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!


Pin It!


  1. You & your!!!!! Sounds good. :)

  2. I've actually found that organic carrots taste SUBSTANTIALLY better than non-organic. There's a farmer's market at Atlas on Saturdays that might have some!

    Love this hummus. You know how close PB and I are!

  3. if you are ever in the mood for some regular hummus, i have a HUGE jar of tahini paste sitting in my cabinet waiting to be used one tablespoon at a time. :-)

  4. Mmmmm, sounds SO good!!!

  5. That sounds great! I tried making hummus once and failed!!

  6. Sounds amazing!! It's very similar to the dessert hummus that Evan blogged about a while ago, and that I finally made a couple months ago (it included chocolate chips too!). Sounds like the perfect snack (two veggies in one!)

  7. OMG this sounds like an amazing recipe. Bookmarking it now!

  8. OK, I admit, I cringed at the title of this post. But upon further reflection, that recipe is just like a peanut dipping sauce, and that sounds awesome! I approve. :)

  9. Welcome back peanut butter, how could I forget peanut butter. :)

    Sounds a lovely combination though, would love it with warmed flat bread :) :)

    That Joanne is a bad influence on you, you weren't into running and fresh veggies, when I first came here. lol.

  10. I love this. I think I'm going to steal your recipe!

  11. I'm totally fascinated by this.
