If you’re looking for a healthy, high protein snack, you’ll love this one!With my garden full of ripe summer veggies to harvest, this hummus is so delicious for dipping veggies (or chips) in! This is also great in wraps or sandwiches with tons of flavour!

Chick peas(garbanzo beans) are a great source of protein and olive oil is high in healthy monosaturated fats which makes this a fantastic healthy plant based high protein snack. Using canned chick peas is a quick way to make this recipe or you can use dried chick peas and soak them overnight before using them.

Why is a high protein snack important?

A high protein snack is important because it helps you feel full for a longer period of time. It maintains your blood sugar levels at a steady level rather than causing highs and lows as with high sugar or carbohydrate snacks.

Protein is also important for building muscles, healing injuries, and has a more positive effect on your mood than sugary snacks do.
