Brownie Batter Hummus

This is a really fun recipe to serve as a fruit dip at any type of event. I served this at a ladies social and everyone freaked over it. It’s not very sweet so it works great with fruit. It’s even great with wafers and pretzels.

I got so many compliments on this recipe. No one even had a clue it was made from chickpeas. You would never know. In all honesty one would think it was made from cream cheese but this is lower in calories and excellent in flavor. 

  • 1 15 oz. can garbanzo beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 3 Tbsp. water (or as needed)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the rinsed and drained garbanzo beans, unsweetened cocoa, pure maple syrup, honey, water, vanilla extract, and salt. 
  2. Puree until the mixture is smooth, and lumps no longer exist. 
  3. Add extra water if needed to reach desired consistency. 
  4. Serve as a dip with fresh sliced fruit, pita chips dusted with cinnamon and sugar, graham crackers, or pretzel sticks.
