buttery goodness, but it’s actually made with a secret ingredient and doesn’t have any flour. What the what?!?! Yup… trust me on this one!
It would also make a super-fun after school snack with some fruit or graham crackers. Heck, it’s chickpeas – I sent it to camp with my little guy for lunch on some apple slices. Pay no attention to the M&M’s in my kid’s lunchbox 🙂
- One 15 oz. can chickpeas rinsed, drained, and dried on a paper towel
- 1/4 c half a stick unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 c peanut butter
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 2 t vanilla extract
- 1/4 t salt
- 1/2 c semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 c old fashioned oats
- Two single serving 1.69 oz. bags or about 1/2 c M&M's
- Pretzels cinnamon sugar or chocolate tortilla chips, graham crackers, fruit, etc. for serving
Place the chickpeas, butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt into a food processor, and process until smooth. You may need to scrape with a spatula or break up clumps of brown sugar once or twice in order to get it completely smooth.
Scoop the mixture into a bowl, add the oats and chocolate chips, and mix in completely.
Add the M&M's and stir briefly to combine (see Note).
Serve with pretzels, cinnamon sugar or chocolate tortilla chips, graham crackers, fruit, etc. for dipping or spreading.
Once you've added the M&M's, be careful not to overstir, or the colors will run and get all smeary. If you want to have those bright pops of color, reserve a few M&M's and press them into the top of the dip just before serving.
Dip can be stored for several days in the fridge, but the oats will soften a bit and the dip will firm up, so you may want to serve with a knife for spreading.
