Want to be the hit of any party? Also want to trick your friends or kids into being delighted over an indulgent dessert that is actually secretly healthy? Just bring this Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Dip. They’ll never know what they’re missing. Recipe adapted from www.chocolatecoveredkatie.com . If you are not a raisin fan, you can sub another dried fruit or chocolate chips.
The ULTIMATE food swap is happening with this blondie recipe. Instead of the traditional flour, butter, sugar combo to get these tasty treats made, this recipe uses chickpeas as its secret ingredient. Chickpeas are high in fiber, iron, and helps detoxify your body. Also, instead of refined sugar it is sweetened with pure maple syrup, and uses oats instead of flour. These melt in your mouth and go quick. Like real quick. You may want to go ahead and just double the recipe now. Seriously though, these are legit. Tiny bites of goodness! These are inspired by the Chocolate Covered Katie Blog.
We LOVE the mighty chickpea around these parts. The chickpea has evolved beyond building an awesome hummus and now is found for a base for our cookie dough dip and a great snack here with these roasted chickpeas. Why are these little things so awesome? They are packed with fiber, protein, iron, help boost immunity and even promote better sleep. And they taste soooooo good!
Who says you can't have dessert for breakfast? Well, 'they' could be right if it's a traditional dessert, but they would be WRONG if they ever called you out for having these here cookies for some brekkie! Jam packed with nutrients from oats, chickpeas, and naturally sweetened with dates, these breakfast cookies are high in protein and fiber, and even have a semi-secret ingredient of pumpkin in 'em. Just trust us, make these and be the hero of the day!
The good thing about chickpeas, is you can almost put them anywhere as a protein swap! And the result is usually FABULOUS! This recipe right here is no exception. All the flavor of a tuna salad, none of the mercury or tuna smell in the office 🙂 You can make a sandwich out of this with sprouted grain bread or a lettuce wrap, or eat it straight up with a spoon, it's just that good.
