Chocolate Hummus

Prep Time

5 minutes


1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

4 T maple syrup

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp salt

4 T unsweetened cocoa or cacao

2+ T water


In a food processor, combine all ingredients except the water.  Blend until smooth, adding water by the tablespoon until desire consistency.


You can use any type of bean, including cannellini or black beans.  

I use about 6 tablespoons of water when I make this, because I like a smoother, creamier consistency.
