Why I Love Chocolate Hummus

Last week my son suddenly turned to me and asked, “Can I have chocolate hummus again?”

Last time I made a fuzzy savory dip, I shared it with whole grain crackers and a platter of cut fruit. My toddler was able to cover his entire face in chocolate goodness.

Not only was it delicious, but the healthy chocolate hummus was chock-full of super-nutritious ingredients like chickpeas, peanut butter, and antioxidant-rich cocoa powder.

“Yes!” I said to my son in response to his request. Absolutely, utterly yes. “Let’s make chocolate hummus again.”
