Holy happy Friday loves!

I am taking in an extra dose of those weekend feels, since it is my last weekend here in Portland!

Yes, my life has been flipped, turned upside down from 0-60 these past couple weeks, but all in a good way. I am starting a new job, moving across state lines to New Jersey, AND spending my first week at said new job in California for my first west coast trip evah.

So yeah, I’m in desperate need of some weekend-ing, sunshine, and an extra strong adult bevy…or 6.

And even better that this Friday is a Recipe Redux Friday!

I received free samples of Sabra Hummus mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the con- test. I was not compensated for my time.

I’m beginning to think that whole if you don’t use it, you lose it sentiment has some truth to it.

Since sugar has gradually made it’s departure out of my daily life aside from fruit, I find myself on the savory side of things more often than sweet.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one to turn down an ice cream cone (especially soft serve twist) or a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie still gooey from the oven. I still craving something sweet after meals. But I find I’m satisfied with a piece of fruit or just a bite of something sweet instead of uncontrollably bingeing on whatever lay in front of me.

 I also find my energy levels more stable when I reach for something with more protein, fat or both in it. Banana WITH peanut butter. Almonds AND a hard-boiled egg. Oats WITH hummus.

I know, hang in there with me. If you haven’t figured out most of the recipes on here err on the side of out there, you’re in for a rude awakening.

Hummus and veggies. Hummus and whole grain crackers. Spread on a sammy instead of mayo. Been there, done that. While still delicious, I wanted to show the more adventurous side of this brave little chickpea spread for this month’s Recipe Redux contest with Sabra.

I’ve seen some more savory snack bars out there, which makes my heart swoon, but y’all know I’m in favor for the ball or bite form when it comes to snacks.

Plus, it’s kinda like having one giant chickpea. Or a chickpea pinata filled with texture, flavor, and kazoos.

Did you know that National Hummus Day is a thing? It’s a thing. And it’s happening May 13th. Plenty of time to make some giant chickpea pinata no bake energy bites, and yummus the hummus in unity.

I used different spice blends to roll my bites in, which is completely optional, but I like having options. These are completely versatile too, which is something I love in a snack. You can make the same thing, but have it be completely different just by changing the flavor hummus you use, the different nuts or seeds you add, or what seasoning you roll it into. The snowflake of snacks, no two are exactly alike. I a-like that. 🙂

Holy hump day friends.

So I’ve been just slightly ready to tear my face off over this little blog of mine for the past week, after it somehow was targeted for an attack. An attack? I’m flattered, but leave me and my blueberry whoopie pies alone.

BUT after many complaints, convos, and $$$, I’m back bitches!

And just in time for this month’s Recipe Redux partay!

Here’s what this month’s theme had in store.
