Pumpkin Pie Dessert Hummus

Pumpkin Pie Hummus 1

I have made pumpkin spice everything else, so I decided that some pumpkin pie hummus would be wonderful...since I am still craving pumpkin deliciousness.  I like to have either hummus or nut butter with apples or crackers for an evening snack, but I get bored having the same thing, so this pumpkin pie hummus was a good way to switch it up!  If dessert hummus sounds weird to you, you have to try this.  It tastes just like pumpkin pie.  Not like chickpeas at all.

The chickpeas just serve as a protein rich blank palette!  This is amazing with cinnamon flax crackers, or sweet tart honeycrisp apple slices.  You get your dessert, but the nutrition of the pumpkin and the fiber and protein of the chickpeas too which I love.  I try to create things that are a win win...delicious and satisfying my craving but nourishing my body at the same time. I hope you all are enjoying your Autumn so far, and if you are a pumpkin pie lover, you simply must try this hummus!
