This is delicious! Just enough added flavour – cinnamon, vanilla etc that you DO NOT taste beans at all!!! Great recipe!
Would this work with honey? I am spending way too much on groceries since going vegan, so I don’t want to buy maple syrup.
Please add this to the app. I’m thinking of rolling into a ball for cookie dough balls!
I’m looking forward to making this. It sounds delicious. I’ve made many of their receipts and they are all wonderful. My only critique is that they should be providing nutrition information for their recipes.
I came across this recipe just by chance and since I had a lot of cooked chickpeas in my fridge, and all of the other ingredients I gave it a try. It was really good! Even considering my food processor isn’t as powerful as I’d like, it’s a perfect chocolate cream replacement. Thanks for sharing!
Why not add tehina as with normal humus?
I’m not really a fan of adding beans, avocados, and things in with sweets, especially chocolate. I can tell the difference and I don’t have a strong sweet tooth. I use soft tofu instead of the chickpeas as the base. I also prefer agave syrup to maple syrup but that’s just personal taste.
I was blown away by how good this is. I like hummus but this takes the cake. I will keep a small jar in the fridge when I feel for something sweet and nutritious I’ll just take a spoon and be satiated. Thank you for another great recipe.
