I don’t know about you, but sometimes I see a recipe and am so intrigued by the ingredients that I have to make it and find out for myself if it’s any good. This Chocolate Hummus recipe definitely falls into that category.

 I’ve had this healthy Chocolate Dip in my to-make file for some time now. With strawberries so plentiful right now, I finally took the time to make the dip.  

You’ll be super surprised at what the secret healthy ingredient is!  Are you ready for it?

It’s garbanzo beans!  Yes, this is hummus, but with chocolate!

What a great little snack this turned out to be! Thick, rich, and chocolatey. Chocolate Hummus is perfect for dipping graham crackers, strawberries, or bananas.

I certainly didn’t feel guilty feeding this to my kids.

What?  You said you wanted strawberries and chocolate for a snack?  

Why sure, have all you want!  The kids asked for this at every snack and meal until it was gone. (I never told them what was in it.)

Recipe Tips:

  • Using a high-powered blender really makes this dip super creamy.  (like a Vitamix)
  • We definitely preferred the chocolate hummus chilled over room temperature.  (It’s chilled in the photo above, when room temperature, it is darker and not as thick.)

  1. Chickpeas!?!?!? That is surprising! I'm going to have to try this for sure! We'd love for you to link up with us for Tasty Tuesday over at aletteredlife.blogspot.com

  2. Interesting idea! I'd love to make this, have everyone rave about it and then tell them the secret ingredient!

  3. I love this addition of chick peas! Guilt-free chocolate recipes are the best ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I love healthy recipes using garbanzos. I'm trying this tonight! Pinned ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Interesting idea. I've never tried a chickpeas in a recipe. I'll have to try it sometime – thanks for the tip ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Definitely trying this! Yes, I got caught when I saw chocolate in your title… ๐Ÿ™‚ Coming to you from the blog hop! Have a fabulous week!

  7. That looks like an interesting recipe. I will definitely give it a try. I won't be telling my husband what is in it though, that's for sure. As thick as it looks on those strawberries, it almost looks like it is thick enough to use as a frosting maybe.

    I haven't been able to locate it over the past few years but I do think I might know where it's hiding, but I have a recipe for a Mock Pecan Pie that's very good. There are no pecans at all in the pie so it's great for those who either don't like nuts or are allergic to them because instead of the pecans you use pinto beans. It's awesome and no one could tell it's not the real thing unless you told them. I got that recipe years ago from someone who brought it to a potluck at the place I had my first job. She never told anyone until they tasted it to avoid people sticking their noses up and not trying it first. I was shocked at how good it was so I can imagine this recipe you have is probably good too.

    Your daughter is adorable in the video.

  8. This looks so good! I wonder what it's like if I sub Stevia for the sugar? Do you know anyone who's tried that?

  9. This looks delicious. I have seen different recipes using black beans and chickpeas and wondered how they would taste. I will have ot give it a try. I am hopping over from the Nifty Thrifty Party and have become your newest follower. Hope you have a chance to stop by and perhaps follow me back.

  10. Chickpeas – well I never.

    I found this through the Create and Inspire linky party. I linked in a pork and apple curry.
    Have a lovely week.

  11. chickpeas!! I would never have thought!!

    (found this post from TidyMom)

  12. These are such good recipes; Kids don't know the difference. I would be so grateful if you linked up at Mom's Library! Hope to see you there. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Healthy chocolate?? Your title really caught my attention because this really didn't seem possible, but I'm going to have to give it a try because I LOVE chocolate! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Yum! This looks delicious! Im going to have to give it a try to soothe my chocolate cravings!
