Chocolate Hummus


This sweet riff on classically savory hummus makes for a protein-packed spread that’s great for guilt-free snacking. Earthy and mildly sweet, we like it with Crispin and Gala apples.


    • 1 can of garbanzo beans, strained and rinsed well
    • 3 ½ – 4 tablespoons maple syrup
    • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • 4 tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
    • 2 tablespoons water (optional)


    1. In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients except water, using just 3 ½ tablespoons maple syrup.
    2. Puree until mixture is smooth, about 30-60 seconds. Add water one tablespoon at a time to create desired consistency. Add remaining maple syrup if desired.
