One of my fave snacks would have to be carrot sticks with regular hommus… but this chocolate version of hommus is NEXT LEVEL.
It is a deeeeeelishous and guilt-free snack, at only 93 calories per serve. Pair it with strawberries which are a low calorie fruit and you have yourself a winning mid-afternoon snack when you start to feel that 3pm slump and need a pick-me-up.
Make up a batch on Sunday, portion it out into containers and keep it in the fridge for a mid-week indulgence. Put a smile on the face of even the fussiest kids, or make your work colleagues super jealous (don't forget to tell them where you got the recipe from!).
I can't wait for you to give this a try and let me know what you think!
