Chocolate Hummus – creamy, rich, chocolate-y and down right addicting! This healthy snack tastes like brownie batter and will become a staple in your kitchen!
Have you seen containers of chocolate hummus at the store and thought to yourself “I wonder what chocolate hummus tastes like?” Well, the short answer is brownie batter. Not spot on brownie batter, but it is pretty darn close!
I first tried chocolate hummus at a friends house and I was admittedly a little nervous. But it doesn’t taste like chickpeas or your traditional hummus at all! It is rich, creamy, and tastes like chocolate. And considering I love all things chocolate, I was immediately hooked.

- Chickpeas (you can use canned or dried beans that you soak first)

How To Make Chocolate Hummus

That is it! Homemade hummus is one of the easiest things you can make, the food processor does all of the work!

Is Chocolate Hummus Good For You
The short answer is yes. The main ingredients is chickpeas, which are high in fiber and have plenty of protein. It is sweetened with maple syrup and honey, so there is not any refined sugar in here.
It is still more of a sweet treat though, so it isn’t something you would label as health food or eat the whole bowl of. But as a dessert it is an amazing choice, and even as a snack, with the right dipper it is definitely good in the right portion size.
This chocolate hummus recipe is so easy to make and you are going to have it on repeat after you try it once. It is creamy and such a great snack. I personally love it with apple slices, so I know I am getting my fruits and veggies in at the same time!
Traditionally hummus is made with tahini (sesame seed paste), but here I used peanut butter. Mainly just because I like the taste. So you can use whichever one you want and it will be perfect either way! Store your hummus in an air tight container for about a week in the fridge.
