Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Hummus

Technically speaking, chocolate chip cookie dough hummus is considered a dessert hummus. Also technically speaking, dessert is served after you’ve had dinner - but rules are there to be adapted!

Have your kids wilfully eating chickpeas and begging for more with this sweet recipe!

Prep Time: 5 minutes


1 Tin chickpeas - strained and rinsed 3 times

40g Plain cashews

5 Tbsp Maple syrup

1 Tsp vanilla extract (you may wish to leave this out to reduce the sweetness)

3 Tbsp rolled oats

1/4 Tsp salt

45g Dark chocolate chips


Combine all the ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a blender or food processor.

Blend or puree the ingredients until everything is smooth and combined well, about 2 minutes. (See notes below for the maple syrup and salt.)

Fold in the chocolate chips and serve. Alternatively, store the hummus plain and add chocolate chips just before serving.


Maple Syrup: Adjust the amount of maple syrup to your liking. You might be able to get away with less, but you may find that this amount is just enough to counteract the “bean” taste that kids seem to struggle with.

Salt: If you’re using canned beans and/or salted cashews, start with less salt. Taste the hummus when it’s done and add more as desired.
