Ingredient notes and substitutions

The complete list of ingredients to make this snickerdoodle dessert hummus recipe is above. Below are notes about some of the ingredients, along with ideas for substitutes.

Almond butter – Traditional hummus is usually made with tahini which has a strong taste for sweet hummus. If you don’t have almond butter, cashew butter or sun butter are good options. I don’t recommend peanut butter because the peanut flavor is strong.

Maple Syrup – Look for real maple syrup and not pancake syrup which is made with corn syrup. You can also use an equal amount of honey or brown rice syrup.

Almond milk – This compliments the almond butter and can be substituted with cashew milk, coconut milk, or oat milk.

How to store snickerdoodle hummus

What to serve with dessert hummus

Recipe variations

Pumpkin snickerdoodle hummus – stir in 1/4 to 1/2 cup to taste of pupkin puree before adding the milk.

Snickerdoodle chocolate hummus – stir in a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder and a little more syrup to taste for a chocolate treat


  • Adjust the consistency of your hummus by adding more milk if it’s too thick. If it’s to thin, add more chickpeas or almond butter.
  • If you have time, boil the canned chickpeas before adding them to the food processor for about 15 minutes for an extra creamy hummus.

Can you freeze hummus?

You can freeze hummus for up to three months in a freezer-safe container. Thaw out hummus in the refrigerator overnight. Please note that the flavor and texture may be compromised.

  1. This recipe is amazing! Very simple. The only swap was date paste for the maple syrup. Used a one to one swap. It is in the refrigerator. Can’t wait to try it out on toast, topped with bananas.
