Hummus doesn’t have to be savoury.


Chocolate hummus is a delicious and healthy alternative to chocolate spread that’s full of protein.



1 tin of chickpeas

3 tablespoons of sugar free cocoa powder

1 tablespoon tahini

2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup or 2 chopped medjool dates

Cold water


You will need a blender or food processor to make this recipe.




  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  2. Put the chickpeas in your food processor or blender with 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder, a tablespoon of tahini and 2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup – or 2 chopped medjool dates.
  3. Process until smooth – this will take longer if you’re using dates. Scrape the sides of your processor down with a spatula and process again.
  4. Add 1-2 spoonfuls of cold water until you have the consistency that you like.

Use as a dip with fruit or spread onto rice cakes. Why not make rice cake faces with your children like our mini chefs have done?
