Chocolate Brownie Batter Hummus

Chocolate Brownie Batter Hummus

Brownie Batter Hummus

It seems my son only likes beans in two forms.  One is infused with ham like in grandma’s Bacon Baked Beans and the other is when it is hidden in the form of chocolate.  My girls love it too.  This recipe came about after my wonderful cousin brought me a sweet little container of Brownie Batter Hummus… and I was hooked.  I worked and worked until I found two ways of making it without sugar.  Sugar is my arch nemesis.  It really doesn’t like me and I don’t particularly like it… I prefer things bittersweet and generally not followed by aches and pains, so I’m always looking for ways of excluding it from my diet.  This one… is a win.

Ingredients:

OR in place of dates & honey:

Method:

  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  2. Spoon into a bowl and top with Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips, Enjoy Life or Pascha’s 85% Dark Chocolate Chips.
  3. Serve with Apple slices, celery sticks, Coconut Chips, or Tortilla Chips.
