Pumpkin Spice Dessert Hummus

Pumpkin Desserts & Baked Goods

This pumpkin spice dessert hummus tastes like pumpkin pie in dip form and is made with just 6 ingredients and sweetened naturally. It’s the perfect dip for sliced apples all fall long!


I’m sure you’ve had savory hummus before made with chickpeas, tahini, and lots of salt, garlic and olive oil, but have you tried a dessert hummus that has a sweet twist?! This pumpkin spice dessert hummus tastes like pumpkin pie in dip form and is super easy to make in a food processor.

Chickpeas are part of the pulse family and are packed plant-based protein as well as fiber, and folate. They’re super versatile, (just like pumpkin puree is!) and can be used to make things like falafel, savory hummus, roasted as a crunchy snack or salad topper and you can even use the liquid which is called aquafaba as an egg replacer in certain recipes.

Pumpkin adds nutrition and fiber to this pumpkin pie dip and if you love that quintessential taste of fall I just know that this will be your new favorite snack! It’s lightly sweetened with maple syrup, gluten free and vegan too.

Perfect as a dip for fresh fall apples, it would also be great as a Thanksgiving appetizer.
