Tis the season for all things pumpkin – even hummus! I love hummus, especially making my own. You know exactly what goes into it and there’s no weird preservatives. It’s also super cheap to make!
I recently made a chocolate hummus you can find in this post that is super yummy and not too sweet. This pumpkin hummus is also not sweet, but that’s how I like it. You’ll see that it has no refined sugar, just pure maple syrup (NOT pancake syrup lol) which is a healthier sugar substitute.
- 1 can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) – rinsed and drained
- 1/3 cup of pumpkin puree (you can buy this in a can at the store)
- 1/3 cup of pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup of tahini (you can sub for a nut butter if you want)
- 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
Blend in a food processor or blender until it’s creamy. I kept adding more pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice until it was the flavor I wanted. If it’s still too thick, add splashes of water and keep blending.
You can top with chocolate chips for a yummy addition and serve with apple slices, pretzels, graham crackers, or anything you want!
