Pumpkin Almond Butter

A fall spin on your favorite nut butter, this pumpkin almond butter combines roasted almonds, pumpkin puree and spices to make a delicious spread you’ll want to put on everything!

Oh the joy of moving…

I tried my best not to get distracted while packing this weekend but my food processor was sitting in the pantry begging to be used and I couldn’t resist making something.

I ended up with a jar of Pumpkin Almond Butter. No big deal.

A fall spin on your favorite nut butter, this pumpkin almond butter combines roasted almonds, pumpkin puree and spices to make a delicious spread you'll want to put on everything!

Luckily it was a quick recipe that didn’t require too much prep or clean up. I was able to get back to the task at hand (packing our entire house into boxes) pretty soon after making the butter (and posting it to Instagram / Facebook). Several people quickly guessed that it was a pumpkin butter or nut butter. You guys are good!

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups unsalted roasted almonds
  • 2/3 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds optional
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 10 drops liquid stevia I used vanilla

Instructions
 

  • Place almonds in a large food processor and process until they turn into almond butter, turning off the processor and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. This will take between 12-15 minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth, another 5 minutes or so. If you want the butter to be even smoother, you can add a little oil. I didn't think this was necessary.
  • Place pumpkin almond butter into a storage container and store in the fridge for up to one week.

Notes

This butter can be made with or without chia seeds. I added them for the nutritional benefits but they don't add any flavor so if you don't have them or don't want the texture of chia in your nut butter, leave them out. Also, if you don't have liquid stevia, simply add more maple syrup. I'd probably use 2-3 Tablespoons if I didn't add the stevia, but the amount will depend on how sweet you want the butter.

For the record, it tastes amazing on oatmeal.

And I’m sure it would be a delicious dip for apples or pears, a lovely spread for toast, waffles and pancakes and I know for a fact it tastes good in cookies. Hint hint – there will be a cookie recipe involving this almond butter coming soon. You didn’t think I could go a full weekend without baking some sort of treat, did you?

      So I’ve been looking for almond butter that is lower in fat for a long time now, is the pumpkin in this recipe just an addition or are there less almonds? If the pumpkin is just an addition could you give me a sample ratio to try of almonds to pumpkin to make a lower fat version?
      thank you.

      Looks delicious. Would like to try it. I am with Tess. What do we do without a food processor? What is the alternative?

        You definitely need something high-powered to make the almond butter. What about using a blender?
