Perfect Pairs

 

First off, blogging and wine go together almost as well as peanut butter and chocolate.

And this amazing dip I’m going to show you I’m sure will go with just about anything. Smile

I clearly have problems when I find a recipe or food I like. I dream about it, think of different things I can do with it and want it every day. This is one of those recipes. I found a version of it over at Chocolate Covered Katie. She has the most amazing dessert recipes.

It’s easy. It’s delicious. It’s healthy. It’s huge (just how I like it).

You will LOVE it!

I adapted the recipe and cut some things in half because, well, I like to be able to eat the whole darn thing in one sitting. I don’t do well saving leftovers. I’m more of a “eat it to get it out the house” kind of girl.

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip

(for one STUFT mama or a few normal ones)

1/2 can garbanzo beans drained (125 g)

pinch of salt

pinch of baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons PB2

1 tablespoon peanut butter (I used Naturally More)

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1/4 cup Splenda granulated

1 teaspoon ground flax

1/4 cup nondairy milk alternative (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)

Mix all ingredients together in food processor and blend until smooth.

You can keep it just as is or mix in chocolate chips, shaved chocolate, etc. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes (optional).

This huge serving is approximately 430 calories (and so worth every one).

You can also substitute 2 tablespoons of a different kind of nut butter instead of the PB2 and peanut butter. I just like to mix it up (and I’m addicted to PB2).

O….. M…….G…… Becky, look at her butt dip

My first try yesterday had a serving of semi-sweet chocolate chips in it.

One serving of chocolate chips is a JOKE. Ha! I laugh at ONE serving.

I ate it with some Flatout cinnamon crisps

and a few other goodies (since I burned half of my cinnamon crisps). Good excuse, huh?

What the?

I did NOT do that.

Smile

Today I shaved a little Power Crunch Choklat bar into the mix (I ordered these amazing bars from All Star Health).

And believe it or not, I did NOT burn my cinnamon crisps. I used the Trader Joe’s whole wheat Lavash bread and they turned out AWESOME. There were A LOT for them for 240 calories.

I don’t even know what to say.

It was THAT good.

I guess I’ll just keep drinking my wine.

I will tell you that when I went to the store today I bought 3 more cans of garbanzo beans (when all we “needed” was some more Huggies Overnights).

Oops. We’re supposed to be “staying in”.

Oh well. I can make an exception for this.

Have a wonderful night!

I’m off to see if my roasted zucchini shreds were successful.

Do you ever get stuck on one food that you crave everyday?

    Yum, I have to try recipe out. It sounds like a dessert hummus.

    I love your blog! Nancy Fredette told me about it and I’ve been addicted ever since day one. Thank you for all of these healthy meal alternatives. I have been slowly converting my pantry over (PB2, Kale, Flatouts, Spinach Smoothies, etc) and my whole family is benefiting already. My only wish is that I was closer so I could join your strollerwise class. Thank you for sharing your days and ideas with us!

      Carmel- Thansk so much for reading. You are too kind. It’s fun to convert the pantry, isn’t it? :) I wish you lived closer too! It’s always nice to have more stroller mamas! :)

    Holy goodness!!!! That dip does sound amazing. And all your dippers look exactly like ones I would choose too. And the wine. I wish we lived closer. I would help you clear that food out of the house too. :)

    O….. M…….G…… Becky, look at her butt dip <— I can hear those words in my brain, love it. Flashback.

    And just curious why you put baking soda in the dip? Was it for flavor or for texture or what? Curious!

    Do you need flax seeds? Can I replace them with chia?

    I love this blog! I love peanut butter and have been trying to figure out a way to “eat more” of it without actually eating a lot of peanut butter. Have you tried pureeing a winter squash like kabocha or buttercup squash and adding pb2 to that? I personally think it is delicious and tastes like peanut butter. It especially tastes amazing if you add a little cocoa powder or chocolate protein powder. I just wanted to share my “find.” Thank you so much for being such an inspiration!
