  • food processor
  • rubber spatula


  • 1 can canned garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed well
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter (or nut butter)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp almond extract
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup water, add in small increments
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)


  • Place all ingredients in food processor EXCEPT the water and blend until mixture is smooth. Add the water slowly, until the consistency is creamy and smooth with no chunks or bits of chickpea are detectable. If the "batter" is not creamy enough it will be hard to dip your fruit in.
  • (Optional) If you are wanting to add mini chocolate chips to your brownie batter you can do this 2 ways: add them to your food processor and pulse until they are just mixed in OR after you scoop the hummus into a container, top with the mini chocolate chips.
  • Store in an air-tight container for up to a a week. Serve with berries, sliced apples, crackers, pretzels, Nilla wafers, dried banana chips, etc or eat it plain with a spoon! ...A big, big spoon!


Calories include optional chocolate chips...because are chocolate chips ever really optional?! ;)
