Apple Pie Hummus

Apple Pie HummusI should just rename this blog Pumps & Hummus already. I can’t help myself—I love making hummus. I use it for dipping when I need a snack; I spread it on sandwiches; I eat it with my fingers…Apple Pie Hummus

I wanted to experiment with an apple-flavored hummus to serve on Thanksgiving, and by swapping tahini for almond butter and adding in some fall spices, I managed to come up with a light, refreshing version of an apple pie.

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
