Hummus Biscuits

Simple and tasty and with only 5 ingredients, these hummus biscuits are a must make! These delightfully fluffy biscuits are gluten free and are made with coconut oil instead of butter!

A little over a year ago I decided I would go gluten-free with my daughter-as a show of solidarity. It wasn’t a big deal I told myself – and her.

There are gluten free options for just about everything these days after all. I picked up a few tips here and there and got comfortable with a few gluten-free flours and life went on – with treats in it.

But – recently, the desire to experiment with other flours started to gurgle inside my gray matter. The desire was so strong that before I knew it I was introducing millet flour and sorghum flour to my pantry shelves.

The first thing I decided to make with my new “friends” were cookies – savory millet and hummus cookies – using gluten free Sabra hummus.

Why you ask?

Well, because cookies are portable and perfect for sharing at tailgating parties with those who need gluten-free options. And, if you have a hard time sharing like I do, they are also perfect to munch on on your way to a tailgating party where you know the options are slim!  😆 


However, my first attempt using millet flour crashed and burned ended up in the trash! So I went back to the cutting board and tweaked my flour to hummus ratios (opting to use sorghum flour this time around) and ended up with these fluffy savory “cookies”!

My daughter looked at them and said that we just couldn’t call them cookies as they look more like biscuits, so Hummus Biscuits they became!

Biscuits With Sorghum Flour And Hummus

These are not as tall or flaky as some biscuits are, but they are light and fluffy and are jam packed with flavor from the Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and Sabra Supremely Spicy Hummus in them. It is said that #TwoSpoons of hummus a day will fulfill your bean recommendation for an entire week – so why not try nibbling on these Hummus Biscuits to get your weekly allotment?

    Dear Shashi, you are so clever. I love this idea for hummus biscuits. So simple and I know, so delicious! I I’m finding that I can sub coconut oil in so many things in my baking and seems to work well. And healthier! Have a wonderful weekend dear friend! xo

  14. Savory cookies are the best of both worlds and I love the roasted red pepper hummus in there. Brilliant idea!

  15. cottercrunch says:

    i made hummus flatbread before, but i totally got to try your biscuits. I bet they would be great with soup!

  16. I love savory cookies, and these hummus biscuits are pure genius, Shashi. I need these in my life. Happy weekend! 🙂

  17. It is quite challenging working with gluten free flours as they don’t work quite the same. Well done on standing with your daughter on this 🙂

  18. What? Hummus biscuits? How genius is that, eh? And I think you’re the craziest (with a good connotation) food blogger I’ve ever known. I guess you’re capable of combining all possible combos in all possible (and sometimes impossible) textures and flavors and making sensational food like these biscuits! Well done!

  19. hotlyspiced says:

    There are so many GF flours – if you bought them all you’d definitely have a full pantry. I like how you made thiese with the spicy hummus xx

  20. Totally had no idea you could make biscuits with hummus! I have to try that supremely spicy hummus! It sounds amazing!

  21. What an amazing idea! Hummus never actually lasts long enough in my house to make anything with it. I love the idea of buying a few extra containers to make these biscuits. Good luck with the contest, Shashi!

  22. The idea of hummus biscuits is totally genius! Love that you used sorghum flour 🙂

  23. spicedblog says:

    Say what?? Hummus biscuits? What a crazy cool idea! And I can only imagine how good these would taste with the Sabra Red Pepper variety…yumm!! This recipe is indeed proof of why you should stick to something and try, try again until you get it right! In fact, these biscuits are something akin to the Little Engine That Could of biscuits. 🙂

  24. dishofdailylife says:

    Your biscuits / cookies sound wonderful…what a great idea! I had no idea about the bean recommendation…we are getting that and then some! We love hummus here and eat it all the time. When I don’t make it myself, Sabra is our go-to brand.

  25. What a clever and fun idea! I love these cookies, Shashi.

  26. Shashi! How perfectly simple and delicious these look! And at just 5 ingredients, why Lynne could almost make them! 😉
