I found this recipe off of a website:

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

garbanzo beans (either canned or cooked)
reserved bean water
peanut butter


The amount of ingredients in this recipe depend on your personal taste. Adding the garbanzo beans to the peanut butter allows one to enjoy the flavor without the such a high fat content.

In a large bowl combine the garbanzo beans and peanut butter. Place in a food processor or blender. Blend ingredients, adding reserved bean water until preferred consistency is reached.

This would probably be great with celery sticks.

I made a similar recipe tonight and it's great! I've been battling peanut butter cravings and this might be my ticket to making peace with them. Yum

1 can (2 c) garbanzo beans
1/3 c warm water
4 T peanut butter
3 T lemon or lime juice
1 garlic clove
salt to taste

It also called for 2 T olive oil but I skipped that and didn't miss it.

Have u tried PB2?

No, though I've heard a lot about it around 3FC. It is not SBD safe and seems to contain sugar in every flavor.

I made this today and I'm very happy with it.

I used the original version and added a little cinnamon. It was great with my apple slices and also really good with a Triscuit. I can't wait to have some with my red pepper tomorrow. And maybe some celery.....

I made this freehand, so to speak, and I don't like it. :( Wanted to. I blame myself, the chick peas didn't get smooth, and I didn't want to OD on peanut butter so the taste is funny. Cinnamon helped, but I'm not loving this like store bought hummus. Will try again with it, though.
