Peanut Butter Hummus…

I have a secret to tell you….I am not a big fan of raw carrots. Whenever I eat them, I make a really bad sour face and scare little children away lol. I know they are good for me so I am determined to include them in my diet.

I went online and starting to look for recipes for hummus so that I can pair it with the carrots and after looking and looking…I came up with



Can of Chickpeas

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Salt to taste

2 tbsps of Creamy peanut butter

Lemon Juice to taste

tbsp or more of Minced Garlic

I didn’t take exact measurements but I promise you, it is really easy to make.

First I drained the can of chickpeas (poured liquid in cup to use later)

I then combined the Chickpeas and minced Garlic in a bowl


And made it nice it creamy…I used some of the reserved liquid from the can to help me smooth it out…


I then added peanut butter, salt, lemon juice (I used two lemons…I like it zesty), and EVOO


and mixed it all up together…


I chilled it in the fridge for a couple of hours and then enjoyed it with baby carrots…


It was deeeelish!!!! This would taste great with any veggie!
