Hummus & Date Toast

   Hummus & Date Toast  

Now, before you go running off and thinking, “That girl’s crazy”… hear me out. If done right, a salty-sweet combo can be pure toast perfection. And lucky for you, I’ve perfected it, and all you have to do is recreate it in your own kitchen. It’s super simple and easy. But, I’ll warn you, I’ve only tested (and perfected!) it with these specific ingredients, so substitute at your own risk!


Go with a neautral, but nutty flavored bread. I love Udi’s Whole Grain Gluten Free Bread or Dr. Schar’s Multi-Grain Gluten Free Bread.


Be warned: not all hummus is created equal. Most hummus is loaded with salt and preservatives… and if there’s too much of either of those, that salty-sweet combo perfection I referenced above can be ruined. So, how do you avoid that? You make your own (… but, really, who wants to take the time to do that?) OR you let my friends over at Hummustir do the work for you. Hummustir is a shelf-stable, fully customizable hummus.

Think about it… what are the bare-bones essential ingredients for a good hummus? Really, it’s just chickpeas and tahini. Each Hummustir tub comes with shelf-stable packets of chickpea puree and tahini, and some additional spices if you want to use them. For this salty-sweet perfection Hummus & Date Toast, skip the spices. Just mix up the chickpea puree and the tahini! And that’s it! AND the other great part about hummustir? The tubs can sit in your pantry for up to a year before going bad. It’s organic, non-GMO, and free of preservatives like potassium sorbate. Once you’ve mixed up a tub, just store it in the fridge until you’re done eating it… which won’t take long, I promise. Just watch my instagram stories anytime to see how much my girls love this stuff. (And don’t forget that amazon discount code: MILKNHON)

Medjool Date Paste

See the instructions below for making the perfect sweet addition to this toast. Medjool date paste is great in recipes, but it’s also perfect as a spread. A great way to add natural sweetness, without added sugars, and the sugar crash that inevitably comes later on. I love using Natural Delights Medjool Dates. They’re a trusted brand with great quality and flavor. And the texture is just … you guessed it… perfection!


Again, you can make your own using raw nuts, coconut, dried fruit, chia seeds, etc. Or, find a pre-made one you love. You can find some that are just raw ingredients, with no added sweeteners or flavorings.

All-Natural Peanut Butter

There’s not a whole lot of explanation needed here… peanut butter should have one and only one ingredient. I’ll give you a minute to think about what that should be… I know, it’s tough one… keep thinking. Did you think of one? Ok, ok… I’ll tell you… it’s peanuts!! I love Crazy Richard’s because this is the only ingredient in their peanut butter… AND they’re very affordable (less than $4 a jar) unlike a lot of other natural peanut butters.


So there you have it… everything you need to know to make the perfect salty-sweet Hummus & Date Toast. Now go gather your ingredients, get that toaster fired up, and get in the kitchen!
