You are going to love this 5-Minute Chocolate Hummus. Anything that has chocolate will always be GOOD. Even now in hummus.
I will have to admit when I first heard of chocolate hummus I had my doubts. Why change what is fundamentally one of the greatest dips, ever? Hummus is already a staple recipe in so many vegan households, so I approached this with caution.
But trust me, this totally works. Tahini is a surprisingly versatile ingredient and, along with the chickpeas, these two ingredients match perfectly with the sweetness from the maple syrup and the bitterness from the cocoa powder.
I will often recreate this recipe when I am looking for a healthy sweet snack. I like to eat it with apple slices, strawberries, or bananas!
Regardless of the fact that this is a chocolate hummus, that doesn’t mean it’s not healthy. Cocoa powder is loaded with healthy fats, protein, and fiber, the same goes for chickpeas in terms of protein or fiber. The tahini has got healthy fats too!
How do you like your hummus?
As this recipe suggests, I like mine in chocolate 😀
Jokes on the side, I do have loads of recipes for hummus, so trying something a bit out there that involves hummus had to be done.
