Chocolate-chip cookie dough hummus

Mid-afternoon. “Mom, what can we have for snack?”

“How about one of those chocolate-cherry muffins?”

“All gone!”

“Ok- you could have some fruit!”

“Apples are boring and the bananas are still green!”

Apples = boring today. Bananas are green. Muffins are all gone. What can I make that won’t take half an hour to mix, bake, and dirty a whole bunch of dishes…?

If you’re like me, you’re always on the lookout for quick and easy snack ideas. If that idea happens to use an entire can of chickpeas and can bring cheers from 3/3 boys eating it, all the better!

I’m a fan of this hummus for 3 main reasons, aside from it being tasty:

  1. Max 10 minutes to make it, start to finish (if you choose to toast the oatmeal)
  2. Lots of nutritious goodness from the chickpeas, oatmeal, and peanut butter
  3. Keeps well several days in the fridge

We enjoy eating this chocolate-chip cookie dough hummus as dip for apples, pretzels, or just as a little side treat on a spoon with lunch. Yum. Count mom in!

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…)

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 many *scramble* batches where I didn’t have time to toast the oats and they were eaten up without a peep of protest.

Picnics, play dates, or a friend’s get-together can all benefit from a batch of chocolate-chip cookie dough hummus 🙂 Let me know how you enjoy it!

    Can you tell me how many chickpeas to use in cups? I’m from the US and our cans are 15oz (425g). According to the recipe that’s either 67 cups (540oz) or .08cups (19ml). Something isn’t adding up. I would assume your cans are the same size as our cans and I would just use the whole can but I wanted to be sure

      Hi Shannon! Yikes! Yes, you are right! I mis-typed the oz/mL (switched them), so it should be 540 mL (19 fluid oz). Hopefully this makes a little more sense- I’ve updated the recipe now. Thank you for catching that 🙂

      I had a can in my pantry so just measured, and drained it comes to a tiny bit over 2 cups. I hope this helps!
