Kids Peanut Butter Hummus

Pita Sandwiches with Peanut Butter, Honey, and Banana Hummus

I cannot believe how well my invention turned out!  This is a peanut butter hummus (no, there is no garlic!) sweetened with honey, sprinkled with cinnamon, and served in a pita sandwich with bananas.  SUPER nutritious, and SUPER tasty! The sprinkles on top make it that much more appealing to the little ones. This snack is not only great for parties, but for regular after-school snacks as well. Parents, you will thank me for this one, cause your kids are gonna start to like eating healthy…without knowing it!

Peanut Butter Hummus Ingredients:

  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter
  • 1/4-1/3 c. honey
  • Cinnamon, to taste
  • Pumpkin spice, to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • A little bit of either orange juice or milk, but just enough to allow it to blend. (About 2-3 tbsp)

Tip: If your child is picky about the chunky consistency, you can make the hummus smoother by removing the skins off the garbanzo beans.  Simply roll each bean between your fingers and it will slide right off.

Blend above ingredients. Cut out star-shapped pitas and fill with peanut butter hummus and slices of bananas. Top with pita star. Add cooking spray to top of pita and add sprinkles.
