I love desserts that taste decadent but are actually healthy. I especially love foods that are fun!
This recipe is the normally savory hummus made sweet. Please do not think that chickpeas won't go well with sweet things because they do! I have been wanting to make a cookie dough hummus for a long time and I wish that I had done this sooner. It tastes so good!
Best of all this dessert hummus has everything in it! I don't know about you but I'm crazy about adding multiple ingredients into dishes. I think it makes it tastier. Plus what could be easier than just throwing in a little something extra to a recipe?
|In the food processor with everything!|
You can have it with pieces of fruit, use it as a spread, or just eat it with a spoon. Make it now!
