Better than peanut butter, chocolate spread, shop bought cookie dough…actually I don’t think you can buy raw cookie dough in the UK? If you can, it’s definitely better than this. I know this because its flies through the ‘can you eat it straight from the jar’ test.
Whatever, this is a continuation of my sweet chick pea lovin’. I’ve been making little chick pea chocolate cookie bites and I usually end up eating half the ‘raw’ dough before I’ve made them……and then it dawned on me. I couldn’t believe how blind i’ve been – why the hell did I not make this guilt free cookie dough butter sooner?
I hate words like ‘guilt free’ because I don’t think we should let guilt interfere with our enjoyment of food but let’s face it, it does all too often. So calling these ‘guilt free’ is just a way of conveying that this cookie dough butter is unprocessed, low in sugar, protein rich, has zero bad fats but more a big bowl of healthy. It’s hard not to eat the whole jar, I did urge Russ to take half to work to get it out of my reach….he forgot and I finished it….all of it. So delicious, it’s equally dangerous to prepare especially when spooning it into the jar, near impossible to do this without eating some. I’m just trying to tell you how good this is….and good for us, thank the lord it’s good for us. So happy that food like this is healthy cos it sure as hell don’t taste like it.
Add a little more or less milk for your desired consistency, I like mine quite thick but a little looser works well poured over ice cream – whatever floats your boat really.
Butter, a dip, dolloped in your morning oats, on cereal or yep…..straight up out of the jar, whatever.
