Chocolate hummus tastes great with apples, bananas and anything else that pairs well with chocolate. It’s a protein-filled dessert to help you kick off the New Year.
How to make it:
- 15-ounce can of chickpeas (can be slightly larger or smaller in amount), well-drained and rinsed
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- ¼ cup maple syrup (adjust to taste)
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ¼ cup of water
Place ingredients in a blender and blend until very smooth. It takes several minutes to create a smooth texture, but it’s worth the wait. Add a bit more maple syrup, if desired. You might wish to add another tablespoon or two of water to achieve your preferred dipping consistency.
Optional twists on this recipe: Add a scoop of peanut butter to make peanut butter and chocolate hummus. Serve with graham crackers or pretzels for a flavorful snack.
