STUFT in the Kitchen Video- Chia Cookie Dough Dip

 

What better way to start out the week than with another installment of STUFT in the Kitchen, right? I had this whole other post planned, but when I woke up this morning I thought this video (and this recipe) needed a post all on it’s own. You can thank me later.

Smile

I’ve written about our love for this healthy cookie dough dip before. We stepped it up a notch with the addition of some chia (our latest obsession). Our debut cooking video was this one for the chia microwave muffins (which are fabulous and are on the menu for breakfast this morning).

This one is for something that just might top that. Yep. This healthy peanut butter dip is awesome. I regularly wake up craving it. Some people are a little turned off by the fact that it’s a sweet dip made with garbanzo beans, but I dare you to try it. I also dare you to watch us make a little mess in our kitchen.

Video notes:

I say this in the video, but  when I am preparing food for others the boys are not as hands on.

Check out Joaquin when I turn around, he goes straight for the knife.

It’s a good thing I have a lot of measuring spoons as I have to replace them throughout the process. You’ll see why.

Yeah, this is about as good and cleaned up as it gets over here. I know my hair isn’t done, but I did get the boys all spiffed up and managed to get on a little make-up (for church, not the video).

 

Enjoy.

 

 

Here’s the recipe because I know you’re going to want to try this right away.

Chia Cookie Dough Dip

Ingredients:

1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

1/4 cup PB2 or other nut butter (other variations and adjustments in notes below)

1/4 cup granulated sugar or sugar substitute

1-2 tablespoons brown sugar (I use 1)

1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon of baking soda (I just use a pinch)

1/8 teaspoon of salt (I just use a pinch)

1 tablespoon of chia or 1 serving chia gel (preparation instructions below)

2-4 tablespoons milk or nondairy milk of choice

 

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in food processor. Serve with cinnamon crisps, apple slices, etc. Or you can eat it with a spoon (like the boys do in the video). You can even use it as a healthy frosting.

 

Notes: If subbing in a different nut butter or regular peanut butter, decrease amount of milk. Add one tablespoon at a time until you get the desired consistency.

 

Chia gel- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water. I mix them and let them sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. You can add this to oatmeal, yogurt, berries, etc..

Here’s a look at the ingredients (and Joaquin) minus the milk.

Here are some pictures of the process.

(I’m getting hungry just looking at these.)

Here’s how we do it up over here.

The boys eat it devour it with a spoon.

It’s one of the few things that will get them to sit at the table these days. Hey, do you notice anything weird about these pictures?

Annoyed

I like to eat mine with apple slices and cinnamon crisps made with a Flatout wrap.

Sometimes (like yesterday) I get a little crazy and add a scoop of peanut butter (or Naturally More) on the top.

Oh friends, I hope you jump on the chia train with us.

Come on over and I’ll make you some dip to celebrate!

Now this is how to kick off the New Year of the right foot, not like this.

Have a wonderful day!

Question for you: What do you think about the STUFT in the Kitchen videos? They’re fun to do, but I might need a better camera if we’re going to keep them coming.

    Danggg that looks and sounds so good! Chickpeas in cookie dough dip, now that is awesome. Can you believe I still haven’t tried chia?! I’m behind on the #livewellnow times.

      Oh Caitlin- you’ve gotta try the chia. It’s so fun to play with. :) I’m always behind on the #livewellnow times though. Always just trying to catch up. ha!

    Wow – a healthy cookie dough spread with garbanzo beans & chia seeds – awesome! I think you have outdone yourself on this one, I need to try it! I love the videos, but can’t always watch them when I’m at work. =)

    Mmm, I love Naturally More PB so much. The crunchy flax in there is my favorite part. Your kiddos are the cutest!

      Janetha- Oh my goodness- I know. It’s the best peanut butter around. I make special trips to Walmart to get it because that’s the only place I can find it around here.

    I love the videos your doing! they actually make things look easier than they sound when written down…..I hope you do this blog for years to come because I’m going to love watching those two growing up and cooking like you do! I wish I was their grandma……..I’m also reminded on how you can hide healthy foods inside good tasting ones! thanks Kristen

      STUFT Mama says:

      Shauna- yes try it! I bet your kiddos would love it. Joaquin actually threw a fit the other day because i wouldn’t make him soem for dinner (he already had it for lunch). :) Hope your New Year is off to a great start!

    I’ve tried the “dessert” hummus before and couldn’t get into it… but I’d be willing to try it again since a) you made it and b) I trust you. ;)

  7. 7

    looks absolutely delicious! couple questions: have you figured out the nutritional stats for this? (according to your preparation) and also, do you order your PB2 online?

    • 7.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      PB2- yes I order it online. The company link is on my sidebar. Nutritional stats- my quick calculations this late at night for the WHOLE dip recipe is around 730 (depending on if you use 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar, what kind of milk, etc.)

    Love the video! You know i’m making this, right?! I love it when kids find foods that I love fun and delicious. I think it’s funny when they have more of an open mind that adults do. It’s all a frame of reference for sure. The dip looks and sounds delicious! I’m sold!

      STUFT Mama says:

      Sarena- this dip has your name all over it! I’ve been making your “frosting” with a mashed banana lately too. It’s my dessert. Yes, totally funny when kids have more of an open mind than adults. :)

    they are great kitchen helpers (or… they will be soon!) :D so dang cute, anyway – I loved this video.

    I love this kind of thing, I will be making it this afternoon!

      STUFT Mama says:

      Kris- yes, it’s seems like your type of thing. :) I wish they were good kitchen helpers. They’re a little too “helpful” right now. Ugh. I need to find some plantains to make your breakfast scramble. I’ve been dreaming about it since I saw it on your blog. :) I pinned it. :) he he!

  11. 11

    How hilarious. I’m putting up a post tomorrow in which I link to a different version of this dip you’ve posted…fyi ;) I love this stuff!

      STUFT Mama says:

      Oh yay Sarah!!! And your tweets the past two days have made my day! Can’t wait to see what flat Kitty’s been up to. :) I’ll check out a certain someone’s hair for you tomorrow. :)

  12. 12

    Oh man… I totally want to bake this up a la my chickpea cookies… I bet the flax would make for a neat texture when baked!! :)

    Just wondering if this was a single serving or multiple?

Love the idea of a cookie dough dip that is HEALTHY, hello! I’m not being a stalker but seriously looking through all of your recipes. Thank you!
