Hemp Ranch Hummus
Hemp Ranch Hummus- hemp seeds replace oil in this recipe for a super creamy hummus that’s packed full of protein and healthy omega 3 fatty acids. Less than 10 ingredients to make!
I know there are already a bajillion hummus recipes on the internet so you guys are probably like, oh wow…hummus…so cool.
But hear me out! This one is different because hemp seeds replace the oil for a hummus that’s higher in protein and omega-3 fatty acids while also being lower in saturated fat. Plus the creaminess is on another level.
I’m sharing this Hemp Ranch Hummus today to celebrate Sonja + Alex in their adoption of their first baby boy, Larson. Over the past couple of years, they’ve been vulnerable enough to share their story with struggling to conceive and eventually having to go through the difficult process of adoption. To see them finally be able to bring home baby Larson gives me so much joy and I feel honored to be a part of the celebration.
The theme for the virtual party is healthy snacks which we all know is important when you have a newborn and are strapped for time. I mean, I don’t first hand but I can imagine there’s a struggle to sit down and enjoy full meals.
With that in mind, I created this quick and easy hummus that’s packed full of protein, fiber, healthy fats and antioxidants. Everything a mama needs to keep her energy levels going strong.
I hope you guys get a chance to try this hummus because I think you’re going to love it. Be sure to check out what everyone else brought to the party below!

Aw I love that you all are doing that for your friends! I am super lazy, so I’ve never actually made my own hummus. I know, I can’t even call myself a blogger. This looks so creamy and yummy!
You are definitely a blogger! Just a lifestyle blogger which is perfectly fine. And I buy already made hummus all of the time. Shhh!! ;)
Just made it and had to leave a comment! So creamy and I feel great knowing how nutritious it is. Currently snacking on it with some blue corn tortilla chips :)
Ahhh thank you so much for this, Sarah! The recipe looks INCREDIBLE, I must say we have never tried hemp hummus! And ranch — did you know I’m a huge sucker for dill? I love this and it looks so fresh and delicious. Thank you for the sweet words about Larson too. We feel so loved! Sending hugs and love from little L.
This sounds delicious!! Making it soon!
Such a great idea!! I’ve actually never used hemp seeds before, but I definitely want to try this soon!
Congrats to Sonja and Alex — they must be over the moon with their baby boy! I’m crazy about the sound of this hummus. For starters, there are never enough hummus recipes, and this is so different! Plus the color is gorgeous. I haven’t used hemp and need to give it a try!

Huge congrats to Sonja and Alex!! What an amazing journey…there’s so much value in adopting and I always feel so proud of people who do..their story is so heart-warming.
I had never thought to infuse hummus with hemp for an omega boost! This is simply brilliant! Definitely the perfect dip to bring to any celebration! <3
I’m a huge hummus fan, but I’ve never had hemp ranch hummus. Sounds awesome! I love incorporating hemp hearts into hummus for a nutritional boost.
It looks delicious, hummus is just so versatile
I’ve been loving hemp seeds lately, what a great use for them! And you are so kind for lifting your friends up this way! Love a snack-themed virtual shower for new parents!
