Not only is it the perfect high protein lightened dessert but it is gluten free and vegan… add this to my recipe round up from earlier this week. So simple to make and is delicious. Wasn’t sure if I wanted to call this a hummus… to me it’s more like a cookie dough, or icing, or pudding. This “hummus” will work well with graham crackers for dipping, as an icing on a cake or cupcake, a spread on some pumpkin bread, a filling in a cookie sandwich, or just by itself as a pudding. Probably tricking some friends or family into eating this delicious dip/pudding/icing concoction… if you don’t tell them there are beans in it, they would never know. Not gonna lie, I totally ate this for dinner last. Sorry I’m not sorry. #everythinginmoderation Plus it’s almost the holiday season, I was filling festive and what better way to get into the holiday spirit then dessert for dinner!? Just kidding (but not really).
