Pumpkin Spice Sweet Potato Hummus Recipe

This time of year, pumpkin tends to get all the attention.

And yes, I’m totally guilty of this too and just posted pumpkin cornbread AND pumpkin banana muffins. #sorrynotsorry

Before you get your carve on or beeline for the can of pumpkin puree, let’s show sweet potatoes some love!

Sweet Potato Hummus with Cinnamon Sugar Flatbread

The hummus itself is savory, creamy, and totally luscious but, always the fan of the combination of both sweet and savory flavors togehter, I topped it with a sweet sprinkling of pumpkin spice and dove in face-first with cinnamon sugar flatbread for dipping. The combination had me SWOONING!

Paul and I basically stopped talking entirely and made it our life’s goal to devour this giant bowl of hummus. I regret nothing. SO GOOD!

No pumpkin spice? No problem!


Make your own by combining 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon with 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon ground clove. Make as much or as little as you want to keep on hand for all your Fall recipe needs.

  • 2 sweet potatoes (medium-large)
  • 2-3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper*
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4-1/2 pumpkin pie spice plus extra for topping
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 15 oz canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed (or 2 cups cooked chickpeas)
  • 3 TBSP tahini
  • spicy sesame oil for drizzling, or use your favorite oil


  • 2 naan flatbreads
  • 1 TBSP melted butter or olive oil
  • 2 tsp brown sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1/8-1/4 ground cinnamon or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and bake your sweet potatoes until soft. Depending on the size you choose, this could takte 45-60 minutes. Remove the skin and get ready to blend! Alternatively you can peel and chop the sweet potatoes first and roast them for 40 minutes with a drizzle of oil.

  2. Heat a small pan to medium heat with 2 tsp olive oil. Add garlic and spices, then saute until fragrant, careful not to burn the garlic. Add lemon juice to deglaze the pan of all the spices/flavor.

  3. In a food processor, combine sweet potato and spice mixture with remaining hummus ingredients. Blend well, scraping down the sides as needed. For an even creamier hummus, you can add a few TBSP of olive oil or extra tahini, to taste.

  4. Top with a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice. I like to swirl  1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice into the hummus then top with extra plus a little drizzle of spicy sesame oil. Feel free to follow suit! Dive in with cinnamon sugar dusted flatbread.

  5. To make the flatbreads, warm naan in the microwave for 30 seconds. Rub with olive oil or brush with melted butter and then sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and sugar. Feel free to add extra to taste. Rub into the flatbread and allow to cool. Slice into wedges for dunking and feel free to make extra flatbreads if you're serving a crowd!

Recipe Notes

* The cayenne pepper here is optional BUT I think it's crazy AMAZING for a spicy-sweet kick, especially since we're cinnamon-sugar-ing our flatbread dippers.   If you're on the fence, feel free to make the hummus without cayenne and you can always add it in later if you change your mind.

Serving a crowd? Make extra flatbreads as needed! You can even toast them into pita chips if you'd like.

I love this hummus with my cinnamon sugar flatbreads for dunking but cinnamon sugar pita chips are also super awesome dippers for this sweet potato hummus.

    I haven’t made this yet, but was wondering about subbing canned pumpkin purée for the baked sweet potato. How much would I use? Also, if I used sweet potato, can you give a measurement for them (either in ounces or cups of sweet potato purée)?
    I’m asking because I just saw some Pumpkin Dessert Hummus at the store & I want to recreate it.😉

    Loved this recipe! The hummus was absolutely delicious. It was actually a bit “lighter” than traditional hummus and it had all of the savory flavors of Fall. I would never have thought to pair it with sweet cinnamon- sugar flatbread! The pairing was perfect!

    • Thank you Jen! The cinnamon sugar totally made it for me too -sweet and savory FTW!

  • Sounds absaloutly delish. Perfect for any bread
