Having a quick healthy snack in the fridge- ready to grab when hunger hits is so important! One of my very favorite, go-to snacks is black bean hummus. Black beans are high in both protein and and dietary fiber (packing 15 grams of each per cup)!! This version of hummus is totally oil free and I would say even creamier and more delicious that any store bought brand! Typical store bought hummus has 80 calories and 7 grams of fat per two tablespoons. This version has 39 calories and 1 gram of fat…while still packing a protein and fiber punch!
I love this hummus with cucumbers, carrots and red peppers…but I also love to top salads and flat bread pizza with this yummy dip.
