Brownie Batter Hummus Ingredients
- 1 cup chickpeas, drained

How to Make Brownie Batter Hummus
This sweet hummus is super easy to make, just like regular hummus. All you do is combine all of your ingredients in a food processor and pulse until chickpeas are thoroughly mixed and smooth. This easy snack idea only takes 10 minutes and gives you four servings of delectable, healthy dipping & topping for fruit, bread, or graham crackers!
How to Store and Serve Brownie Batter Hummus
Once prepped, this specialty hummus will last for 4 days. Find four dual-compartment meal prep containers that work as snack boxes, like these teal MPOF containers. Divide your hummus into 4 half-cup portions into the containers, then put your graham crackers and strawberries into the other slot. Store in the fridge until it's time for snacking.
And believe it or not, you can (and we don't blame you!) freeze this! Store your delectable hummus in a freezer-safe airtight container, or store each portion in separate containers. It should keep for up to 6 months. Just remember to leave room for frozen hummus to expand. Defrost in the fridge overnight and you're good to go!
Tips and Customizations for Brownie Batter Hummus
Pair this with some crackers like Ritz, rice cakes, apples, pretzels, grapes, and other fruits. Think of it as you would use peanut butter or Nutella.
Let the flavors meld together by chilling the hummus for several hours or overnight.
Use the best quality cacao powder you can find, or if you have to, use cocoa powder instead!
If you don't have a food processor, you can use a high speed blender to make this hummus instead. If you don't have a blender that can handle these ingredients, mash the chickpeas by hand instead. Start by microwaving them in 30-second increments, and checking the consistency to see if it's mashable. It will make it easier to mash if they're warm.
Swap the maple syrup out and use honey or agave syrup instead, or a monk fruit liquid sweetener to reduce the sugar content.
Use gluten-free crackers if need be.
