This delicious Snickerdoodle Hummus Dip tastes just like the holiday cinnamon sugar cookie but it’s healthier! The surprise ingredient is chickpeas but don’t let that scare you away – no one will know (unless you tell them)!
Favorite Holiday Cookie in Hummus Form
Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies for Christmas. They are deliciously covered in cinnamon sugar and make the whole house smell like the holidays.
When I was telling a few people about my dip idea, they didn’t actually know what a snickerdoodle cookie was! I was so surprised! But even if you haven’t tried the cookie before, I think you’ll like my Snickerdoodle Hummus Dip version with all of its cinnamon goodness.
Healthy Holiday Dessert
While I love me some Christmas cookies I have been trying to think of a few healthy holiday recipes to share so we all can have a yummy treat without as much sugar (not that there’s anything wrong with some treats now and then).
I’ve seen chocolate chip cookie dip made with beans before and thought why not create a sweet hummus version of my beloved snickerdoodle cookies?
Snickerdoodle Hummus Ingredients
For this healthy dessert hummus I use only 4 ingredients:
- almond butter
- pure maple syrup
- vanilla extract
Let me tell you, no one trying this Snickerdoodle Dip will think it was made with beans unless you tell them. It has that sweet cinnamony goodness that you’d get from a cookie but with added protein & fiber!
What to Eat with the Snickerdoodle Dip
You can dunk whatever you like into this hummus (or even just eat it with a spoon!) but here are a few ideas for dipping:
- apple slices
- graham crackers
- pear slices
And what could be a better Christmas movie watching snack than Snickerdoodle Hummus and my Gingerbread Hot Chocolate?
