Peanut Butter & Hummus Dessert

I haven’t tried this yet, price but will most certainly do. I saw this recipe on The Wannabe Chef and decided to give it a go with a little few tweaks.

Ingredients

  • 1/2-cup of canned or freshly cooked Chickpeas
  • 2 tablespoons of All-Natural Smooth or Chunky Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar-free Vanilla Syrup from Caribou Coffee
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1-4 packets of Stevia (depending on how sweet you’d like your dessert to be)

Instructions

  1. Peel, page wash and rinse Chickpeas in cold water to minimize any added salts.
  2. In a food processor, combine all ingredients until they completely emulsify.
  3. You may consume immediately OR chill an hour or two for a colder dessert (I prefer chilling).

Added Ingredients

Why stop at Peanut Butter? Feel free to exclude it and add unsweetened Cocoa Powder. The combinations are ENDLESS! Why not add the Cocoa powder to the recipe above for a healthy, high fiber, low carb (and sugar), and high protein Peanut Butter and Chocolate dessert?

Using Chickpeas as a base instead of flour or grains yields so many benefits, including:

  • Gluten-free
  • Dairy-free
  • Vegan & Vegetarian-friendly
  • High Protein
  • High Fiber
  • Low Fat

This Thursday, I’ll be using the recipe above in addition to a few scoops of Vanilla flavored Whey protein to meet my protein requirements. Will post pictures and tell you guys how it goes.

    Nice post!

    I have to ask from where do you get your vanilla extract. All the ones that I’ve found have sugar as the first ingredient. Is there one where sugar is not an ingredient just pure vanilla extract?

    DM: I tried it today and absolutely LOVED IT! Didn’t taste even a hint of Hummus! Make sure you peel the Chickpeas thoroughly and wash them down with cold water.
    With regards to the Vanilla Extract, you can find it at The Sultan Center. I advise using sugar-free Vanilla or Caramel Syrup from Caribou too.

    Thanks for the great post Fahad. I would like to ask, where do you get the all-natural peanut butter? I went to 4 branches of Sultan Center and they have none. Hawalli branch used to have natural peanut butter, but not anymore.

    Maxim: I buy Stonewall Kitchen’s Chunky PB from TSC, but they sell out quickly. Another option would be Natureland PB.

  6. Maxim Says:

    Thanks Fahad. Which TSC do you buy it from exactly? Because the only natural PB I found is Smucker’s Natural PB with Honey.

  7. FAHAD Says:

    Maxim: I buy Stonewall Kitchen’s Chunk Peanut Butter, and TSC sold out. Your other option is Natureland Peanut Butter. Smucker’s Natural PB with Honey is good, but it contains added sugar in the form of Honey.
