Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip -- Made with Garbanzo Beans (And It's Good, Not Just Good for You)

Chow Bella shared this recipe on Pinterest a long time ago, before Pin Up Girl, on a board called "Dare you to try this."

At first glance, I couldn't understand the dare. What's so daring about cookie dough dip? But then I looked at the recipe...

What makes this rebellious is that this is a healthy cookie dough dip. It's so healthy that you could potentially eat the whole recipe and not feel like a complete loser. Indeed, you could even let your 5-year-old eat a bowlful and be all right with it. Which is why I'm all about it.
