It’s dessert…it’s hummus…it’s DESSERT Hummus!

Here's a creamy and crunchy hummus recipe that’s actually a dessert. It tastes like edible cookie dough that’s high in protein and oh so satisfying! Say hello to Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Hummus!

Dessert Hummus is quickly becoming the new trend. Just look around Whole Foods or other similar health food stores and you’ll likely find many different flavors. Dessert hummus is basically the base of a traditional hummus, with a slightly sweeter spin. In this recipe we’re making Cookie Dough. Sound good?!

Hummus on its own is an incredibly healthy snack. Garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas), which are high in protein, fiber, iron and zinc, are at the base combined with olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and spices. In this sweeter version, we omit the savory stuff and add nut butter, natural sweetener, cinnamon and vegan chocolate chips! Mix it all together for your inner child’s dream come true; raw cookie dough that you can EAT!

    I didn't realize that getting the mix creamy would also heat it up...when I added the chocolate chips they melted. It's OK, I like it and will add a few more chocolate chips later.

    Tried it once but won't be making again. Had to add a lot more peanut butter, honey (we don't have maple syrup here) and chocolate chips to make it more like a dessert than just a weird hummus. It's also awfully filling and not the kind of thing I enjoy to end an already filling meal.
