Hi guys, how’s your week going so far? Things are moving right along, here. I had somewhat of a busy weekend last weekend, so this week looks like some catch up + trying to get ahead. Is it possible to do both?

I’m happy to share this lovely snack recipe with you today. Add it to my repertoire of sweet potato recipes (always need more of those). This one is great for us snackers.

Raise your hand if you’re a snacker

My hand is raised. Ever since I’ve seen the chickpea cookie dough around the web, I’ve been a fan. Not to say it replaces actual cookie dough (in no way, shape or form), but hey, it’s still tasty enough. Plus, actual cookie dough is a no no for pregnant women with those raw eggs, so I’ve had to find substitutes for my cookie dough snacking. There’s a newer COOKIE DOUGH STORE in Charlotte that we went to once. And they do cookie dough and ice cream mixes – fabulous!

But, when the craving strikes, I need something instantaneous. You know how it is (right?).

And now, we have a fun twist you can make in your own kitchen. It’s not overly sweet potato flavor, though I’m sure if you want that, you could double the amount of sweet potatoes. I think it produces a nice balanced flavor. I recommend 3-4 tablespoons of peanut butter, depending on your preference. Do more if you like it creamier.

Most importantly, it couldn’t be easier to make. Just place all ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor. No baking, no prep time, nothing. If it’s dry at first, you can add some almond milk (by the tablespoon). I didn’t have to.

Use this Sweet Potato Cookie Dough Dip as a toast topper, frosting, eat it straight from the jar, or put it in your oatmeal or yogurt. The possibilities are endless!

Also, I will say that personally, I find that this dip gets better after a day or two in the fridge. It becomes a little more “cookie dough” like in texture and consistency.

  1. Ah yeahhhhh. My three favorite things – sweet potato, chickpeas and chocolate – strikes again. Love the addition! I need good little friend gathering to serve this at.

  2. I think Sweet Potatoes are one of the more under-rated foods there is. Not only are they tastier than other
    forms of starch, it is much healthier for you. Please post more ideas!

  3. Definitely going to try, sounds wonderful! Broke out the other loaf of bread with the blueberries I made from your previous recipe, and am really enjoying it! It satisfies my sweet tooth without actually being very sweet.

      1. Slowly, and what I need now is patience! I’m so used to being active. That’s the worst part of all this, however I know it will get better with time. Thanks for asking.
