Chickpeas are always thought of as the ingredient required to make hummus and a bunch of other healthy foods. What you probably don’t know, is that chickpeas can help you create some of your most craveable foods as well without anyone even noticing. It’s crazy that chickpeas, being such a versatile food, are not incorporated into baking and cooking more often. Check out these recipes to see how you can make the most of your can of chickpeas!

Ever had a blondie, that is the opposite of a brownie? Well, this is it! Packed with doughy flavor and some chocolate chips, this square will make your tastebuds very happy.

7. Hummus Mashed Potatoes

You won’t believe how thick and creamy these mashed potatoes are when you take your first bite. While potatoes can be bland, this mashed masterpiece is anything but!

8. Chocolate Dessert Hummus

Hummus has forever been a protein-rich dip for your veggies and chips, a spread on your greek wraps and much more. It’s a very simple blend of chickpeas, oils, and seasoning to make it perfect. So, what exactly is dessert hummus? All the same things! Except, instead of the savory seasonings and oils, you add in sweet and decadent options to make a dessert dip that will be gone before you know it.

12. Cake Batter Dessert Hummus

We love dessert hummus! This sweet protein-packed treat is gracing the aisles of grocery stores, but with a hefty price tag! Next time you’re there, put it back on the shelf and grab a few inexpensive ingredients to make it at home instead. We love the chocolate version, but there’s perhaps no better kind than funfetti cake batter!
