Chocolate Chip–Peanut Butter Hummus

Written by Ashley Palmer | March 6, 2012

Who would think that a dessert-flavored hummus could be appetizing, let alone rave-worthy? Trust me, I was skeptical at first, but this sweet and creamy hummus definitely satisfied my sweet tooth.

By leaving out the eggs, milk, and butter found in many desserts, you can save yourself some extra calories and help save animals too! Translation: This is a dessert that you can feel good about eating. What more could you want? ;-)

Chocolate Chip–Peanut Butter Hummus
1 15-oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Place the chickpeas, peanut butter, and agave nectar in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer to a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Serve with animal or graham crackers.

Makes 6 servings

    Amazing! Made with 1/8 cup agave nectar instead and added a 1/8 cup of local honey.

  • Lulu says:

    Switched it up to be with maple syrup, chunky p.b and added cocoa into it instead of chocolate chips…tasty dippin’! Thanks for sharing.

    I’m probably the only vegetarian around that is NOT a fan of hummus and I can’t imagine making it sweet would improve it. I hate the grainy texture.

  • Ellen says:

    We try to keep our toddler away from desserts and sweet foods so we don’t mess up her palate. But occasionally I just love watching her lose herself to a vegan smore or something similar. This recipe was incredible. She loves dipping, she loves hummus, and I think she would have eaten the whole bowl given have the chance. It’s delicious too. Thanks!

  • Ruth says:

    I swear, you read my mind with this post–I’m so glad I stumbled upon it! I have always been a little so-so on hummus. It either seems to salty or too spicy, or just something that seems like it should be sweet instead of savory. This looks like the perfect compromise! I absolutely love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter and can hardly wait to try making it! I noticed you recommend serving it with graham crackers; do you think it would be too strange to put on celery sticks?

  • Robert Rogers says:

    ANIMAL CRACKERS?! PETA how could you? ;) Just kidding. I love the look of this recipe. It looks delicious. Thanks for sharing!

  • James says:

    Obviously we’re trying to keep this healthy and lo-cal but what could be better than substituting nutella for the agave?

  • Billy Bob Ellison says:

    I just tried this on fried chicken-it was freakin’ awesome!
    Thank you PETA!

  • Sunny Terry Kuehnel; says:

    I had my doubts about this one. But it is frigging awesome! It kind of reminds me of when my grandma used to make chocolate chip cookies, and I would sneak some of the dough.

  • Jen says:

    absolute obsession with this snack! soooo yum.

  • DiBeth says:

    We served it on mini pita breads- brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with cinnamon/sugar then “baked” for a few minutes in the oven. YUM!

  • Cynth says:

    I have just switched to a vegan diet, and thought that hummus was just made with tahini. This sounds so good, and so easy to make! I can’t wait to try it.

  • Erin says:

    I just made this but I used white beans and sugar instead of agave. Since sugar is less sweet, it needed a little more than 1/4 cup. Anyway, it was amazing. All three of my kids, none of whom will eat hummus normally, loved it and asked for more!

  • Saleana says:

    I’m a bit nervous to try this, but once I get all the ingredients I’ll have to give it a go!

  • California Callie says:

    amazing! even though I am not a vegetarian, 100% I will try it! :)

  • Chelsea says:

    I’m not a vegetarian, but I will definitely try this as I do enjoy many vegan dishes.

  • Brin says:

    this was realllly good! my only suggesting is adding a PINCH of sea salt.

  • dbakeca says:

    i would try these…if i were a vegetarian…

  • sir jorge says:

    wow that’s impressive

  • Amber Dawn says:

    I just tried this recipie and it was a-maaay-zing! i didnt want to buy the agave so i used honey

  • KY says:

    It looks so good! I bet it would taste good with apples or cinnamon pita chips.

    HMMM would it be just as good with honey? I rarely use honey and I have so much left and I don’t want to buy agave nectar that I know I won’t use often.

  • Walter says:

    Amazing! The recipes in this book that I have tried really match the tastes that I’ve been looking for, like “Roasted Apples with Green Apple Sauce and Cinnamon Ice Cream”. I have just discovered this through http://www.gourmandia.net.

  • Carol says:

    I was just saying that I am going to make Hummus this weekend and eat it with my Baked Lentil Chips, but I think I am going to try the Hummus with the CC in it. In the picture you show of this it kind of reminds me of Cookie Dough.

  • Nassim says:

    MMMMMMM delicious…I’ve tried it just after dinner as I found the recipe….i love hummus, but this sweet version is really interesting!!

  • Adrienne says:

    I’m going to try this, it looks great! My 7 yo is going to love it and I think it’ll make a fun snack on occasion. Thanks!
