The benefits of making your own hummus
I love hummus, but I hate the often high-sodium and high-fat ingredients that come with store-bought brands. Making your own cake batter hummus is actually really simple. It’s vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and oil-free so it won’t leave you feeling bloated or with a stomach ache. You can also control what goes into it making it fit your dietary preferences. For example, you can play with the amount of maple syrup or switch up type of milk you use.
It’s not easy getting the kids to eat more whole plant based foods. So, it’s time for some creativity! This cake batter hummus will have them begging for more.
It took a while, but I eventually convinced them to buy store-bought hummus, and now I’m attempting to get them to eat home-made hummus.
The kids didn’t appreciate my first batch of home-made hummus (I’ll post the recipe soon).
I may have used too much garlic. Like a lot of garlic.
Have you ever eaten something extremely garlicy and then had to wear a face mask for the next three hours?
I don’t recommend it. 🙂

Cake Batter Hummus
- 1 can of chickpeas or 1 1/2 cup of cooked chickpeas
- 1/4 cup of flour. I used all-purpose this time but next time I'm going to try oat flour
- 2 tbsp of sugar. I used brown sugar, but you could use white sugar or cane sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1-2 tbsp of milk. I used almond milk
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp of salt
- sprinkles - optional
- Add all the ingredients, expect the milk, to a food processor or blender.
- Blend until the mixture is smooth. Add milk 1/2 tbsp at a time to create the desired thickness.
- If not serving right away, scoop batter into a container for storing in your fridge.
- Serve with pita bread, crackers or chips.
