This tasty keto & paleo hummus combines some of the healthiest fats from avocado, macadamia nuts and extra virgin olive oil – all of these ketogenic foods are fantastic sources of heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. Avocado and macadamias are also high in electrolytes, especially magnesium and potassium. You wouldn’t believe how well soaked macadamia nuts work in hummus instead of the traditionally used high-carb chickpeas!

I served mine on top of baby sweet peppers, jalapeños and celery stalks. You can even serve them with freshly chopped carrots – just watch out for the extra carbs and stick with 1 to 2 carrots per serving.
