Cinnamon Raisin Dessert Hummus

21 Feb

Here is my dessert hummus that I have been eating by the gallon lately. It makes my raw veggies taste like candy. Enjoy!


*Inspired by Evan and Heather’s lovely ideas. 🙂


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 2 tbsp cashew butter (or other nut butter)
  • almond milk (about 1/4 cup, just add a bit at a time until desired consistency)
  • dash of sea salt
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • stevia, maple syrup, or other sweetener of choice (I used 10 drops of vanilla stevia)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp raisins


Place all ingredients, except for raisins, in a food processor. Blend away, scraping down the sides as you go. Take out blade and mix in raisins and additional cinnamon for more flavor.

      It add a nice texture more than anything so could definitely be left out. But I like it in everything!

    Sounds awesome!! I have to be careful when I make dessert hummus. I finish the thing off in two days I swear…but hey at least it gets me eating more fruit right? 😉

    Dessert hummus sounds amazing! I love the cinnamon raisin combo – Do you still dip your veggies in it or do you go the fruit route?

      It is SO good with veggies. Like I said above, they seriously taste like candy! Well to me anyways. 😉
