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.
This dessert pumpkin hummus is a good for you treat that is packed with vitamins from the pumpkin, protein from the chickpeas and includes no refined sugar.
But when time is tight, this recipe will serve you well.
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.
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.
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.
