This delicious Snickerdoodle Dip tastes just like the holiday cinnamon sugar cookie but it’s healthier! The surprise ingredient is chickpeas but don’t let that scare you away – no one will know (unless you tell them)!

Snickerdoodles are some of my favorite cookies for Christmas. They are deliciously covered in cinnamon sugar and make the whole house smell like the holidays. When I was telling a few people about my dip idea, they didn’t actually know what a snickerdoodle cookie was! I was so surprised! But even if you haven’t tried the cookie before, I think you’ll like my Snickerdoodle Dip version with all of its cinnamon goodness.

While I love me some Christmas cookies (and will have a few too many in the next month) I have been trying to think of a healthy holiday recipe to share so you can have  a yummy treat without the guilt. I’ve seen chocolate chip cookie dip made with beans on a number of blogs before and though why not try to play around with a bean dip version of my beloved snickerdoodle cookies?

Let me tell you, no one trying this Snickerdoodle Dip will think it was made with beans. It still has that sweet cinnamon-y goodness that you’d get from a cookie but with added protein! You can dunk other cookies or apple slices into this dip but I’ll be honest with you, I usually dig right in with a spoon.

And what could be more perfect for Christmas movie watching snack than Snickerdoodle Dip and my Gingerbread Hot Chocolate?

  1. Mary Ellen! This looks and sounds amazing! What a fun use for chickpeas. Can’t wait to see the cookies you’ve come up with!

  2. Oh this looks super tasty Mary Ellen! I’m definitely going to be making this to help stave off the cookie cravings. I like the idea of just digging right in with a spoon haha. And having it with your gingerbread hot chocolate of course =)

    1. Thanks Cadry! I need to remember apple slices! I couldn’t think of anything healthy to dip into this so I’ve been eating it with a spoon! I’m going to add that to my post!

  3. Snickerdoodles are definitely a favorite of mine and I’ll probably have a few too many this season. I’m so glad you posted a healthier option of this classic. This would be great for breakfast or a snack. My son would love this too. I won’t even tell him about the beans 😉

I'd love to hear from you!
