Cookie Dough Hummus (Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip)...Dipping a Toe in the Vegan Water

Inspired by our recent TV viewing featuring a vegan lifestyle, we wanted to try to incorporate more healthy alternatives in our snacking repertoire.  This is my first attempt at making a sweet hummus.  I browsed online, looking for something we might like.  Other recipes I found had added sugars or whole-fat peanut butter.  I wanted my first exposure to limit the sugars and extra fat, so I subbed in stevia and peanut powder (PB2, specifically). Honestly?  I think a little brown sugar would have made this PERFECT, but this recipe is pretty darn good for a snack with so much nutrition!  Try it; see what YOU think!
