I made pumpkin seed butter yesterday.
Make this now!
If I didn’t think the word amazeballs was disturbing, I would totally use it to describe this nut butter.
- 2 cups of raw hulled organic pumpkin seeds (toasted them in a 350 oven for 10 minutes, until slightly browned)
- 15 stevia drops (or 1/2 teaspoon)
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Take the roasted pumpkin seeds, allow them to cool slightly, and throw them in the food processor – letting them whiz on by for about 15 minutes. Stop every 2-3 minutes to scrape down the sides.
It took a while, but finally the seeds started to resemble into a smooth nut butter.
Oh my gosh. Amazing.
Pumpkin seeds also happen to be a nutrition super food. They are high in manganese, iron and zinc.
Plus this nut butter ends up a fun green color. And who doesn’t love green food?!
I’ve been eating this spread atop pumpkin bread for the ultimate Fall treat.
That’s it for today.
Have you ever tried pumpkin seed butter?
