Pumpkin Pie Hummus – A delicious dessert hummus that takes just minutes to make! Grab a cinnamon sugar pita chip and dig in to this addicting fall appetizer!
Welcome to day two of Pumpkin Week! 31 bloggers are all posting recipes that are made with pumpkin October 2-6 to celebrate the season and today’s recipe is a Pumpkin Pie Hummus! If you missed yesterday’s Pumpkin French Madeleines, make sure to go check it out and keep your eye out for the Pumpkin Pie Cream Puffs, Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter, and Pumpkin Cream Horns later this week!
So I am a huge fan of hummus and when I saw a dessert hummus circling around on Pinterest, I was really intrigued. I couldn’t imagine what a sweet hummus would taste like and I was pleasantly surprised! The pumpkin flavors really shined through beautifully! I brought it for lunch every day with a few homemade Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips! I like making homemade pita chips because I can make them slightly healthier by using coconut oil and coconut sugar on whole grain pita bread. They really complement the flavors of the hummus perfectly!
I don’t think there has been a variety of hummus I haven’t enjoyed! I think my favorite is roasted red pepper. It is such a wonderful, lighter snack. I usually will pair it with fresh cucumber slices and on occasion, carrots! I can’t wait to try making different types myself!
