Happy Friday guys! A couple weeks ago I shared an exclusive recipe from the Winter meal plan of the NS Society, the Energy Almond Butter Balls, but I couldn’t help it – I just had to share one more! Today’s recipe is Beet Hummus, one of my favorite snacks because it’s so versatile.

Seriously dip almost anything in this beet hummus, put it on top of a salad, add it to a sandwich, the list goes on. Plus it’s also delicious and ridiculously easy. I love making a big bowl on Sunday during batch cooking so I have a healthy snack ready to go when hunger strikes in between meals. If you ever find yourself reaching for a sugar-filled snack or even hitting the vending machine when you need a little something in between meals, try this recipe out! Oh, and try it smeared on the Grain Free Walnut Bread – it is sublime.
