Skinny Cookie Dough Dip

Happy Monday everyone!

I’ve been on a diet for a little over a month and so far things are going great! I’m on track to reach my goal and I’ve been working out like crazy. I do however still have cravings for sweets; mostly chocolate. The hardest part about dieting has been Pinterest!!

All of those yummy recipes just call out to me. Well lucky for me I found one that I can eat and not feel super guilty about. I’ve discovered a blogger [love it when that happens], her name is Katie and her blog is Chocolate Covered Katie. I’m her new biggest fan!

Anyway I found this recipe for her Cookie Dough Dip and today I’m sharing it with you.

She shares a few variations on her blog, I’m sharing with you the way I made it.

Skinny Cookie Dough Dip


1 Can of Chickpeas [low sodium]
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 Unsweetned Vanilla Almond Milk
3 tbsp Chocolate Chips
2 tbsp Rolled Oats
1 tbsp Flax seeds
10 Almonds [raw]
3 tbsp brown sugar

You’ll need to drain and rinse your can of chickpeas. Set aside while you grind your Rolled Oats, Flax Seeds & Almonds. I used my baby bullet millet blade to make them into a powder.

I then combined all of the ingredients [everything but the chocolate chips] in my food processor.

I made sure to add the milk in slowly as the “dough” was forming.

After “dough” texture formed I added the chocolate chips and just stirred to mix those in.

I divided the dough into 1/2 cup tupperware containers; put one in the fridge and the rest in the freezer. This way when I get a snack attack I can have some cookie dough!!!

I personally just eat this with a spoon, but you can dip graham crackers, fruit or whatever else your heart desires!

Note about the taste… this is basically a dessert hummus so if you are not a fan of hummus I wouldn’t recommend eating this. I personally have been on a diet long enough that this snack does the trick for my horrible sweet tooth.

Split Roasted Chicken

Split Roasted ChickenThis weekend was overcast and gloomy, not my favorite weather, then I remembered I had a whole chicken in my freezer. I decided we’d have a comforting and warm dinner…. Split Roasted Chicken.

Why the “split”? Well honestly because it roasts faster! I’m all for a faster cook time and still all the yummy goodness of roasted chicken. I made this with lemons and fresh herbs, we just love this combo when we roast a chicken…

It sounds much harder than it is; here’s what you’ll need.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes


Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes |

These are my Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes and they are toddler approved! Easy to make & healthy… Good stuff for my growing toddlers.

The kids eat a lot of pancakes [always dry] in our house because they are hand held and I can make a few days worth at once; making breakfast time easier.

My kids don’t get butter or syrup for their pancakes yet so a dry pancake has to taste good. I always know if they don’t like them… because they end up on the floor. These passed with flying colors!
