Brownie Batter Chocolate Hummus is the perfect sweet, healthy snack and you won't believe how delicious it tastes with fruit, pretzels, and more.
Brownie Batter Chocolate Hummus is surprisingly delicious and no one will guess it is made with beans!
Chocolate and chickpeas! Before you immediately call me crazy, please give it a chance because it is a shockingly good and healthy dessert option. Kids go crazy for it and if you are a Weight Watcher, it's 0 SmartPoints on the new Freestyle plan if you make it with stevia or a low calorie sweetener.
While I would love to take credit for this genius idea, the first time I saw it was on Shark Tank and since then I have seen all kinds of dessert hummus recipes popping up. Like most, I was skeptical, but finally caved and tried it after a friend told me her kids were obsessed with it and she felt like she was winning in the Mom department. I mean getting your kids to eat loads of fruit and chocolate flavored chickpeas is a pretty successful afternoon snack.
When looking for recipe inspiration, I started with some of the grocery store options, but found they were packed with sugar, so I quickly turned to the internet for some Chocolate Hummus inspiration. The basic recipe, which I am sharing today, is essentially just chickpeas, cocoa powder, sweetener, and almond milk. The fun comes in when you think about all the ways you can customize it. Think chocolate chips, tahini, coconut, nut butter, cinnamon, and more. I will be sharing all kinds of ideas below, so don't miss it.
In terms of serving this tasty chocolate dessert hummus, fruit is the first thing that comes to mind. Strawberries, pears, apples, and pineapple are all pretty delicious. From there you can reach for things like pretzels, graham crackers, cinnamon pita chips, any thin and crispy cookie, or even toast points. My friend even puts it on her kid's waffles in the morning.
Products I used to make this Brownie Batter Chocolate Hummus:
Customizable weekly meal plans that include Weight Watchers® friendly recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, nutritional information, shopping lists, and more...
If using maple syrup or another sweetener, you will need 4-6 tbsp for 8 servings.
Look for a Dutch-processed or alkalized cocoa powder since they are less bitter and will result in a sweeter hummus.
