Sweet Hummus

Okay, I admit it.  When I get excited about something I tend to go a bit over board.  "What is my excitement now?" You ask?  HUMMUS!!  I posted my recipe for spicy hummus the other day.  So, how about a sweet one?  This hummus is a great basic hummus on it's own and FANTASTIC served with fruit on it.  Are you ready?  Take a look.

Sweet Hummus

1 15 oz can (1 3/4 cups) of garbanzo beans
1/3 cup almond butter
1/4-1/3 cup maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar (I use maple syrup)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp - 1/4 cup water

Rinse and drain your garbanzo beans.
In a food processor fitted with a blade, add the rinsed and drained garbanzo beans, almond butter, maple syrup (or sweetener of choice), vanilla and cinnamon.

Process until smooth.  Scrape down the sides to make sure all your ingredients have been incorporated. Also, you can add some water (1 Tbsp if you used 1/3 cup sweetener to 1/4 cup if you used 1/4 cup sweetener) to make it a better dipping consistency (if you only used 1/4 cup of syrup your hummus will be similar to cookie dough)

That's all!  I like mine served with fresh fruit.  I also like it with berry salsa and
lo-cal pita chips

I hope you enjoy this.  Oh, and my hummus adventures are not over!
