Peanut butter hummusHummus plays a big part in my diet. On toast, with carrots, cucumbers or celery, smudged on a  rice cake, almond crackers, or just on its own with a big spoon straight in the mouth.  You really can’t go wrong with hummus. Now imagine what happens when you create a peanut butter hummus! Anyone who knows me, knows that I love peanut butter, so a combination of those two flavours creates snacking heaven. Chick peas, also known as a garbanzo bean is a healthy addition to any diet. It is a great source of protein and fiber, but also contains several key vitamins and minerals known to contribute towards weight loss. Keep it in a jar and it will stay well in the fridge for 3-4 days. Kids also really like this and it makes a great packed lunch option.

  • Juice from 1/2 lemon

  1. Drain the chickpeas and throw into the food processor.
  2. Add the peanut butter, almond milk, crushed garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  3. Start pulsing and slowly add the olive oil as you go along.
  4. Taste for seasoning and you can add more salt and pepper if you like.
  5. The hummus is ready when everything is mixed well and you have achieved a smooth texture. Sprinkle with paprika and a drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy!
