Chocolate Hummus Cheesecake Bars

I could literally talk for the next 3 days straight about my undying loyalty to hummus, but if you know me you know that by now. And if you don’t, just note that the previous statement is NOT a hyperbole. I love hummus so much that I decided to make dessert with it. Hear me out: chocolate hummus can make a FINE cheesecake sub. Like, veryyyyyy fine.

 

Chocolate Hummus Cheesecake Bars:

Crust:

1 bag @healinghomefoods peanut butter chocolate chip granola
1/3 cup coconut oil

Blend these until well combined and then press mixture firmly on the bottom of a brownie pan lined with parchment paper. Place in the freezer to harden. 

Filling:

1 can rinsed and drained chickpeas
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
sea salt
vanilla

Blend these ingredients together and spread on top of the crust. Place back in freezer for about an hour or until hardened. I placed these back in the fridge to soften a little before eating and store them there from that point forward!
