Cannot find module ‘hbs’, express-handlebars

I am trying to use express-handlebars view engine for express and I keep getting the following error:

Error: Cannot find module 'hbs'

Here is my Code:

const express = require("express");
const bodyParser = require("body-parser");
const hbs = require("express-handlebars");
const router = require("./routes/routes");
//set up express app
var app = express();
app.use(bodyParser.json());
app.set('view engine', 'hbs');
app.set('views', './views');
app.set('view options', {layout: './layouts/layout'});
app.use(router);
