These low calorie hummus vegetable snacks make a great lunch or snack. 1 flatbread makes 10 pieces for only 4 ww smart points.
Recently I’ve been on a hummus kick. I don’t know if you shop at Aldi but they had a few different flavors of hummus this summer and jalapeño lime was my favorite. I usually eat hummus with vegetables but one day I decided to take a flatbread, slather on the hummus and top with assorted vegetables. It was really good! I ate it for lunch that day but it would also be great for a snack. And for those doing Weight Watchers, it’s only 4 smart points for 10 pieces!
To make these little snacks start by slicing your vegetables very thin. Today I used zucchini, red onion and mini bell peppers. The flatbread I used was the Flat-out light Italian herb. Each flatbread has 6 net carbs, 90 calories and 9g of protein. I used prepared hummus from Aldi.

If you are shooting for the 4 smart points, make sure to use only 2 Tablespoons of hummus and the light Flat-out bread. Otherwise, use as much hummus as you like. Spread it evenly over the flatbread and then cut the whole thing into 10 pieces with a pizza cutter. Lastly, layer your vegetables on each piece and place on a cookie sheet that’s been lined with a silicone mat or a piece of parchment paper.

Bake for 10-15 minutes and then put them under the broiler to crisp them up more. As you can see mine are a bit burnt on the corners so just watch them and take them out when they look good to you. I hope you enjoy this easy, low calorie snack. I like to share a good thing when I find it so I hope this is helpful to those of you trying to watch what you are eating. Enjoy!
1 piece = 19 cals/0.8g fat/2.5g carbs/1.1g fiber/1.3g protein = 1.4g net carbs

I often label my recipes as low carb or Paleo and every once in awhile they are geared towards Weight Watchers. The thing with my recipes is that even if you aren’t following any of these ways of eating, the recipes are still easy, healthy and tasty. Here are a few of my favs.

Arrange the zucchini, peppers and onion on top of the hummus for each piece.
