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!
