Chocolate-covered Katie

A friend mentioned loving the Cookie Dough Dip from this blog, which features healthy/healthier dessert recipes. They are not sugar-free, but focus on sweetening without added sugars, and often sub healthier starches for regular flour

  1. Her recipes aren't very good. I've tried to infamous cookie dough dip & the pie...Both weren't very good at all. Her nutritional information is also off on some of her recipes & her serving sizes are ridiculously small. I am not sure why she has such a following...Just not a fan, i suppose.

    1. I'm sorry, but that just looks awful.

      1. Stupid question, but what the hell is the fun of dessert if it's healthy? That's why fruit exists. Literally every single health-conscious dessert recipe I've tried has left me completely unsatisfied. I'd rather have just a couple bites of something indecently rich. Just looking at those recipes makes me want to go split a hot fudge brownie sundae with someone. Extra hot fudge, please.

          I don't disagree with you, but those with certain allergies and other medical considerations don't have your options. I initiated this thread because requests for such recipes frequently appear on this board:

        2. Try this glorious recipe:

          I have made a batch a week since I discovered them. I prefer then without the optional chips inside, I just like them coated in the chocolate/coconut oil.

          1. I like her blog! I mean I like to look at what she makes. I've tried a few of her recipes and they are OK. I can often find a way to improve them. Like her breakfast cookies, just add a tablespoon of sucanat and they tasted pretty good for breakfast.

            As someone who is allergic to wheat, dairy and eggs, it is a lot of fun to read her blog. She is upbeat and unpretentious, with some fun ideas. I do "like fruit" too. I just eat it a lot during the day and sometimes I would like something else.
