Gluten Free Paleo Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Dip.
Yes. Yes, you read that right. I went there.
I have seen lots of recipes for cookie dough dip on Pinterest, but most of them are not paleo friendly, and use sugar and wheat. I wanted to try and create something my kiddos could enjoy by the spoonful if they wanted.
Enter this beautiful thing. Gluten Free, Paleo, Snickerdoodle cookie dough. No eggs to make it completely safe snacking.
It is buttery, sweet, with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon, and the texture of real cookie dough. Before adding the cinnamon, this dough could be used as the base for any cookie dough dip. Add some Enjoy chocolate chips for a chocolate chip cookie dough. Add the zest of a lemon for a more shortbread vibe. It is really endless what you could do with this super easy base. Heck.. add an egg or two and bake it. 😉 (Just kidding.. I don’t actually know if that will work.. bake at your own risk)
The cast of characters..
1 stick of very soft high quality grass fed butter (raw butter would be the best)
1/4 raw honey
1 teaspoon good quality vanilla
1/4 cup coconut flour, sifted for lumps
Pinch of salt if not using salted butter
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon almond flour (optional for texture, but not necessary if you are nut free)
To begin.. you will cream one stick of butter. Yes, I said 1 whole stick. This makes 1 1/2 cups of dip, and a little goes a long way. Also.. don’t get me started on the benefits of good quality grass fed butter for your children. Google it. You will be astounded. Or just read this..
If you start with really soft butter, this can be done easily with a fork.
And mix until it looks like this. You want it completely smooth and well blended.
Add your vanilla, and mix well.
Add in your 1/4 cup of coconut flour and mix until very very smooth. At this point, you can also add in the almond flour to give the dip a tiny bit of texture. If nut free, leave it out.
Add in your cinnamon, and stir.
This took me less than five minutes (not counting the time to soften the butter) to prepare and my kids enjoyed it. Good quality saturated fats are filled with Vitamin K2 and are absolutely essential to growing young bodies. This dip is very rich, and we all had a few apples and called ourselves done. It satisfies a sweet tooth quite well, I must say. All that good fat makes it very filling. It is best served room temp as the butter will harden in the fridge. If you don’t eat it all in one sitting, cover and chill. Bring to room temp before digging in again. 🙂
