Cookie Dough Dip

This weekend I had a girls' night. We gathered at a friend's house and played games. We've gotten together a couple of times and everyone brings a snack. Last time I just took a bag of pistachios. They were popular, but I was on facebook the other day and saw a link to "Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip."

The "friends" on facebook said that it was healthy, so I took a minute to click over. There was also a sugar-free version. 

So I made it for my friends. 

I took the dip with a bunch of sliced apples. It was a hit. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. 

Here is the original:

Here is the sugar-free version:

My changes:
I used slightly less than 1 Tbs vanilla. Because that was all I had. It was plenty vanilla-y.
I omitted the chocolate chips. No chocolate for me. 
I used certified gluten-free oats. 
I omitted the non-dairy milk. It was runny enough. 

For next time, I will actually mix everything without the liquid from soaking the dates, and then add the date liquid as needed. I thought that with all the date liquid it was a little runnier than it needed to be. I was looking for a creamy hummus-like texture. 

Despite the slightly more liquid-y than I wanted, it was delicious. Definitely worth doing again.
