Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Hummus
- 1/2 cup canned chickpeas
- 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon milk
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy. Note: My inspiration recipe suggested stirring the chocolate chips in, but it's a little hard to dip that way so I mixed them in with the rest of the ingredients. About 1/2 were chopped while the other 1/2 remained in tact. It was the perfect ratio for dipping!

I'm craving salty and sweet today (ladies, you feel me on that, right?) so I started googling recipes for peanut butter and chocolate anything. I came across tons of cakes and pies and candies but when you've gotten in the healthy mindset the thought of ingesting a ton of sugar isn't all that appealing. I gave up my search and responded to a few FB messages (if you aren't following us yet, check us out) and a friend of mine mentioned that my Tangy Avocado Dip was a new play on hummus. Hummus? No... that can't be possible. I don't like hummus (but I loved the Tangy Avocado Dip). I decided to google hummus and learn more about this mystery food I had long ago decided I didn't like (although I'm not sure I had ever actually tried it). While researching it I came across this recipe for Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Hummus. Normally I would have said "that is disgusting" and moved on but something told me to try it. I gave it a taste, made the "wow this is actually good face" and then called my daughter up (she is my official tester). I gave her a bite on an apple and the look on her face was priceless! She turned to me and said "oh momma... that was good." She went downstairs and my hungry man (my son who is never full) started eating some. I ran out of apple so I grabbed a few whole wheat ritz crackers for dippers. Unbelievable. I called my daughter back up, gave her a sample on the cracker and she says "thank you thank you thank you. That is so much better on a cracker. Can I have more?" Success! I made a tiny batch to begin with (in case it really was nasty) and it was gone in record time. I'm going to post the "tester" recipe so you can give it a go before committing fully. I hope you enjoy it!
