Not Your Average Hummus

Wow! That’s all I know to say right now! I was a little hesitant last night to click “publish” but I’m so so glad that I did! I just finished reading through all of your comments and I can’t thank you all enough for the huge amount of support I feel right now! I love you guys SO much!

I think for now, I’m just gonna go with the flow and see where it goes….if I feel like posting every day one week and only a few days the next, so be it! Just know that I have absolutely NO intention on quitting blogging for a LONG time! I love it too much!

I have actually been excited all day today to get to this post tonight! I have a little something for you guys…

I made PB&J!

Wait…was that a little anticlimactic? Oh, I’m sorry. Let me try this…


Are you still there? I promise it’s absolutely delicious! Remember the disclaimer people!

It all started when I got a craving for one of my childhood favorites for dinner. It is practically impossible for me to sink my teeth into a PB&J without thoughts of bike riding, hide-n-seek, and Saturday morning cartoons. And while I’m totally not against indulging in childhood comfort food, a simple PB&J never really “sticks to my ribs” as my mama would say (Hi, Mom!).

So, how do you make a sandwich that’s filling for a five-year old work for a more grown-up sized hunger? You add beans!

Black Bean PB&J Hummus

Cranberry Bean PB&J Hummus*

*Don’t be lured into buying cranberry beans for a recipe thinking they are some sort of fancy new and exotic ingredient…they taste like plain.old.pintos! #imnotbitter #ihateyoufoodnetworkmagazine

PB&J Hummus: 

  • 1 cup cooked beans
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite jam or preserves
  • 1-2 tablespoons of water as needed to thin out mixture

Combine all ingredients into a food processor, Magic Bullet, or blender and give it a spin. You will have to stop a few times to scrape down the sides of your mixing vessel…hmm, I like that word…all of a sudden I feel like I’m making hummus on a submarine! 😉

Made with my favorite brand of blueberry preserves from TJ Maxx.

You may remember from this post why I love these little jams so much!


Or maybe you’d like a little apricot preserves?

The combinations are pretty much limitless!

But wait just a minute…this isn’t JUST for sandwiches…

It also makes for a fantastic dip for apple slices!

They are totally loving their dip in the “hummus hot tub” 😉

Or, if you’re feeling adventurous…

Oh yes. I did.

And it was incredible!

Hmm, what is the Tree of Life doing in my banana?

You know that’s a sign right? This stuff was MEANT to be in your life! 😉

What is one food that when you eat it, you automatically think of your childhood?
