Peanut Butter Hummus

Peanut_Butter_Hummus I love this as a snack, I find it more filling than most snacks and it lasts longer too. I wanted something that was packed full of filling power and very low calorie, so when I found a tin of chickpeas in the cupboard it was a no-brainer for me – a perfect accompaniment for Ryvitas or my beloved Lo-Dough

I always have lemon and lime juice in my staples cupboard and I also used some smoked paprika that I picked up from the airport in Malaga last year. Not quite out of date thankfully although I will use spices past their date as long as the colour and aroma is still there!For

The other main ingredient in this recipe is PB2 Peanut Butter Powder . It can be found in some supermarkets such as Morrison’s and I believe some have found it in Lidl or Aldi. I bought mine from Amazon – basically it has the fat taken out but the taste is still there. You can use any peanut butter but obviously the nutritional and syn value will vary.
