Sweet Pumpkin Hummus.

September 11, 2012 Post a comment

Hummus doesn’t always have to be savory.  I whipped this little dish up last fall, of course, pumpkin inspired, and I had to make it again.  I just love it!  My kids love it too with sliced apples.  In fact, I have it all ready for them when they get home from school.  Great snack and so healthy!  You have to give this one a whirl.



1 -15oz can of chickpeas, drained and washed
1 heaping cup of pumpkin puree
1/4c nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew)
2 tbl coconut oil
2 tbl maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp honey
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp of freshly grated ginger
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt

Blend it all in your food processor until hummus consistency. Serve with apples, crackers, graham crackers, gingersnaps etc.

Looks fab as always! Is it sweet?

It is so creamy and has a hint of sweetness. Fixed the nut butter too :)

How did you fix the nut butter? In fact, how would you make it to begin with? Thanks in advance for any help!

I used already prepared nut butter.

Wow, did you come up with this all on your own? So creative! I’m intrigued- definitely adding it to the list of New Things to Try.

I just made this today and was stunned by how amazing it tastes! I always thought dessert hummus sounded a little strange, but this recipe is definitely a keeper. I could barely stop eating it with a spoon right after I made it!
