I was skeptical too
Believe me when I say, I was very hesitant to try dessert hummus. Don’t get me wrong, I love trying new health foods! But, dessert hummus?! That just sounded wrong to me. One day, I finally gave in and purchased the brownie batter dessert hummus from my local Aldi. I am SO GLAD I took the plunge and gave it a whirl. IT WAS SO GOOD!
As a result of my yummy experience with the brownie batter flavor, I ventured into trying more flavors like, chocolate mint and sugar cookie! The sugar cookie has by far been my favorite, so I decided to try and make my own at home!
So, for all you skeptical souls too afraid to try dessert hummus, I’m here to tell you that I was too. And that it’s worth trying because chances are you will LOVE it!

What does this Healthy Dessert Hummus Taste like?
This sugar cookie dessert humus is thick, spreadable, dippable, and mixable! It has a smooth texture exactly like regular hummus. It’s sweet and tastes like a traditional sugar cookie because of the almond extract used in it. You definitely can’t tell there are chickpeas in this dessert hummus! I made sure of it when creating the recipe. No one likes to think they are getting a scoop of sugar cookie and then taste chickpeas instead…yucky.
I do want to be completely honest about this dessert hummus. It is NOT a low calorie snack or dessert. Although it contains all clean ingredients and no preservatives, it’s still pretty high in calories because of the sugar content. I mean… it’s sugar cookie hummus so we had to use enough coconut sugar to make it taste like a cookie!
Granted, it’s coconut sugar which is amazing for you! You can learn more about it’s benefits and how it’s a low glycemic sweetener in my, 6 Low Cost Superfoods post. So, even though it’s not the lowest calorie snack, it will satisfy that sweet tooth, satiate your tummy and leave you feeling great! Which is not the case for most processed snacks and desserts.
