Chocolate chip cookie dough dip recipe

Makes 5 servings

Ingredients:

5 ounces tofu

3 ounces light cream cheese

2 tablespoons rolled oats

2 tablespoons peanut butter

3 tablespoons brown sugar

½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

¼ tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon unsweetened vanilla almond milk

¼ cup chocolate chips

Directions:

Remove tofu from packaging and rinse in cool water to remove excess moisture from packaging.

Place tofu on a plate between two paper towels and place a heavy object, like a 15-ounce can, on top.  After approximately 5 minutes, remove the paper towels.

Use a new, clean paper towel to pat the tofu dry. The goal of compressing tofu is to remove excess water.

Put tofu in the base of a food processor or blender along with the cream cheese, rolled oats, peanut butter, and brown sugar, vanilla, salt and almond milk.

Puree until creamy and smooth, scraping down sides as you go.  The dip's texture should be similar to pudding. Depending on the power of your food processor or blender, you may need to add an additional tablespoon of vanilla almond milk.

Add in the chocolate chips and pulse three or four times to combine. Remove dip and place in a serving bowl. Enjoy with fresh fruit, graham cracker squares, or lightly salted pretzels.
