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!

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!
