This isn’t the first time that I’ve featured hummus on my site, because hummus is just the best! For all you vegans out there, you know that hummus is basically a vegan food group – so the more types of hummus I can create the better!
Now, with the holidays coming up I felt as though I needed to adjust my hummus offerings to fit the season so I created a hummus dip that will go great at any holiday party!
By taking this vegan staple and adding in a bit of cinnamon, sweetness, and holiday cheer (okay that last one isn’t TECHNICALLY in there) I created a perfect sweet cinnamon hummus that is sure to be a real crowd pleaser! Now I do try to avoid sugar, but this recipe does call for a less processed sugar and some medjool dates for sweetness. So even though it’s got a tad bit of sugar in there, you can still enjoy without the guilt!
Serve this sweet cinnamon hummus with some apples and pretzels and everyone will love your for it! Oh and be sure to chill before you serve too, it enhances the flavors and taste – after an hour in the fridge it takes on a different and delicious flavor!
Free Tip: it’s going to take a bit of blending and elbow grease, but in total you can get this whole snack done in just 10 minutes – and it will be the most rewarding 10 minutes of your holiday season!
- 1 Can Chickpeas, Rinsed and Drained
- 1 Lemon, Juiced
- ½ Cup Water
- 1 Tbsp Tahini
- 6-8 Pitted Medjool Dates
- 1 Tbsp Coconut or Date Sugar
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. You may want to add a little more water if you want a thinner consistency,
- Place the hummus into a container and chill until cold, at least 1 hour.
- Serve with apples and pretzels.
If you don't have medjool dates you can use ⅓ cup of raisins, it'll taste a bit different but still delicious!
If you trust me and you double up the batch, making it in a blender is a bit easier.
