It’s back! After I tried my last batch of dessert hummus, I was eager to make a new flavor. A lot of you pointed out that it looks(and tastes!) like cookie dough. Well, one of my favorite cookies is the classic snickerdoodle; I love the cinnamon sugar crunch on the outside. And since cinnamon, almonds, and chickpeas all share an earthy flavor, I had a feeling this would work out. And it did!
Snickerdoodle Dessert Hummus
- 2 cups of chickpeas, drained and washed
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- cinnamon sugar for garnish
Peel your chickpeas(recommended) and add them in a food processor with the almond butter, maple syrup, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
Process for about 30 seconds to a minute, until all the ingredients have mixed and the dip is smooth.
Move to a serving bowl and garnish with cinnamon sugar on top.
The obvious question is “How do you serve this?” Well, I would lay it out on a platter with
- graham crackers
- apple slice
- baby carrots
- cinnamon pita chips
- mini-chocolate bars
I have to admit that my favorite way to eat these are a spoon; that’s the benefit of cooking for yourself alone.
