Basil Feta Hummus

basil feta hummus | my skinny sweet tooth

It’s a short work week thanks to the independence of our country! Woohoo! So that means there will be tons of cookouts and picnics (which reminds me to tell my husband to take me on one … a picnic that is 😉 ) This hummus is tahini free (I never have tahini on hand) and has a subtle flavor of basil and feta: my favorite duo at the moment! See, its good with fruit, too!

With 6 ingredients and one food processor later, you’ll have a delicious and light dip for that cookout. Pair it with pita chips, carrots, cucumbers or spoons. Let’s be honest … I can eat hummus with a spoon and nothing else. So good!

chocolate chip pretzel blondies

chocolate chip pretzel blondies | my skinny sweet tooth

With this last round of snow this season (hopefully), my husband and I both have “snow days”  today. We’re snowed in (a total of 11″!) so any plans to venture out was slim to none. He was working hard outside snow shoveling the driveway, so I figured I would work hard in the kitchen … making an easy batch of these. Talk about coming together quickly! And while they were cooling, my husband came back inside. I heard him sniffing the air and following the aroma right into the kitchen. He took one look at ’em and said “Oh my! What are THOSE?!” Needless to say, they look and smell great! I’m always in search of a great blondie recipe, and with this one, I believe I’ve stuck gold.

This recipe is adapted from one of my favorite blogs. The base is flour, egg, and butter free and full of fiber. In the end,  I just added the pretzels. There’s a salty crunch with the sweet, gooey blondies. The perfect combo. 😉

Have a glass of almond milk ready! 😋
