Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough And A Spoon

I've been working on a post on and off for a while but life seems to get in the way.  My boys, working out, and keeping up with everything is hard these days and I found it cruel to not at least post this recipe I just made 15 minutes ago.  I was in the grocery store yesterday getting the ingredients to make this new recipe (along with a few other new recipes I hope to post about soon) and it was an event to say the least.  It was a challenge with my two and half year old and my six year old in the grocery store.  My two year old didn't want to sit in the grocery cart so I thought I could keep him busy by having him help me.  It proved to be too much to handle with my six year old wanting to push the cart while the two year old was off and running through the store laughing and smiling while he would grab things off the shelf and put them in the cart.  I was trying to keep my patience and it was very hard to say the least.  The store was crowded and people were wispering and staring at me and the kids.  Good times!!!

Since I started this blog my goal has been to have posts worth your time to read and to use it as a way to connect with others on the topic of health, weight loss, and eating well. We all have really busy lives and there's nothing more disapointing than taking that time and being let down.  
Now that I have that off my chest I need to share something with you.

Have you ever wanted to dive into a bowl of cookie dough?

Me personally? no because of the raw eggs in cookie dough but I came across this blog with an AMAZING RECIPE.  What makes this recipe so amazing?  My husband and boys who love cookie dough ate this up in a flash.  I also had my father in law give it a try and he couldn't believe what the ingredients were.  When it comes to WW points plus it's 1pt per TB and worth every point :-)  Since when does someone get a chance to eat a 1/2 cup of cookie dough that's 6 WW points plus and healthy.

This is my version that I made up from Chocolate Covered Katie's Blog

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough


  • 1 1/2 cups chickpeas (1 can, drained) (250g)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1 TB plus 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsalted unsweetened peanut butter 
  • 1/4 cup Almond Milk plain unflavored
  • 1T brown sugar, and 6 drops of liquid stevia extract 
  • 1/3 cup Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips
  •  3 T oats (or flaxmeal) (I used oats)
Add all ingredients (except for chocolate chips) to food processor, and blend until very smooth. Then mix in the chocolate chips and pulse a few times to break up the chips into smaller pieces.
I would normally post a picture and I will next time I make this.  It was gone before I could take a photo :-)
Enjoy!
