The Perfect After School Snack | Easy Hummus Recipe and Honey Wheat Pretzels

Do your kids come home starving after school?  No matter how much I pack for lunch… mine are always starving when they get home!

Healthy Snacks are so important for a Healthy Household. One of our favorite Snacks is Hummus with Pretzels.   We can sit Around the Family Table for hours this easy hummus recipe. .

We absolutely love Chick Peas. When we go Back to College Shopping for my daughter, Chick Peas are always on the top of her list. What can I say, we are a very strange family!

I had this pre conceived notion that Hummus was hard to make.  We had always purchased the store bought varieties. When I tasted my friend Diana’s Hummus, I knew I had to try making Hummus! I liked it even better when she told me it was a four ingredient recipe and so easy to make.  It was time to roll up our sleeves and give it a whirl!

      Mike~A freezer club is when you make meals and freeze them. All you have to do is take them out of the freeze and warm in the oven.
