Indulge your sweet tooth while fueling your mind, body and soul with this nutritious, indulgent-tasting brownie batter hummus (it tastes like brownie or chocolate pound cake batter). Just what you need to fuel up before your next long run or mega-errand list!


  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed very well, drained
  • 1/2 cup nondairy milk (or dairy, as desired)–more , as needed
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 11/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Optional toppings: mini semisweet chocolate chips, pomegranate seeds, chopped toasted nuts or flake coconut


  1. Place the chickpeas, milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt in a food processor or high speed blender. Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape sides of the bowl periodically. Add more milk, as needed, until desired level of creaminess is achieved.


Storage: Store the hummus in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Bean Options: An equal size can of white beans (cannellini are really creamy) or black beans can be used in place of the chickpeas.

Sweetener Options: Feel free to use the sweetener of your choice here. If using a granulated sweetener, you will most likely need to add an extra tablespoon or more of milk.
