  • 1 3/4 cups cooked white beans or chickpeas (canned or home cooked)
  • 3/4 cup nut butter of your choice
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp cocoa powder (use the code STEWARDSHIP for 10% off at that site!)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (Use the code kitchenstewardship for 15% off of your first purchase) (if using home cooked beans and/or salt-free nut butter)
  • 24 tbsp milk (dairy-free works!)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips, to taste (optional)

Optional Dippers: graham crackers, sliced apples, bananas, pretzels


  1. Combine all ingredients except milk and chocolate chips in a food processor and puree until very smooth (1-2 minutes, depending on how powerful your machine is), thinning with milk as necessary to reach desired consistency.
  2. Stir in chocolate chips and eat with a spoon, or serve with chopped fruit and graham crackers.


You can use any kind of nut butter (see post for notes) – we love peanut butter! If you use tahini, start with 1/4 cup and taste, adding more as needed for desired flavor and texture.
