Hummus is one of my all time favorite healthy snacks! Whether I’m getting a little spicy with Sriracha Hummus or brightening things up with Beet Hummus, you can’t go wrong with this creamy chickpea dip!

Since I love squash, pumpkin spice and all things fall, I decided to make Pumpkin Hummus. It gets a little sweetness and spice from maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice, and all it’s creaminess from pureed pumpkin and chickpeas.

It couldn’t be easier to make. All you need is a blender or food processor and 10 minutes of your time, then this dip is ready to go! Serve it with apples for a healthy snack or indulge a little with some cinnamon sugar pita chips.

This dip is perfect for an after school snack, Halloween party or any fall get-together. I’ve made it for several parties over the years and it’s always a hit! People love the idea of a sweet hummus recipe, instead of the usual savory or spicy hummus varieties.

How to make Pumpkin Hummus

  • Add chickpeas, pumpkin puree, tahini, maple syrup, olive oil and pumpkin pie spice to a food processor or blender.
    • Quick tip! Make sure to buy pumpkin puree, NOT pumpkin pie filling when purchasing the canned pumpkin.
  • Blend until smooth and creamy.
    • Quick tip! If using a large food processor, you may have to scrape down the sides of the bowl a couple of times and puree again to incorporate all of the ingredients together. If the hummus seems too thick and needs more liquid, add 1-2 tbsp water.
  • Place in the refrigerator to chill for 30-60 minutes before serving.
