You guys!  This stuff is GOOD!  I wanted to just eat it with a spoon!  This brownie batter hummus would be great with fruit or graham crackers.  You can also spread it on toast, waffles or pancakes.

Or you can be like me and just eat it with a spoon!  This hummus is healthy and it also comes with a boost of protein and fiber.  It’s vegan, gluten free and grain free.   It can easily be made nut free as well.

This should last at least a week in the fridge. I bet you can also freeze it for longer. Enjoy!

  1. This sounded so strange I almost didn't open the email. But I'm glad I did. It looks pretty awesome. Great use of black beans instead of garbanzos. I usually use homemade almond butter in my hummus. On my "to try" list.
  2. When I saw my email, I thought what a weird idea! I'm glad I opened it. LOL I'll have to try it. A "hummus" without sesame, yay. We are sad to have severe allergy to sesame in our home now. Severe. Hey, have you ever bought a "hail merry tart?" They have several flavors and are fantastic!! This is something you could prolly copy cat with ease!! Then I could make them a lot cheaper! :) I get them at natural grocers. Whole foods have them too for quite a bit more. The lime tart and mint chocolate tart are my faves. HINT HINT.
    1. I have seen those and thought about creating a copycat version. Adding Hail Merry to the list! :) Starting with the mint chocolate tart.
    2. I made regular hummus the other day and accidentally forgot the tahini....everyone loved it! My kids couldn't get enough and normally they won't go near hummus!! Worth a try since you guys have an allergy!
    1. I think it could! Although it may be hard to spread after it's chilled. Just spread it after you make it and you should be good. :)
  3. I can't believe how good this is. Even my picky 2 year old is eating it. The only problem I ran into was blending all the beans.
  4. This is a winner. Absolutely delicious! The whole family loved it. We ate it on bananas tonight; I can't wait to try it with strawberries. :)
  5. Oh my goodness! I made this today and it is delicious! I used a bit of both maple syrup and coconut sugar. It has just the right sweetness. I spread it on some toasted Ezekiel bread and it was Sooo good!
  6. I was really skeptical about this, but oh my gosh, it's delicious!! I had it with fresh strawberries and I licked the plate clean :) I think this would also be awesome on top of toast, a brown rice cake, or oatmeal. Can't wait to try all the ways! Thanks for a delicious and simple recipe.
  7. Would you happen to know the carb count for this? I am a new diabetic and the coconut sugar is almost as bad for me as pure sugar. Could I use Swerve or Stevia? Thanks.
  8. Made this with a few subs (didn't have enough coconut sugar so used some honey as well; ditto with almond butter which I partially subbed with tahini). It is soooooooo good! Thank for you the recipe, will be making this again and again. I can just imagine how good it would be on toast, spooned onto porridge for breakfast, as dip for fruit, as icing on cake, etc.
  9. Could someone please translate the 1/2 cup Measurements to grams for the nut butter and the sugar? Would it be same Amount of maple syrup if replacing sugar?
