If you’ve noticed anything at all about my blog, you may have figured out that I definitely have a sweet tooth! I love baking and there’s nothing more I love than a stack of waffles or pancakes on a Saturday morning. The thing is, I can’t eat sweets like I want without the unwanted side effects (gaining an extra 10 pounds), so I’ve been trying to find ways to satisfy my sweet tooth and keep my waistline in tact. Which brought me to this chocolate chip peanut butter hummus.
I’d heard about people making dessert hummus using chickpeas in the past, and it always seemed super strange to me. I wondered how in the world it was possible to make a tasty and satisfying dessert from chickpeas… of all things! Well, one day I woke up and decided to give it a try. I had all of the ingredients on hand already, so I figured why not make some Chocolate Chip + Peanut Butter Hummus?
Well folks, I’m here to report that it lived up to the hype! It was certainly a success and I look forward to trying other iterations in the future (perhaps a birthday cake version…). I was feeling generous, so I decided to take it to the office and share it with my coworkers. To my surprise, they loved this Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Hummus too!
Go ahead and give it a shot. Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments below!

This was delicious! Zero guilt treat! My little kids liked it too. I am a huge peanut butter and chocolate fan. This was nice because you still get to have those flavors, but basically some peanut butter is getting replaced by hummus so it’s a lighter flavor. I just put mine in the fridge, so can’t say how it tasted frozen. I am looking forward to making the Cake Batter Hummus one next! I just love all of these hummus desserts! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
I have made this recipe from different blogs, and they call it “cookie dough”. BUT, I adore and will now use, the name you use (and your recipe), because it psychologically makes it healthier, even though for me it is healthy. Instead of cookie dough, it is now hummus :). Which actually makes total sense, because, it is made of chickpeas…
I subbed the agave and brown sugar for just 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and switch between using c.c and raisins. I also usually eat with apple slices! Will try carrots and celery next time. Thank you!
