I love the tastes of fall. Apples, sweet potatoes, squash, and of course pumpkin. As you have noticed, I don’t really make many desserts or sweet things and for the most part, that applies to pumpkin too. Since we eat a lot of hummus here, a pumpkin version was sure to come along. The best part, Ella helped me to write the recipe ensuring it would be a kid pleaser. Despite the fact that they were SO sure they would not like pumpkin hummus, the ate every last bite.
While we all know baked chips are healthier, they are not always the most exciting thing to eat. Simply use seasonal cookie cutters for a special little (and adorable) touch. We used pumpkin, witch, star and cat shapes this time. Don’t worry, I have a Christmas version coming up too!
