stupidly simple, homemade hummus


I love hummus. Like LOVE hummus. I'll eat it by the spoonful for breakfast, lunch + dinner...and then for a midnight snack. But I also love making it in mini batches at home so that I can try new + tasty creations. I usually dip hummus with cut veggies or Whole Foods pita chips, or even spread it on top of my avocado toast. BUT lately I've super into the Baked Lentil Chips from Saffron Road. 

Scroll down for my favorite homemade hummus recipe. It takes less than 10 minutes and only requires a blender. 




  • 2 cans of chickpeas {undrained} 
  • 1 HEAPING tablespoon of coconut oil 
  • 3 {aggressive} shakes of cayenne pepper 
  • 1 sprinkle of salt 
  • Optional (but like not really) garnish: crunchy chickpeas from saffron road


  • Pour both cans of chickpeas {WITH chickpea water} into your blender. 
  • Blend on low until chunkily-smooth. 
  • Add coconut oil, cayenne pepper + salt. 
  • Continue to blend on medium-high power for a minute. 
  • Reverse blend for 30 seconds. 
  • Continue until smooth. 
  • Scoop into a cute, photogenic bowl and add that crunchy chickpea garnish...and then sneak a few for a snack. 
  • Try not to eat it all at once. 

AND THAT'S IT. Try it, enjoy it, then get creative and try your own combinations. Honestly, though, guys. Get after it.
