Better Than Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Dip with ApplesThere is one thing that has called my name for the last seven years during September and October, and that is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies. But they are evil, and I'm not going to go there this year I have decided, but I needed something that I could nosh on that was equally as yummy, but would not ruin my healthy lifestyle. That's when my friend, Allison, came into this story. We took our kidlets to the Hands On Museum last week in Olympia, WA to celebrate and create great memories on September 11th. During lunch she takes an apple, puts it into some dip and hands it over. I was in love. It was pureed sweet potato with cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and coconut oil. Really just delish. And that got me thinking.
The next day I created the same and took it to school for a snack. I was so satisfied after I ate it. The next day is when the real magic happened, however. Think hours of homeschooling mixed with adrenal fatigue and low thyroid. CRASH! So I new I wanted something good, but I need something solid. I started pulling things out of the fridge and pantry and this is when I created the Better Than Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Dip ror my Whole 30 Challenge.
