Rich and creamy Dark Chocolate Hummus is the perfect healthy treat! It requires just 5 everyday ingredients and can be made in 10 minutes. Naturally vegan and gluten free!
It is a strange world that we live in.
A place where chocolate + cooked beans + maple syrup + olive oil, wizzed up in the food processor until not a single ingredient is recognizable somehow turns into something edible. And not just edible, but good, delicious, crave-able, and amazing.
It defies all the laws of good cooking and turns into one of the most delicious decadent chocolate-y things ever eaten.
In addition to blowing away the laws of taste, this dip also defies the laws of health. It is smooth, rich, deeply chocolate-y, and yet so healthy!
We use just five healthy whole-food ingredients to make this luscious spread. It is full of fiber from the beans, antioxidants from the cacao powder, and is naturally sweetened with maple syrup.
