I love almond hummus, but I wanted to create a nut hummus that didn’t require soaking overnight.

You know, for when you get that phone call that visitors are on their way?

This low-carb hummus recipe is just as delicious as the real deal. And there are no chickpeas and no legumes, just keto-friendly ingredients! Just like the Healthy Keto Avocado Hummus, this keto recipe is similar to the Keto Hummus from the KetoDiet App. It's a fat bomb made of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

It’s creamy and a bit cheesy thanks to the nutritional yeast. You don’t have to use the nutritional yeast if you don’t have any, but it does give that cheesy depth to the hummus.

Now, listen up; this will look terrible about halfway through. I looked at my first batch in absolute horror and was convinced that I had completely ruined it. Don’t panic. I promise you, if you follow the steps you will end up with a tasty, zesty, creamy, moreish hummus. Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes about 3 cups)

  • 500 grams of macadamia nuts (1.1 lb)
  • 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (90 ml)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • juice from 1 lemon, about 4 tbsp (60 ml)

  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary or parsley, chopped
  • Optional: 4 tbsp nutritional yeast (48 g/ 1.7 oz)
  • 1/4 cup hot water (60 ml)


  1. Macadamia nuts do not need to be soaked prior to this recipe. However, if you prefer soaking the macadamia nuts, place in a bowl and add filtered water. Soak for up to 3 hours. Then drain and rinse. Healthy Macadamia Keto Hummus
  2. Place macadamia nuts, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and zest, rosemary and nutritional yeast into a food processor.

  3. Process on medium speed until oils start to release from nuts.

  4. The mixture will look awful at this point, with lumps of nuts and lots of oil. Don’t panic. Process a few minutes longer and then start slowly adding the hot water.

I am planning a multi day kayak trip. I will not be able to refrigerate my foods obviously. It seems to me that this could be okay outside a fridge for a couple days at least. What are your thoughts?


I agree, it won't need refrigeration if it's just a couple of days!
