Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dessert Hummus

If you have not tried a dessert hummus NOW is the time! This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dessert Hummus is so good! It is loaded with mini chocolate chips and has a taste so close to cookie dough that makes it irresistible. Even the kids love it… and I love that I get to sneak in some good ingredients for them!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dessert Hummus

Ingredients for Dessert Hummus

The biggest difference between traditional hummus and dessert hummus is the lack of tahini. For this recipe you will need:

  • chickpeas
  • almond or coconut flour (see notes below for how to use all-purpose flour)
  • peanut butter
  • agave syrup, maple syrup or honey
  • salt
  • water
  • mini chocolate chips

Then, you will need whatever you want to dip in the hummus! I recommend apples, pretzels and graham crackers!

How to make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dessert Hummus

This recipe could not be any easier to make! Simply combine all of the ingredients in a food processor (except for the chocolate chips) and blend until super smooth… be sure to give a good stir here and there. Then, remove the blade from your food processor and stir in the chocolate chips.

Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to chill and then serve! We have enjoyed it with apples and pretzels so far but put it on whatever you want and try not to eat the whole bowl at one time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a food processor for this recipe?

If you don’t have a food processor a blender or bullet blender will work. The goal is to get it as smooth as possible.

Can I use all-purpose flour for this recipe?

ONLY if you cook it first. Simply put the raw flour on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 5 minutes. This will kill any bacterial that is in the raw flour. Let it cool and then add it to the food processor.

Is this a vegan dessert hummus?

To make sure this hummus is vegan use chocolate chips that are dairy free. Many brands now make allergy friendly chocolate chips! My favorite is the Enjoy Life brand.

How long will this hummus stay in the fridge?

This recipe should be good for about 5 days in the fridge… but good luck keeping it that long!

How do I make it look like the picture?

Put the finished hummus in a medium sized plastic bag, cut a corner off and pipe into a bowl in circles. Then top with extra chocolate chips! Perfect for a party.

Yum! Looks delicious!! Can I use regular flour instead of almond or coconut or will that change the flavor?

Hi Erin! Regular flour shouldn’t be eaten raw. If you want to use regular you can toast it in the oven for a few minutes or just skip it completely and you may not need the tablespoon of water. It will still be delicious!
