Look what I ate for dinner! Chocolate!
Okay, so before you start saying, "Chocolate and beans?! Ewwwww!!", listen up. It's good. No it's better than good. It's decadent and HEALTHY. I used splenda to sweeten it so it kept the calories way down. Trust me, this was GOOOOOOOOOD.
The 9 year old who doesn't like ANYTHING I make, especially beans, loved it. I mean seriously loved it. I actually wish he hadn't loved it so much. Then I could have eaten more. (Yes, I'm a selfish mama.)
I also toasted up some homemade whole wheat tortillas sprinkled with cooking spray, sugar and cinnamon. Excellent treat with the hummus. Seriously, you gotta try this!
1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup splenda (or sugar)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
2 - 4 tbsp. warm water
Mix everything in a food processor. Add water as needed for consistency.
