Peanut Butter Hummus

Serves 6.

Peanut Butter Hummus

After-school snacks offer an opportunity to add important nutrients to a child’s diet and also to curb appetites until the dinner bell rings. Peanut butter anoints hummus with a kid-approved flavour profile (and some extra protein) making this healthy dip something that little legs will run home for. Possible dippers include apple wedges, baby carrots, sliced red pepper, celery, and baked tortilla chips. It can also be spread on brown rice cakes.

Kids in action

Allow your under-aged helpers to place all of the ingredients in a food processor container and then, when secured, hit the go button.


Soaking and simmering chickpeas with some baking soda encourages the legumes to break down during cooking, making for a creamier dip.
