Ingredient notes and substitutions
Chickpeas - Canned or cooked chickpeas will both work in this pumpkin hummus recipe. If you use canned chickpeas, drain and rinse them well before adding them to the food processor.
Pumpkin Puree - I like to use my own pumpkin puree when I make this hummus. You can also use canned 100% real pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.
Peanut Butter - Adds a nice creamy touch, and you can't really taste it. Use natural peanut butter with no sugar added. Peanut butter can be replaced with cashew butter, almond butter, or tahini.
Maple Syrup - Can be substituted with an equal amount of honey or your liquid favorite sweetener.
The perfect way to enjoy pumpkin pie dip is with a drizzle of maple syrup and a little bit of cinnamon, chopped pecans, sesame seeds, or pumpkin seeds on top.
Serve with apple slices, pear slices, cookies, crackers, or pretzels as dippers.
How to store and use leftovers
Store leftover hummus in the refrigerator for up to 5 days in an airtight container.
Freeze pumpkin hummus for up to three months in a freezer-safe container. Defrost it in the refrigerator overnight.
If thawed pumpkin pie hummus appears watery, add a little more peanut butter to thicken it.
Savory - Try making this hummus savory and omit the syrup. Add 1 clove of garlic, and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Replace the peanut butter with tahini.
Yogurt & pumpkin pie hummus - Stir in ½ cup of Greek yogurt and serve as a fruit dip.
Chocolate chip pumpkin hummus - Stir in ¼ to ½ cup of chocolate chips into the hummus.
Change the beans - Instead of chickpeas, use mild white beans.

Yes! Even though a food processor is the best tool to use to make hummus. A high-speed blender can be used, and you may have to blend in batches.
Yes, garbanzo beans and chickpeas are two names for the same food.
