Have you heard of chocolate hummus before? Several weeks ago friends of ours served us chocolate hummus as a snack with apple slices and pretzels. It was so good and certainly did not taste like it was made with chickpeas! Who ever thought of combining a can of chickpeas and some cocoa powder and making this delicious concoction? Who thinks of these things?chocolate hummus


Since we were introduced to this crazy concoction I’ve made it twice! Think I may be addicted. It’s just so easy and so tasty. People can’t believe it’s chickpeas either! It would also be good served with fresh strawberries too.chocolate hummus


Chocolate Hummus




1-15oz can chickpeas (1 ½ cups cooked)

¼ cup tahini

¼ cup maple syrup, to taste

½ cup cocoa powder

1 tsp. vanilla

¼ tsp. kosher salt

1-2 Tbsp. water




Drain the can of chickpeas. Add the can of drained chickpeas to the bowl of your food processor along with the tahini, maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla and kosher salt. Puree for 30 seconds and then scrape down the sides of the bowl. Taste, add more maple syrup if desired. Add the 1-2 Tbsp. of water and puree again until it comes to a creamy consistency. Store refrigerated for 7-10 days.chocolate hummus


Serve with pretzels, green apple slices and strawberries.
