Dark Chocolate Dessert Hummus
When I saw that hummus companies were making dark chocolate dessert hummus, I was intrigued. Hummus and chocolate are two of my favorite things, so putting them together sounded like my kind of healthy dessert.
I just had to make some of my own. This chocolate hummus tastes a lot like brownie batter.
I haven't tried any of the store-bought stuff yet, so I have no idea how this compares. I would rather keep making my own anyway. That way I can control the ingredients and the amount of sweetener.
Healthy Chocolate Hummus
This vegan Dark Chocolate Hummus is probably one of the healthiest, yet indulgent tasting desserts that I have made. Yes, it is sweetened with maple syrup, so it could be a bit healthier, but I have yet to make this with stevia, because it is so good as it is.
Since this is made with garbanzo beans, the protein and fiber slow down the sugar entering your body, making this vegan dessert dip a lot healthier than other desserts.
I know a lot of people who still buy hummus instead of making it themselves. It literally only takes about 5 minutes to make, and it is cheaper than store-bought. Plus, you can customize it to your liking.This healthy Dark Chocolate Hummus is made in about 5 minutes. Eat it on toast, with fruit, graham crackers or pretzels, or by the spoonful. Click To Tweet
