Autumn is here and we are going to celebrate the season with this super easy Dessert Pumpkin Hummus recipe. This recipe is quick and easy, but is packed with all the great flavors of Fall.
This dessert pumpkin hummus takes just 5 minutes to prepare.
And you can serve it up with just about anything you have in your pantry - graham crackers, plain or sweet pita chips, even plain crackers or the fancy multi grain ones.
It makes for a fun after school snack or a quick appetizer for an unannounced get together. And of course, an awesome dessert dip.
How to Make Pumpkin Hummus
This recipe couldn't be any simpler to prepare. It comes together in just a few minutes with a handful of simple ingredients.
Start off by combining pumpkin puree, chickpeas, pumpkin pie spice, and maple syrup in the blender.
Then simply puree until it's smooth and creamy - and perfectly dippable.
If you prefer a sweeter hummus, you can add additional maple syrup or a touch of brown sugar to taste.
Tips & Tricks
For this easy recipe, I used canned pumpkin puree. It is a great time saver, especially when you need a quick after school snack in a jiffy.
Be sure you choose plain pumpkin puree and not a prepared pumpkin pie filling - the latter will be too sweet.
But if you want to roast your own pumpkin and make your own pumpkin puree, hats off to you! 🙂
I used maple syrup to sweeten this dessert hummus, and also as added liquid to smooth out the texture. It doesn’t take much since pumpkin already has a hint of sweetness.
However, feel free to increase the amount of maple syrup in this recipe to your taste. Or you can use agave syrup in its place.
Before serving this hummus, drizzle with a bit more maple syrup and sprinkle with a bit more pumpkin pie spice. You can even garnish with pumpkin seeds if desired.
