Healthy S'mores Dip with Brownie Batter Hummus and Toasted Marshmallows

If you’re a s’mores fan (and who isn’t) you’re going to L-O-V-E this quick and easy s’mores dip because it tastes just like the treat you adore… only there’s no campfire necessary and this dip is actually kinda healthy. I say kinda because there are marshmallows involved, but this dip is much healthier than most s’mores dips out there.

The base is a brownie batter hummus dip that’s made with chickpeas, coconut sugar, maple syrup, cocoa powder, almond milk, vanilla and sea salt. 7-ingredients! That’s it and it’s sooo good.

Here’s What You Need

  • chickpeas – the base of the brownie batter hummus! It sounds strange but I promise you won’t be able to taste the beans!
  • coconut sugar – I love using coconut sugar because it’s a natural sugar with a bit more nutrition, but regular cane sugar works as well.
  • maple syrup – make sure you grab pure maple syrup, not the artificial stuff.
  • cocoa powder – this is where the chocolate flavor comes in!
  • almond milk – I like using unsweetened almond milk but any dairy-free milk will work.
  • vanilla extract – the perfect flavor enhancer.
  • sea salt – brings all of the flavors together!
  • mini marshmallows – make sure you buy vegan and gluten-free marshmallows if needed.
  • graham crackers and strawberries – for serving.

2 Delicious Layers

The base layer of this dip is a delicious chocolate brownie batter hummus. I like to eat it on it’s own, straight from the food processor with berries or graham crackers! Pair this base layer with marshmallows to take this dip to a whole new level!

The brownie batter hummus is vegan and gluten-free. To make the entire dip fit your dietary needs, just make sure you grab vegan and gluten-free marshmallows and graham crackers.

How to Serve S’mores Dip

I like eating this dip with graham crackers or strawberries but feel free to get creative and serve it with a variety of options! Here are some ideas:

  • crackers – call me crazy but I think sea salt crackers would be a delicious salty pairing for this sweet dip! I like Simple Mills crackers or you can make your own!
  • berries – any berry would be delicious dipped in this dip. Obviously strawberries seem to be the easiest thanks to their size but feel free to try different berries!
  • apples – apple slices are the perfect vehicle to transport this dip into your mouth!
  • cherries – fresh cherries dipped in chocolate? You can’t go wrong!
  • pretzels – another salty option to satisfy your salty-sweet cravings!

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

While this dip doesn’t keep super long, you can store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to two days. To reheat, place the baking dish in an oven preheated to 350ºF for about 5 minutes. The purpose is simply to melt the marshmallows a bit so they become gooey again!

      Would dry cooked chickpeas work just as good as the canned ones?

      Can you use cacao powder or does it have to be cocoa powder? What brand did you use?

        I’ve made this a ton so I’ve used different brands and both cocoa powder and cacao powder. I most recently used Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder and it turned out to be delicious. Whatever you have on hand should work great!

      If I wanted to omit the coconut/cane sugar, approximately how much maple syrup would I need to substitute it with? Thanks!

        I’d do about 5 Tablespoons of maple syrup! You can taste it to see if it’s sweet enough and add more if needed. Let me know how it turns out. 🙂

      How big is the serving size? I know it says 1/8 but I’m not sure what that equates to / how much the entire recipe yields… thanks!!
