Easy Chocolate Hummus
I have to admit when I first came across chocolate hummus at the store, I thought it sounded revolting. I decided to purchase it anyway because; hey it’s chocolate how bad could it be? Thankfully, my willingness to try a new product paid off and I loved it.
There are lots of variations of chocolate hummus recipes. Below is the recipe I like to make at home for my family that is kid tested and approved. This is a super easy weeknight dessert and a great option for school lunches. The kids believe they are eating a decadent chocolate dessert and I am happy they are eating garbanzo beans and fruit!
Chocolate hummus pairs well with fresh fruit, graham crackers, cookies, bagels, pita chips, or pretzels!
- 1 1/2 cups canned or cooked garbanzo beans
- 3-4 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp tahini
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup pitted dates
- water as needed to thin
- chocolate chips for garnish (optional)
- Blend ingredients together adding just enough water to get the blender moving. Process until smooth. Add salt, or water as needed.
