All About This Dark Chocolate Hummus

  • Flavor: This healthy chocolate hummus has the best decadent chocolaty flavor. Michael swears it tastes like a really good chocolate cake frosting. Which it could most definitely be used for! The cinnamon, maple syrup, and vanilla really warm up the flavor to where you don't have any remnants of the chickpeas flavoring. Think warm, rich, chocolate cake frosting and you're there!
  • Texture: This hummus is creamy, fudgy, and so smooth that you will want to eat it by the spoonful! The tahini and olive oil help to give it the best texture. If you follow the recipe below you will get the absolute perfect consistency for dipping and spreading, but you can thin it out as much as you prefer by adding some water to the blender.
  • Ease: This homemade hummus is one of the easiest recipes to make. Grab your blender or food processor and you're ready to go! A beginner can easily master this recipe by following the detailed instructions below.
  • Use: Dip it, spread it, do anything you'd like with this chocolaty treat! Try eating this creamy dessert hummus with fruits like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, apples, or banana; with nuts like almonds, walnuts, or pecans; or on toast, graham crackers, rice cakes, pretzels, or baked goods.

What You Will Need

To make this recipe, you will need the following ingredients. See the full recipe card at the end of this post for detailed amounts and instructions! 

  • Chickpeas - One 15 ounce can of chickpeas aka garbanzo beans will get you about 2 cups of hummus, so double up if you want a bigger batch! Make sure you're getting the unsalted ones when doing your shopping.
  • Tahini - Tahini is my pick when making a creamy hummus. It is ground sesame seeds and has a thinner consistency and milder flavor than other nut butters like almond butter and peanut butter, but you can feel free to use whichever you have on hand.
  • Maple syrup - I love the flavoring of maple syrup paired with cocoa, but you can always use the sweetener of your choice. Agave syrup, date syrup, or honey would be good options.
  • Cocoa powder - Any kind will work in this recipe, but my favorite is Navitas.
  • Cinnamon & vanilla extract - To get that chocolate frosting flavor!
  • Olive oil - The olive oil in this recipe helps to give the hummus its silky smooth texture.
  • Sea salt - A touch of salt helps to enhance the best chocolaty flavor.
