Ingredients for the hummus

1 small can (7.75 ounces) chickpeas (reserve 1 Tablespoon liquid)

1 Tablespoon peanut butter (smooth or chunky)

¼ teaspoon sesame oil

½ teaspoon cinnamon

Dash of salt


Drain the liquid from the chickpeas, except for one tablespoon. Place the chickpeas in a blender and pulse until the beans break into smaller chunks. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until you reach your desired consistency. Add the chickpea liquid in small increments to reach a smoother consistency and less for a chunkier hummus. Serve immediately or chill for later use.

Ingredients for the pita chips

1 12-ounce package pitas (5 loaves)

cinnamon and sugar mix (see directions)

cooking spray


Using a pizza cutter, cut the pitas into six pieces as you would with a small pizza. Lightly spray a 9 x 13” baking pan with cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In an old spice container (or similar container with holes on the lid top) mix ½ cup sugar and 1 Tablespoon cinnamon (or more based on your tastes). Place the pita slices onto the baking pan; lightly coat with the cooking spray. Sprinkle the slices lightly with the cinnamon-sugar mix. Place in the oven and cook for 7 to 12 minutes or until just crisped. Enjoy.
