Is it wrong that I find joy in deceiving people?! For many, starting a plant-based diet means trying lots of substitutes. Meat substitutes, cheese substitutes, and even dessert substitutes. Yes, people even substitutes for dessert! You might be thinking about coconut based ice cream, or even almond milk ice cream. However, I’m talking about beans people. BEANS. There’s a whole world of dessert hummus out there waiting to be tapped into. Like this Cake Batter Dessert Hummus for example. It’s eerily similar to the real thing!
This isn’t my first rodeo with dessert hummus. My first experiment with it was last year with this Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Hummus. A whole new world opened up! I was seriously amazed. I took it to work the next day and my colleagues shared my same sentiments. It was nuts. I knew that this meant I would have to try different variations in the future. This Cake Batter Dessert Hummus was first on my list.
Does it taste exactly like the real deal? Not exactly, but it’s a damn good substitute if you’re looking for a sweet treat packed with protein. In addition, it’s guilt-free! Eat all you want! What I love most about this Cake Batter Dessert Hummus recipe is that it’s ready in literally 5 minutes. What’s even better is that you probably have most, if not all of these ingredients in your kitchen already. Because my food processor recently died on me, I used my blender instead. Thankfully it worked! Perhaps a food processor would have been more efficient, but you gotta do what you gotta do, right?
I’m always amazed at the versatility of beans, but turning a can of beans into a dessert takes the cake! See what I did there?! Anywho, give this recipe a try and let me know what you think in the comments below! I’d love to know if you successfully deceived anyone by sharing this treat! 🙂

I made this and I wasn’t that impressed. I guess I had my hopes up too high that it would be amazingly delicious. It was reasonably good. So I decided to add cinnamon to turn it into Snickerdoodle Hummus. I will probably dip apples in it for breakfast.
Super easy and so yummy! I didn’t have any sprinkles so mine was not very pretty but it tasted so good… I added a little extra almond butter because I LOVE almond butter but that is not necessary. 10/10 it was perfect on melba toast.
