Snickerdoodle Dessert Hummus Recipe

Hummus is the Arabic word for “chickpea,” and has come to be known in the food world as a savory puree made of chickpeas - often with flavors such as garlic, herb, and red pepper. For this recipe, we took out the savory flavors and added a mix of sugar and spices to make a delicious, earthy dessert dip. This is a dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, peanut-free, low refined sugar, high fiber, and high protein dessert!

Snickerdoodle Dessert Hummus

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of chickpeas, drained and washed

  • 1/4 cup almond butter

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • cinnamon sugar for garnish

Peel your chickpeas (recommended for smoother hummus but not required) and add them in a food processor with the almond butter, maple syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon.

Process for about 30 seconds to one minute, until all the ingredients have mixed and the dip is smooth and creamy.

Move to a serving bowl and garnish with cinnamon sugar on top. Serve with cinnamon pita chips, apple slices, carrots and celery, chocolate squares, or smear on a banana.

Still not convinced? Here’s what people are saying about it:

“You have completely changed the way I look at hummus…” "Aeran www.absandafros.com

“I cooked my garbanzos this afternoon, and my boys are gobbling up the snickerdoodle hummus with apple slices right now. They are thrilled!” " Karen Bowers

“I wasn’t sure if dessert hummus was possible, but this stuff is delicious. I’ve been spooning it straight from the container into my mouth all day long.” " Tina Haupert (www.carrotsncake.com)
