Dessert hummus is so hot right now, and switching up the beans for different nutritional content and colour, makes total sense for a chocolate hummus. I figured that if black beans can be used to make brownies, then switching them in place the chick peas for a hummus is not that big a stretch. Drizzle on some sugar-free chocolate or caramel sauce and sprinkle on some nuts, sea salt, or cacao nibs, and you've got a beautiful dessert that helps you up your bean game for on a carb-up.

- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
- ⅛ teaspoon Turkish coffee powder (*May sub espresso powder.)
