Healthy & Nutritious Hummus Cracker Snacks

We love hummus in our home, so it was easy to come up with this tasty treat. It’s simple to make and full of flavor! Try serving it as an appetizer at your next party or have it as an afternoon snack the whole family will enjoy. It’s healthy to boot, as hummus is rich in protein, tomatoes contain vitamin C and cucumbers are an excellent source of vitamin K. Not to mention, this combination of flavours is delicious!  Try mixing flavours and toppings each time you make it, the possibilities are endless.  With many hummus flavours and cracker types on the market, these Healthy and Nutritious Hummus Cracker Snacks will never get boring.

Any cracker will do, but consider whole wheat for a healthier alternative.  I found using cherry tomatoes and mini cucumbers to be the easiest, they tend to fit on the cracker better and end up looking great.  Although my girls don’t care how it looks, they just want to dig in.

Preparing these crackers is easy, in fact I get my oldest daughter to help me out.  She loves this recipe because she can top the crackers herself.  Begin by slicing the cucumber and tomatoes into small pieces.  Then spread a generous amount or hummus on the crackers. Add some small waves and peaks to give the crackers more character.  Place the tomatoes and cucumbers on the hummus-topped crackers – this is where the kids can really take the lead!  Finally, add some balsamic cream and pepper to taste; this combination is amazing!

Try mixing it up by adding olives and onion to a few.  There are so many ways to customize these crackers.   My youngest prefers just a cracker and hummus (she’s only 1) but my oldest loves them all dressed!   However you top them, they are sure to be a big hit.  Need some other healthy snack ideas?

  1. I would never have thought to add tomato and cucumber with crackers. Great idea. I am addicted to mustard and pickles 🙂 I should try these!
