Hummus has forever been a protein-rich dip for your veggies and chips, a spread on your greek wraps and much more. Hummus is simply a blend of chickpeas enriched with 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…and have everyone shocked that it’s made from chickpeas.
This is a great clean-eating recipe that’s gluten free, vegan, and with no refined sugars! It’s completely a feel-good dessert.
It should also be noted that after we made this, we were expecting our coworkers here to reject it for it’s “healthy” factor…but instead, it was completely devoured (with rave reviews!).
Your next gathering you will absolutely have to try this. Or, make yourself a batch to snack on for a few days (if you can make it last that long…).
