Chocolate Hummus Recipe

Well dear readers, I am always on the look out for another delicious recipe to try and this one was a hit as an icing for my cupcakes and even better it was also a hit with the wee ones as a dip for their fruit slices! YAY for children eating fruit! 😀 

Chocolate Hummus:


1 can (14oz) of Chickpeas (drained)

1 cup of cocoa powder 

1/3 cup of honey

1/4 cup of coconut milk powder


1) Blend chickpeas in a blender or food processor until smooth (or as close to as you can get) 

2) Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again until thoroughly mixed.

3) Refrigerate until needed


The above recipe is my adaptation of the following:

Chocolate Transforms Chickpeas!

So dear readers I’m sitting here eating my second cupcake, knowing that I won’t be sick from it because it’s gluten free (it’s also dairy free) as I was making a tester batch of cupcakes for a friend’s upcoming handfasting that are both gluten free and dairy free, to ensure that some of the guests can still enjoy them as well. I topped them with a chocolate hummus instead of icing to continue the dairy free theme, and fresh cut strawberries. SO GOOD!!!

Let me tell you, these are without a doubt the BEST cupcakes I have ever had in my life, and trust me, I did NOT get this curvy from avoiding delicious baked goods 😉

While I’m posting a link to the recipe, please note that I did make a few changes for mine:
1) I used applesauce instead of oil
2) I forgot the water
3) I used soy milk instead of cow’s milk.

I started with the chocolate hummus recipe found at the bottom of that same page, but made changes, I added about 2tsp more cocoa powder as I like a really rich taste, I added a 1/4 cup of coconut milk powder, and I used pure cocoa powder (from before they add milk ingredients to it) instead of nut butter.
