Peanut butter hummus is a kids' favorite. High in protein, peanut butter hummus is great for dipping veggies. This recipe is great for picky eaters who don't eat a lot of meats.

Peanut butter hummus isn't just for kids. I know of quite a few adults who love peanut butter hummus, myself included.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 can chickpeas (15-19 oz)
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


In a food processor, combine all ingredients and blend to a dip consistency. If it is too thick, add more warm water 1 tablespoon at a time.

Serve peanut butter hummus immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Serve with fresh celery, carrots, and broccoli. Warm pita or french bread cubes also do well.

Peanut Butter Hummus, Member ceramagrama66

A common thread that I see in all of the reviews is that the hummus is runny. When I make humus, once a week, I do not use water or liquid from the chickpeas, rather I drop in 2 or 3 small ice cubes while the hummus is processing. Not only does this eliminate the problem of runny hummus, it gives it a very creamy texture.
