Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Hummus

When you make cookie dough, maybe you're like me and have to snitch just a little bit more dough...10 more times!  My kids love cookie dough too, maybe even more than cookies.  So I was really excited to find this recipe from The Wannabe Chef.  It's a healthy alternative to cookie dough, minus eggs.

Since my new Cuisinart 7-cup food processor just came in the mail today I had to try something fun and new.  This definitely was both of those.  It looks like cookie dough and is about 90% as tasty.  Perfect for apple dipping...or finger dipping.

So I know this still has sugar in it - in the form of syrup, but play around with amounts.  I'm excited to try Peanut Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.  Also, you could play with the different add-ins.  I did mini semi sweet chocolate chips.  I'm personally a fan of milk chocolate.  You could add cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and some pureed pumpkin (with chocolate chips) for a fall variant.  Definitely worth experimenting on!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Hummus
from The Wannabe Chef

2 cups chick peas (about 1 can, drained and rinsed)
1/4 cup natural (no sugar added) peanut butter
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp syrup (I added less...start with a smaller amount and add gradually to taste)
1/2 Tbsp vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Using your food processor, puree the chick peas, peanut butter, syrup, and vanilla.  Process until smooth.  Stir in chocolate chips and serve.

*Mine is in the fridge right now.  I'm excited to taste it cold, I think it will taste even better.  I'm thinking it would even be a good topping for my whole wheat pancakes (that are oil free and egg free).
