Apple Spice Hummus [yields ~3c]
- 15oz can [1.5c] chickpeas
- 1 1/3c unsweetened applesauce
- 1T sunflower oil
- 1T honey
- 1/4c raw cashew butter
- 1t molasses
- 2-2.5t cinnamon
- 1/2t salt
- 1/8-1/4t nutmeg
- 1/16t clove
- Blend everything together in a food processor until smooth. [A mini food processor will work, but you may need to make it in 2-3 smaller batches.]
- Taste + adjust spices if desired.
*Raw cashew butter [unsalted/unroasted] yields the best flavor, but other nut butters will work. I recommend using them in their raw form, so the flavor is not too strong. You can easily make raw cashew butter at home in your food processor. Process 2c of cashews [for an 11c capacity processor], scraping the bowl when needed for about 8-12min, until cashews are buttery + smooth. Add 1/2-2T oil if needed to smooth out.
*You can sub apple instead of applesauce if desired. The texture will not be as smooth, but it’s still quite tasty. You will need about 2c of chopped apples.
