A Recipe for 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 because anyway; 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
- 2 tsp tahini
- 1/2 tsp salt
- water as needed to thin
- Blend beans, 3 tbsp of maple syrup, cocoa powder, tahini, and salt until smooth.
- Taste and add remaining maple syrup if desired or water if too thick.
