Chocolate hummus uses mostly healthy ingredients and contains a large portion of both fiber and protein. There is some sugar from the maple syrup and chocolate chips, but when you use baking chocolate, you cut out a lot of added sugar.

Ingredients to make Chocolate Hummus

When you make chocolate hummus, here’s what we suggest you use as well as some suggestions for substitutes where you can.

  • Chickpeas - You can use dry or canned chickpeas for this.
  • Unsweetened almond milk - You could use another type of milk if you prefer, but we find almond works well.
  • Baking cocoa - You can use bittersweet or dark chocolate, both work well for this.
  • Maple syrup - If you do not follow a vegan diet, you could use honey.
  • Vanilla extract 
  • Chocolate chips - We use these for garnish, or you could mix them into the hummus for some added texture.
  • Dippables - You can use crackers, fruits, nuts, pretzels, cookies, or your favorite dippers.
