Steps

  1. To make the basic sweet hummus, blitz the chickpeas in a food processor until broken down and nearly smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and blitz again until completely smooth - this may take up to 5 minutes.
  2. Split the mixture into 3.
  3. Brownie Batter: add the basic hummus portion back into the food processor along with the vanilla paste, cocoa powder and maple syrup. Blitz for a further two minutes.
  4. Serve sprinkled with the shaved white and dark chocolate.
  5. Peanut Butter Hummus: add the basic hummus portion to a blender and add the peanut butter, icing sugar and cinnamon. Blitz for a further two minutes. Add the 1 tbsp of salted peanuts and pulse a few times to incorporate, but still leave some texture.
  6. Serve sprinkled with the chopped salted peanuts and shaved chocolate.
  7. Strawberry Cheesecake Hummus: add the basic hummus portion to a blender and add the cream cheese, icing sugar, 1 strawberry and lemon zest and blitz for 2 minutes.
  8. Serve garnished with the chopped strawberry and crumbled biscuits.
