Seriously this healthy chocolate hummus recipe is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Made with just wholesome ingredients including chickpeas, cacao and a nut butter, it's also vegan, gluten-free and so damn tastyyy! So much better than the artificial store-bought stuff!
It is lusciously creamy, indulgent yet still light and fluffy. Using just a tin of chickpeas, you can have this incredible hummus today, not tomorrow! No chickpea peeling and 2 hours of cooking required.
How to Make the Healthy Chocolate Hummus
This healthy chocolate hummus recipe takes less than five minutes to throw together, which means it is the perfect healthy snack to serve after school, in the evening or any time of the day really 🙂
This super simple recipe starts out with chickpeas.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know how much I love chickpeas! It’s my favorite ingredient in healthier baking, especially because it packs in a good amount of plant based/ veggie protein.
I've used one tin of chickpeas, which has almost 18g of protein. That’s amazing!
Chickpea, when blended, has a thick and creamy texture, so all you need to do is pop it in a blender, add in peanut/almond/cashew nut butter ( your choice) cacao or cocoa powder, date or rice nectar, vanilla extract and some water.
You might want to adjust sweetness to your liking.
Feel free to had another tablespoon of the syrup, or use non-dairy milk instead of water.
What can I eat chocolate hummus with?
I love eating chocolate hummus with fresh fruit such as apple slices, strawberries, or even sliced bananas. Crackers, rice cakes or oatcakes are also brilliant for dipping in.
