Healthy Cookie Dough Dip

Chiquita loves helping me in the kitchen!  Blender recipes are the best, she can add the ingredients and press the buttons.  We found a Healthy Cookie Dough Dip recipe.  If you've read my other recipe posts I obviously love these bean dessert recipes, it's a great way to get Chiquita to eat more protein.

The first time I made this the results were un-photograph-able.  I decided to add cocoa powder, which was delicious but makes the dip look like refried beans (that's if you're being nice, my husband suggested something much less edible).

I made it again without the cocoa, but of course I changed the recipe considerably.  I wanted to use my blender because it gets the beans blended so much better than my Ninja food processor, so I had to add a lot more liquid.  Here's my version:

1 can pinto beans (just because I had them on hand)
1 cup soy milk
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar (the original recipe wasn't nearly sweet enough)
3/4 cups oat flour (I ground the oats in my baby food mill)
3/4 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

It is so good, but word to the wise - don't eat it all!  Your tummy will not thank you.  I served it with apple slices and animal crackers.  Chiquita gave it her stamp of approval by asking for more!


  1. amazing. would this work without the wheat flour? my niece is gluten free and we could make this together. Please come over and share this on our #kidsinthekitchen linky this week

    1. I will definitely link up. your link up actually really inspired Mr to let Chiquita help more in the kitchen.

  2. Absolutely! the original recipe didn't have the wheat flour. I added it since I wanted to use the blender so needed more milk. you can either reduce the milk or increase the oat flour.
