"Cookie Dough" Dessert Hummus

Raw cookie dough is delicious.  Unfortunately, it is also not one of the wisest choices of desserts.  Which is why I think that this hummus recipe from The Wannabe Chef is clever and awesome.  It is a hummus.  Yes!  It is made with chickpeas, but honestly tastes like peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough.  The key is to peel the chickpeas after you cook them.  That little layer can really destroy the texture and taste and make it obvious that you are eating chick peas.  Otherwise, I think it is great and can be a fun snack or dessert.  I like to put it on celery like a traditional hummus or even just eat a spoonful- raw cookie dough style!



  • 2 cups cooked and PEELED chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
  • 1/2 Tablespoon vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

In a food processor, add the first 4 ingredients and process until the hummus is smooth and emulsified. Stir in chocolate chips. Enjoy!
