How to Make Homemade Hummus

THIS is one of my favorite snacks: easy, healthy homemade hummus!

Store bought hummus is loaded with fat from olive oil and tahini. While you do need some healthy fat in your diet it’s easy to eat too much.

This recipe doesn’t add any extra fats so your waistline won’t suffer!

          Tahini is a fat but it’s a good fat (just like avocado.) But since fats are loaded with calories gram for gram as compared to carbs or protein, it’s really easy to overdo fats. So there’s nothing wrong with healthy fats…we just have to make sure we’re not eating too much 😉 Great question!

    We love hummus at our house! I prefer ours with tahini-it tastes better (imo) and has a smoother consistency. Thanks for pointing out the need for fat moderation-we likely overdo it with as much hummus as we eat! I also love changing up the flavors-roasted red pepper, sriracha (my fave-not so much with the kiddos), pesto, salsa, kalamata olives (sort of a tapenade/hummus blend). If you’re not vegan, try adding plain yogurt, turmeric and curry powder for an Indian flavor twist-easy and delicious way to increase turmeric and fantastic with warm, garlic naan!
