Chocolate Hummus


I know I know what you’re thinking! CHOCOLATE HUMMUS? Isn’t that made with Chickpeas? Well… Yes it is actually!! I got this awesome recipe from Hannah of Bittersweet.

I ADORE Hummus so this totally caught my eye and I HAD to try it. It’s quite delicious! Definitely serve for breakfast with toast, a much healthier Nutella, or I had it with Apples for dessert. It’s more of a semi-sweet taste, probably because I used Dark Cocoa, but I’ll be experimenting with other’s in the future.

The only tweeks I did was remove the coffee powder and add more peanut butter. I started eating this with a spoon… so beware! 🙂

Thanks Hannah!! I could use some of your picture skills as well! 😉

 Recipe courteous of Hannah from Bittersweet.


  • 1 15-Ounce Can Chickpeas
  • 3 oz (6 TBsp)  Peanut Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Dutch-Processed Cocoa Powder (I used Hershey’s Dark Choc. Powder)
  • 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Instant Coffee Powder (opt.)
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 – 4 Tablespoons Water


  1. Put everything in food processor minus the water. Scrape down sides and keep mixing till all blended.
  2. While it’s running slowly add the water, keep checking on it till you like the texture. (I used 3 Tbsps)
  3. Serve on Toast or fruit!

    We LOVE Nutella, so I replaced the peanut butter with 1/2 c. Hazelnuts and processed them first, then added the other ingredients. A pretty close taste with a different texture. Next time, I’m going to try using dried chickpeas that I’ve cooked a bit longer so they process smoother. A nice healthy change to the sweet Nutella!

  6. My family loves Nutella. My dad makes delicious Nutella crepes, and I wonder if this will make a decent substitute? Worth a try!
