Chocolate Hummus!

Now I've seen this stuff in the store but have always avoided it for a couple reasons. 1. It's usually LOADED with sugar of some kind. 2. I was afraid I'd devour it super quickly. I found a pumpkin pie hummus once and just kept eating it by the spoonful. It was gone in just 2 days and it was from COSTCO! Oops! hahaha Needless to say, I've been avoid those dessert hummuses. That is until I ran out of my PB Fit. See my afternoon snack is usually PB Fit on rice cakes and maybe sprinkled with cocoa nibs or something. So delicious! When I ran out, I needed something to top my rice cake with that was on the sweeter side but not overkill AND still nutritious. I flipped through some old recipes and ran into the Chocolate Hummus recipe I avoided when I first received it. Ingredients looked great and even better the macros were nice too! Win! So I went for it and boy am I glad I did. It's so amazing and PERFECT on rice cakes. The walnuts added some wonderful texture but you could totally go without or perhaps with something else like fresh strawberries! (Drooling!) BEST SNACK EVER!!!
