Chocolate-chip cookie dough hummus
Here’s a quick and easy dessert for you busy moms!
I’m a fan of this hummus for 3 main reasons, aside from it being tasty:
- Max 10 minutes to make it, start to finish (if you choose to toast the oatmeal)
- Lots of nutritious goodness from the chickpeas, oatmeal, and peanut butter
- Keeps well several days in the fridge
We enjoy eating this chocolate-chip cookie dough hummus for dessert with apples, pretzels, or just straight from a spoon. Yum. Count mom in too 🙂
This is a great one for getting kids into the kitchen with you as well. Easy pouring, measuring, and instant gratification for a happy helper! Score. (Oh, and your patience only has to last 10 minutes…any takers?)
Getting kids helping in the kitchen is one of the easiest ways to get kids trying new foods without the fuss as well.
The recipe calls for toasted oats. If you have the time to toast them, I highly recommend it because it adds some awesome flavour. It’s not strictly required though. I’ve made *scramble* batches too where I didn’t have time to toast the oats and they were fine too.
Picnics, play dates, or a friend’s get-together can all benefit from a batch of chocolate-chip cookie dough hummus for dessert 🙂 Let me know how you enjoy it!
