This tasty keto & paleo hummus combines some of the healthiest fats from avocado, macadamia nuts and extra virgin olive oil - all of these ketogenic foods are fantastic sources of heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. Avocado and macadamias are also high in electrolytes, especially magnesium and potassium. You wouldn't believe how well soaked macadamia nuts work in hummus instead of the traditionally used high-carb chickpeas!

I served mine on top of baby sweet peppers, jalapeños and celery stalks. You can even serve them with freshly chopped carrots - just watch out for the extra carbs and stick with 1 to 2 carrots per serving.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

This looks great!  How long would it last?


Thank you! I would say up to 5 days but best eaten within 3-4 days. It can be frozen for up to 3 months.

Never used Tahini paste before. Did not stir like I was supposed too. So got spicy oil (used spicy red tahini) out of container instead of paste. And used Ninja blender instead of food processor. So chunky hummus with very little Tahini. Still tastes great though...


Oh my just made this and it is deliciousness!!! I like it better than hummus made from chick peas!


Thank you for your lovely feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed!


I am going to make this soon . Loved the recipe. Such a great idea to replace the carbs and a change from Cauliflower hummus 😊😊😊


I hope you like it, Ankita!


Is it possible to leave out the tahini?  I'm allergic.


Tahini is used for taste (makes it more like traditional hummus) but you can either replace it with a handful more of macadamia nuts or an equivalent amount of almond butter. It will not taste the same but nutritionally it will be very similar.
