Almond butter hummus is a great, tahini-free alternative to hummus made with peanuts. Almond butter is a sweet, nutty, complimentary flavor to this classic appetizer.

Ingredients

  • 1 can of chickpeas, 16 oz, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup almond butter, plus one tablespoon
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor and blend to a smooth, creamy consistency. If too thick, add 1 teaspoon of warm water or chickpea liquid at a time and blend until desired consistency.

  2. Serve almond butter hummus with pita bread, crackers, or fresh vegetables like carrots and celery.
