Happy New Year!

It's New Year's Eve! Only a few more hours left of 2014. I cannot believe it! It has been a great year, and God has blessed me with so many fun times, new friends, great experiences, and a wonderful family. I am so thankful for everything He has given me. I know that 2015 has great things in store, and I cannot wait to see what they are. While you ponder on your year in review and make resolutions for the coming year, enjoy this delicious dip. It is healthy (Chickpeas give the dip a protein boost.), so it will fit in with your new resolutions, and it is a great appetizer for any New Year's party. Enjoy!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Dip (4)
 
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Dip
1 cup oatmeal, blended into a flour
2 cups dry chickpeas
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1 cup applesauce, butter, or a mixture of the two
1 cup milk
1 cup raisins
more oatmeal and raisins to top

Cook the chickpeas according to the instructions on their package. Set aside to cool. In a microwave safe bowl, add the raisins and enough water to cover. Microwave for 30 seconds and then allow the raisins to sit and get plump. In a high speed blender, blend the raisins and soaking water into a paste. Add the remaining ingredients, blending until creamy. (There should be no more lumps of chickpeas.) Stir in the rolled oats and raisins to top and serve with apple slices, pretzels, or graham crackers.
