Peanut Buttery Hummus (No Tahini)

 

Planning on whipping up some hummus but don’t have any tahini on hand? Let peanut butter come to your rescue!

 

This recipe can also be made raw for raw food eaters. Just soak the chickpeas over night and sprout for 2 days.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (19 ounces) chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained or home made.
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter (preferably unsweetened, but conventional is fine too)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 2 tablespoons juice from 1 lemon
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup of chopped peanuts (optional, for serving)
  • Pinch of smoked, hot paprika (optional, for serving)

Procedures

  1. 1

    Place the chickpeas, garlic, peanut butter, and lemon juice in a food processor and process until smooth. Slowly drizzle in olive oil with processor running. If necessary, add water by the tablespoon in between pulses until the desired texture is reached. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl and sprinkle the chopped peanuts and then the paprika on top, if desired. Drizzle with additional olive oil if desired. Serve with warm flatbread and vegetables.

In a Large bowl mix Oats with all dry ingredients;  Sea salt, cinnamon, Flax seed, Almonds, Pecans, Prunes, Figs and Sesame seeds.

Mix well with a large spoon till well blended.

In a glass or clay bowl add the Honey, Vanilla, Molasses, Agave and Maple syrup and warm 1/2 minute in microwave oven. Mix well with a spoon and pour over the Oats mixture.

Continue mixing for 2-3 minutes as the sticky mix has to incorporate with all the Oats.
