Pumpkin Hummus with a Kick

Smooth and creamy hummus made with sweet pumpkin. This hummus has a slight kick to it from the chili and contains no oil. Serve with bread or use as a dip.

It’s about time I shared a recipe other than baked goodies with you guys again. I can’t even remember the last time. The past few months have all been cookies, cupcakes and more. But today it’s time for homemade hummus! Pumpkin hummus. A while back I tried this store-bought pumpkin hummus in one of my taste tests (Dutch) and both me and my boyfriend liked it a lot. And so I decided to make my own version. A version without added sugar and less salt. It turned out delicious (if I may say so myself). I’ve made this hummus a couple of times now and each of those times the batch hasn’t lasted more than a few days. Gone in a jiffy. That good.

These spiders are super easy to make and taste delicious too! The best thing about this DIY is that YOU can decide how many of these sweet goodnesses you want to make. If you buy Oreos that come in serving size packaging, you only need to make two. Always welcome to make more of course 😉 In addition, if you’ve got European Oreos, you can even make these vegan by using vegan chocolate! (EU Oreos are vegan.)

So inspired by my trip to Japan, I wrote a recipe for Japanese Pancakes a.k.a. Hotcakes. These pancakes are thick and very fluffy. I made mine a tad smaller than the ones I had in Japan for two reasons: Read more
