Peanut Butter Hummus by Eat Nourish Love

 This amazing Peanut Butter Hummus recipe idea and the beautiful photos are courtesy of Ayten from @eatnourishlove. I think that it’s perfect for Healthy & Psyched PEANUT BUTTER WEEK 2017 (a.k.a. The week every year when I post about peanut butter every day!)

Peanut butter hummus recipe - vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar free

I’m currently sat here drooling over the photos of the peanut butter hummus and feeling thankful that she created this recipe. I have always been terrible at making hummus – I’m not sure if it’s because I am using the wrong food processor or because I don’t use enough oil- but it never wants to blend together properly. Also, I recently had to stop eating chickpeas because I seem to react badly to them – so there is no hummus on the horizon for me any time soon.

If, unlike me, you can eat chickpeas, then try this delicious looking recipe!! I love that Ayten has added a small amount of date syrup for sweetness and then suggested adding in savoury pepper. I bet it tastes amazing. If I was making it, I think I would be tempted to add cinnamon into the mix as well.

Peanut Butter Hummus Recipe

Takes 5 minutes!


  • 1 400g can of chickpeas
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp date syrup
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 heaped tbsp smooth Pic’s peanut butter
  • optional-  salt, pepper and any other seasonings you would like to get creative with


  1. Empty the chickpeas into a bowl and microwave for one minute so they soften then drain them.
  2. Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and blend for 2 minutes.
  3. Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to one week.

It will look very creamy but once it has been left in the fridge for a few hours it will thicken up.

    I absolutely love hummus (sorry you don’t get on with it!) so this is right up my street, it sounds AMAZING! Yum.

    Ooh I love the idea of this! My kids go crazy for peanut butter but if I could get some hidden chickpeas down them too that would be even better!

    I’m not a massive fan of peanut butter but this does look delicious! I like hummus a bit spicy!

    I loooooovvvveeee houmous (in fact I eat it everyday), but I don’t like peanut butter so I can’t imagine this combination! It’s definitely a creative recipe though as they’re two tastes I would never put together!

    I have never though about combining the two before. Sounds so interesting, I’m going to have to try it now as it sounds like it could be delicious! My nanny children would also like it I bet!

    I love hummus. Adding peanut butter to the recipe is such a unique twist. I will try it definitely

    OMG YUM. I love peanut butter! This is such a creative recipe, I might have to give it a go!
