Make This Chocolate Hummus Recipe the Star of Your Fall Snacks
With all the pumpkin spice, apple cinnamon, and other decadent fall treats teasing us in the grocery store, here’s a recipe for snacking healthfully with a pinch of indulgence: homemade chocolatey dessert hummus. It’s a chickpea-based, maple syrup-sweetened alternative to sugary desserts and bland appetizers. Slightly sweet, a little nutty, and totally airy, the mousse-like dip makes for both effortless entertaining and a special afternoon snack.
We use sunflower seed butter instead of tahini in our version of the trendy dip; it’s a sweeter match with the maple syrup and cocoa powder, while more neutral-tasting (and more allergy-friendly) than a nut butter. Throw it all in a food processor or blender, along with rinsed chickpeas and a touch of salt and vanilla extract, and say hello to a whipped mixture. Place on a cheese board, surround with your favorite fruits and crackers, and get to dunkin’.
