If you love peanut butter, make this. If you love peanut butter cookies, definitely make this. If you love dip, HOLY COW, skip that salad and make peanut butter chocolate chip dessert hummus!
I’m kidding. You might be trying to eat healthily, so that salad is a good idea. But here’s the good news – this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Dessert “Hummus” is loaded with real food too.
High in protein and fiber, this dip features whole, simple ingredients. It’s gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, vegan, naturally-sweetened, and sun butter makes it nut-free. Oh, and it takes about 5 minutes to toss into the food processor and blend.
So if that sounds good to you, make this.
This Dessert Hummus is:
- Real Food
- Vegan (if you use maple syrup)
Makes 2 1/3 cups
- 1 3/4 cups cooked white beans or chick peas (canned or home cooked)
- 1/3 cup maple syrup or honey (see tips for more variations)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt (if using home cooked beans and/or salt-free peanut butter
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 2-4 tbsp milk (optional) (dairy-free works!)
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips, to taste (optional)
Combine all ingredients except milk and chocolate chips in a food processor and puree until very smooth (2-3 minutes, depending on how powerful your machine is). Thin with milk if necessary to reach desired consistency.
Stir in chocolate chips and eat with a spoon, or serve with chopped fruit and graham crackers.
- Sweetener - You can use 2/3 cup brown or white sugar.
- Don’t like peanut butter? Substitute peanut butter for a milder nut butter, like cashew or almond.
- Nut-free? Use sun butter or desired substitute.
- Chocolate chips - If you’re dairy-free, I like Enjoy Life chocolate chips (affiliate link). FRUGAL TIP: Try the Moser Roth dark chocolate from Aldi and just break it into chunks!
- Chocoholic? Add a few tbsp of cocoa powder to the mix, then blend in thoroughly.
