Winni Recipes | Air Fryer Fried Pickles


· ¼ cup maple syrup

· ¼ cup cocoa powder

· ¼ cup natural peanut butter or other nut butter

· 1/3 cup almond milk or dairy milk – add more as needed

· 2 teaspoons espresso powder

· ½ teaspoon cinnamon

· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

· ¼ cup mini chocolate chips

· Pinch of salt

· 19 oz. chickpeas, drained and rinsed


1. Combine - In the base of a 7 cup food processor fitted with a steel blade, combine all ingredients except for the chickpeas.

2. Blend - Blend for 1 minute, scraping down the sides of the food processor halfway through, until mixture is smooth and bubbly.

3. Add chickpeas - Add the chickpeas and process for 2-3 more minutes, scraping sides down and adding more milk as needed.

4. Serve - with fresh fruit, cookies, rice cakes, toast, or pretzels.



· Dessert hummus can be kept in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.


· If you do not have a food processor, a high-speed blender like a Vitamix may work. Cheaper blender models won't be able to blend this hummus.

Ingredient swaps:

· peanut butter may be swapped for almond butter or Sun Butter

· almond milk may be swapped for your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk

Smoother hummus:

· If you are looking for the smoothest hummus possible, consider taking the following extra steps:

1. Overcook your chickpeas (if cooking from scratch).

2. Peeling your chickpeas- squeeze the skin off using your thumb and forefinger.
