Pumpkin Pie Dessert Hummus with Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips

Pumpkin Pie Dessert Hummus is everything that you love about pumpkin pie.. without all the fuss! This protein-packed dip comes together in minutes and tastes just like pumpkin pie filling. Serve with homemade Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips, fresh fruit, or graham crackers for a healthy fall snack or sweet treat.

 

You know that saying, “as easy as pie”? Yeah, I never really got that.

To me, pies are some of the most laborious desserts out there. After all, it’s basically two recipes disguised as one (if you’re making the crust from scratch, that is).

First, you have to make the dough. Then you have to roll the dough. Then you have to transfer the dough to a pie plate. Then you have to go back and inevitably fix all of the holes that you tore in the process. Then you need to parbake the the crust. And then you need to make the filling. Then you have to transfer the filling to the cooled pie crust. Then you have to bake the pie for another hour. And then, THEN, after all that, you finally pull your labor of love out of the oven, only to realize that you forgot to cover the crust with foil, so the edges are burnt to a crisp. *Siiiigh*

The whole thing is nothing short of a broadway production.

Luckily, I’ve found a way to evade all of this unnecessary hassle (are you surprised?)

It’s called… PUMPKIN PIE DESSERT HUMMUS. (more…)

Hello, hello! Just your friendly neighborhood Oompa Loompa popping in with yet another pumpkin recipe. And you thought I was joking when I said “I hope you like pumpkin”. HA!

In all honesty though, it was never my intention to turn this little blog into a virtual pumpkin shrine. It just sort of… happened. Kind of like when I had some leftover pumpkin sitting in my fridge and it just sort of *fell* into these oatmeal cups. Oops. #sorrynotsorry
