When I told my kids I was making cookie dough hummus they replied, “Really? That sounds disgusting!” So maybe we shouldn’t call it Cookie Dough Hummus but instead call it Cookie Dough Dip, because it turns out the kids loved it!
When you’re in the mood for something sweet and filling this is the dip to make for dessert or an afternoon treat by the pool!
Serve it with your favorite fruit or veggie slices. These are some of our favorites; apples, bananas, jicama, and celery.
Cookie Dough Hummus
4–6 whole medjool dates
1 can garbanzo beans
¼ cup unsweetened nut butter (I love using cashew butter)
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. sea salt
1/8 Baking Soda
2–4 Tbsp. raw honey
2 Tbsp. flax meal
2–4 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
¼ cup mini chocolate chips
Pit the dates and place in a small bowl. Add 1 cup of water and allow dates to soak while preparing other ingredients.
Drain and rinse garbanzo beans and place in a blender or food processor.
Add in the nut butter, vanilla, sea salt, baking soda, raw honey, flax meal and soaked dates.
Blend together and slowly add in almond milk until desired consistency is reached.
Place hummus in a serving bowl and stir in the chocolate chips.
I like to use Enjoy Life brand mini chocolate chips in this recipe. You can find them at your local Whole Foods, on Amazon or maybe in the health food section in your neighborhood grocery store.
