  • 1.5 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or liquid sweetener of your choice
  • 3 Tbsp. cacao powder or dutch processed cocoa/dark cocoa
  • 2 Tbsp. almond butter or cashew, peanut, coconut butter
  • 2 Tbsp. espresso or 1 Tbsp. instant coffee dissolved in 2 Tbsp. hot water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Water or milk or aquafaba if needed for thinner consistency


To Prepare the chickpeas

  • You can follow this process to prepare chickpeas from dried. The basic steps include soaking them for 8 hours, then straining, rinsing, and then boiling until tender (35-40 minutes).
  • If you're using tinned chickpeas, then you don't have to do any prep. Although, if you want super creamy results, you cook the chickpeas with 1/2 tsp baking soda for 15-20 minutes until the chickpeas become mushy.

To Blend the chocolate hummus

  • Add all of the ingredients to a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. This can take several minutes depending on how smooth you want the chocolate hummus to be.

  • Finally, taste the hummus and adjust any of the ingredients; adding more sweetener, nut butter, cocoa powder, etc.
