Oatmeal Cookie Dough Dip

After looking at pageviews and pins, one thing has been made very clear to me: You guys loved the brownie batter dip I made a few months ago. And seriously, I don’t blame you! It’s SO good! So lately I have been trying to think about what new cookie dip I could make next…oatmeal cookie dough dip!

As a chocoholic, brownie batter dip will always have my heart, but I have to say this oatmeal cookie dip is pretty amazing. And as always, it’s made with beans! Shhhh, don’t tell your friends! The oats in this dip give it a nice chewy texture just like an actual oatmeal cookie. Since I wanted to keep this healthy, I ate mine with cut up strawberries and bananas (omg, the bananas were so good with it!), but you could also eat it with graham crackers, animal crackers, or vanilla wafers. But, seriously, it was so good, I was just eating it with a spoon last night! If the beans totally freak you out, swap them out for fat-free/reduced fat cream cheese!

Oatmeal Cookie Dough Dip

Adapted from brownie batter dip

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

– 1 can white beans, drained and rinsed (I used northern beans)

– 2/3 cup brown sugar*

– pinch of salt

– 2 tsp. vanilla extract

– 1 tsp. cinnamon

– 1/2 cup rolled or quick oats

– 1/4 cup nut butter

– 2-3 tbs. skim or soy milk

– 1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Directions:

1. Combine all ingredients (except raisins) in a food processor or blender. Process until the mixture is smooth. Stir in the raisins. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes:
– If you want to make this sugar-free, you can swap out the sugar for Splenda or Stevia (granular or drops). You can also sweeten this using honey or agave. Whatever suits your diet/tastes best!

  1. This sounds absolutely incredible! Even more so than the regular cookie dough dip floating around out there. I love anything with oats and cinnamon! Can’t wait to try this out!

  2. I love that you used white beans in the dip. This sounds fabulous! Hugs, Terra

  3. Since it contains oatmeal, I am allowed to dip enormous chocolate cookies into it right? Its too healthy otherwise but just as delicious :D

  4. Yum! The thought of bananas and oatmeal cookie dough sounds so good. You can tell it is full of cinnamon from your photos. I love having recipes that sneak in the beans.

  5. Stephanie I love that you are fearless in the kitchen. You added white beans and cinnamon oatmeal together… that’s amazing. :) I bet it tasted wonderful just as you made it. I would have eaten it with a spoon too. :) Have a great week! ~ Ramona

  6. While I do like to snack on granola, I can always use a little bit more variety when it comes to getting some whole grains in the diet. This looks like a perfect alternative! Not only did you include some grains but also some other healthful ingredients and I am always game for something cinnamony! Thanks Steph!

  7. Oh, my…I love cookie dough dip! And you’ve made a healthier version and with my favorite cookie!!!! YUM!

  17. I love this! Oatmeal cookie dough is one of my favorites to sneak and this dip is the perfect healthier alternative :) With bananas?! Serious perfection.

  18. What beans? What a great idea! I’ve heard of it in baked goods, but I’ve never used it.

  19. Ok, Stephanie, you’ve seriously got me in a bind. I’m planning a going away party/play date in a few weeks and I was set to make one of your “dough dips” for it. I was going back and forth between the brownie and the choc. chip cookie. I thought I had finally decided on brownie, but now I don’t know! You know, it’s not good to give an indecisive person more choices! :) This sounds amazing! Maybe I should just make all three :)

  20. Such an interesting recipe! Obviously I was missing out on the cookie dough dip. I don’t think I’ve ever had any type of cookie dough dip before! And this has beans in it? Even more mysterious!!! This must be really delicious according to what you explain… so curious to try it out!

  21. wow,another great recipe from you,oatmeal and white bean ? interesting,sound Yummy with a slice of fruits.

  22. I am in love with this, I gave up cookie dough for Lent. I may have to try this after Easter. Thanks for sharing with us.

  23. Oatmeal cookie dough is my favorite cookie dough ever. I’d gladly eat the entire thing and just pretend I didn’t see the words beans in the ingredient list. haha :) Love this!

  24. Yum! You sure know how to churn out delicious dessert-themed dips! I like that it isn’t loaded with cream cheese or other fattening ingredients. It’s indulgent without being over the top.

  25. Stephanie….who would know there are beans in here….though I love white beans. But I really love the thought of dipping anything into ‘cookie batter’….especially oatmeal. Actually, I don’t really need anything to dip….I’ll just use my finger! : )

  26. I LOVE THIS!! I have baked chocolate chip cookies with beans, but never tried them in a dip. This looks like the perfect healthy treat, and probably a great way to trick kids into eating something somewhat healthy! :-)

  27. Never seen cookie dough dip, but what a great idea!
