  1. In a blender or in a food processor, combine all the ingredients except water, using just 3 ½ Tbsp of maple syrup.
  2. Puree until the mixture is smooth, about 30-60 seconds. Add water 1 Tbsp at a time to create the desired consistency. Taste the chocolate hummus and add the remaining maple syrup if desired.


  • I’ve tested this recipe with great northern beans, garbanzo beans, and black beans. I prefer to use black beans since the “bean” flavor is more subtle and they produce a creamier texture, but you can really use whatever you happen to have.
  • If you use canned beans and there’s salt already added, reduce the salt in this recipe to just a pinch.
  • If you choose garbanzo beans, remove the skin from the bean first. You can do this by pinching the bean between your thumb and index finger, and the skin will peel off. This helps to create a creamier texture.
