Peanut Butter Hummus with Chocolate Chips

Yeah, you read that title right. This is a super simple dessert hummus. The kind of hummus that satisfies your sweet tooth. The kind that gets your kids to eat beans, but they think it's a treat.

Trust me.

Here's what you'll need:
1 can (15-oz.) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup agave nectar (can use 1/3 cup for added sweetness)
1/2 cup vegan semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

Combine all ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a food processor. Pulse/blend until smooth and creamy.

Depending on the peanut butter you're using, you might need to thin it out a little. Just add a few spoonfuls of your favorite non-dairy milk if necessary.

Empty into a bowl, and stir in your chocolate chips.

That's it! Enjoy.

You can dip in some apples, celery, animal crackers, etc.. or even spread it on toast. But my favorite? Graham crackers! They were amazing!

Want to go for broke?

Put a portion of the hummus in a microwaveable dish. Heat for about 25 seconds (the chocolate will soften and start to melt). Then dip in some graham crackers. I swear to you, it's like eating warm, gooey cookie dough. Do it. Do it right now!

You can make it more 'adult' by leaving out the chocolate chips. But who wants that?

Note: I did make it with two different brands of peanut butter. MaraNatha organic resulted in a creamier and denser version. Skippy Natural came out a bit more fluffy, and seemed a bit more oily. The MaraNatha had a more true peanut taste, but both were delicious.
