As part of our daily grind here at HuffPost Taste, we look at a great many food blogs and review even more recipes. Usually, we come across recipes that make us hungry, and as a result, we eat an alarming amount of snacks throughout the day.
But sometimes we stumble upon recipes at which we snub our noses. And then, there are recipes like this healthy cookie dough dip recipe which very nearly horrified us. We had never heard of cookie dough dip before, though honestly it's not a bad idea. And, there are beans in it!! We were shocked. And once we got over that, we knew we had to try it.
We needed to know: can a recipe that includes sugar, chocolate AND bean puree actually turn into something we want to eat? So, we made it, and the editors here at Taste gave it a try. Here's what they thought:
- "This tasted surprisingly good. Sure, it's no cookie dough, but it definitely satisfied my sweet tooth and I had the urge to take another bite. That's the sign of a pretty successful dessert in my mind."
After further research, we found that healthy cookie dough dips seem to be a thing. We found a handful of recipes that sneak healthy ingredients in with sweet ones to make a dessert-y type of dish. You can make it with potatoes, with chickpeas or with white beans (like we did).
