Homemade Peanut Butter Hummus

Homemade Peanut Butter Hummus

I discovered a couple years ago that I really like hummus.  I have always wanted to make it at home once I realized it was made with just a few simple ingredients.  The original recipe called for one ingredient we didn’t have in our pantry, tahini.  After searching a bit on the internet I learned that a good alternative is peanut butter.

Homemade Peanut Butter Hummus


  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 19-ounce can of garbonzo beans, half the liquid reserved
  • 4 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

Recipe Directions

In a blender, chop the garlic.  Pour the garbonzo beans into the blender, reserving about a tablespoon for the garnish.  Place the lemon juice, peanut butter, chopped garlic and salt into the blender.  Blend until creamy and well mixed.

We really enjoyed eating this Mediterranean treat!  We gave it a 4 out of 5 herbs.  Super easy to make and goes great with chips or quesadillas!

  1. We could live off of hummus in our house. Great idea to sub the tahini for peanut butter- does the hummus taste like PB at all?

  2. The hummus does taste like peanut butter but I don’t think it is overpowering. However, I could it all day long!

  3. This is so interesting. I literally read the title and was like, “Wait, what?!” My boyfriend loves hummus and peanut butter – can’t wait to try out this combo!
