Amazing Chocolate Dessert Hummus

So what's a girl to eat for dessert when trying to follow a whole food, sugar free, oil free, flour free diet? And she's a baker?!


The idea for ingredients came from this delicious fat free cookie recipe:
And thanks to Dr. Greger for his video on a harmless sugar substitute (that actually tastes good). 
I really want to like Stevia, but just can't get paste the bitter almost metallic taste.

I made this the other night and had to stop myself from eating the whole batch at once. I may play around and refine the recipe a bit but here's what I did.

Chocolate Hummus

1 1/2 cups chickpeas 
5 pitted prunes
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 T date paste (or use 3 dates and 1/4 cup warm water)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 T Z Sweet (or other sugar substitute)
splash of balsamic vinegar (optional)
1 T soy or coconut creamer

Process chickpeas and prunes in food processor. Add rest of ingredients and process til smooth. Add a bit more creamer as needed to get to the texture you prefer. I had this one night with a banana, then the strawberries, and also with a spoon. It would be great with cinnamon pita chips, or even those chocolate tortilla chips. Any other ideas?
