Peanut Butter Hummus Recipe is a lovely variation on regular hummus. Peanut butter is a no go ingredient for some, but not for us! Adding it to hummus is a super fun way to make a hummus variation. It’s so creamy and thick that you can forget about using tahini with this recipe, instead use peanut butter as the main ingredient to make this delicious dip.
You might be thinking, why should make peanut butter hummus when I can buy a sandwich spread with the same flavor in store? Peanut butter alone is yummy but when combined with hummus its texture, smell and taste is way good.
I’m sure you’ll be making this dip over and over again after giving it a try today.
