Carrot Cake Hummus Recipe

If you love carrot cake you’ll love this carrot cake dessert hummus. Chickpeas and carrot cake give an amazing flavour that’s perfect as a complete meal. Spread it on crackers, dip fruit in it or just enjoy this hummus with a spoon!

Raw carrot cake hummus is the best variety of dessert hummus there is, in my opinion. The sweet carrots and spices with walnuts just works so well. Suitable for gluten free, oil free, vegan and natural healthy diets.  A portion of this contains 2 of your 5 a day.

I usually add some raisins to my carrot cake creations like this hummus, but often get so much negative feedback that I left them out from this recipe. But really if you like raisins or vine fruit do add 2-4 tablespoons.

This carrot cake hummus tastes amazing with cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice and ginger that all work so well with the raw carrot and walnuts. If you don’t have walnuts then pecans work just as well.

ingredient to make carrot cake hummus are carrot, coconut cream, walnuts, nutmeg, allspice, turmeric, cinnamon, sesame seeds, vanilla and sweetener. The walnuts can be replaced with pumpkin seeds or peacan nuts

I like to add a pinch of turmeric to this carrot cake hummus to give a golden colour and add a bit more nutrition. You really don’t taste it unless you know it’s there. Always buy your spices in bulk as they work out 90% cheaper than those little supermarket jars.

a food processor is best to make carrot cake hummus as it's a large amount per a recipe and is too dry for a liquid blender

No water is added to the carrot cake hummus as two carrots give enough moisture to make a thick dip.

This hummus is perfect in the centre of oats in the morning. Or like all of my healthy sweet hummus recipes, it’s great just with a spoon!

The sweetener used in the sweet hummus recipe is agave nectar, just because it has a very mild colour. But you can use your favourite natural sweetener in this recipe.

If you want to make your own sweetener check out my recipe for date syrup. It’s the healthiest natural sweetener there is out there as it retains all of the fibre of the fruit so the natural sugars are absorbed slowly. Also it’s loaded with nutrition.

Some people might be put off by the idea of sweet hummus as they picture it tasting like garlic and lemon. However sweet hummus just uses the chickpeas and sesame from hummus and replaces all the other savoury items with sweet.

I love this carrot cake hummus as a late night snack when I want something sweet and fulfilling. I love it on my 3 ingredient buckwheat bread as the nutty texture works so well and makes a high protein and fibre snack.

1 thought on “Carrot Cake Hummus”

  1. I halved the recipe to also try the strawberry cheesecake hummus (also delicious!)
    For sweetener I used one large pitted date. Spices I used a scant 1/4 tsp, I didn’t have allspice so I substituted pumpkin pie spice. I used cashews instead of walnuts and a small tsp of tahini for the sesame seeds. DELICIOUS! I am excited to try the carrot cake balls next!
