Who doesn’t love cookie dough? And chocolate chip cookies? No worries here, this dip is safe to eat, doesn’t contain any egg at all and it’s completely healthy! It’s not only healthy but actually really good for you. This dip contains all whole ingredients and tastes delicious. Like, crazy delicious. If you are looking for a fun dip for the Superbowl, I think you just found it.
Cacao is basically raw chocolate bean, without all the milk, sugar and other additives that make up processed chocolate. Raw cacao is packed with antioxidants that destroy free radicals in your body. These free radicals can accelerate the aging process and may even increase your risk for heart disease and certain cancers. That basically means cacao has good stuff that fights the bad stuff. Flax seed contains omega-3-fatty-acids, powerful antioxidants and fiber. I love raw honey. Basically raw honey is honey that has not been processed or treated in any way.
The beauty of this dip is it can be served as an appetizer (and a great healthy alternative to not-so-healthy dishes) or even as a dessert. And a healthy dessert at that. Or you could just spoon it out of the container.
Not that I would know anything about that.
