I apologize for my failure to post last week. My nannying job took me on the road and I had to watch 3 hyped-up ten-year old boys at an indoor water park. And I swear, I think I was the biggest kid of all. I kept asking them if they wanted to go on rides. Unfortunately none of them wanted to. Kids today with their technology
Anyways, the trip would have been even more enjoyable if it had not fallen on my finals studying weekend, forcing me to stay up many nights. Ah college…
But, I’m off for a few weeks before summer courses begin! So, all is right in the world.
And as I celebratory treat, I got edible, raw cookie dough to share!
This was actually an accidental recipe. I had a few minutes to spare before class one morning and there was some almond butter and leftover sweet potato so… that was my breakfast. And with the color and consistency, I of course immediately thought of cookie dough. It’s kinda sad, but I spent my whole class thinking how to make this into a cookie dough dip. And when I got home, I went directly to the kitchen.
Needless to say, I had a lot of sweet potatoes that day. But hey, someone has to be the taste-tester 🙂
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
6 dates, soaked in water 1-2 hours beforehand
1 cup cooked sweet potato, mashed
1/4 cup nut butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Place dates in a food processor and pulse a few times, breaking then dates up. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the chocolate chips) until smooth. Mix in the chocolate chips and serve!
