The taste of pumpkin pie in creamy butter form. This Pumpkin Pie Butter is perfect for spreading, dipping, and topping and it is paleo, vegan, gluten free, and Whole30!
I wasn’t kidding last week when I said I have all the pumpkin recipes for you. I mean what else are you supposed to make in October?
Pumpkin hash, pumpkin chia pudding, pumpkin soup (coming next week!), and now pumpkin butter. Pumpkin butter sounds like a weird name, but I don’t really know what else to call it. It’s like apple butter or almond butter, but in pumpkin form.
Wanna hear a funny story? Last year Michael and I were heading back East for a week and we were spending a few days with my family. I usually give my mom a list of things to buy at the store so I can have some healthy snacks at the house. Almond butter was on the list and she texted me when she was at store and said she couldn’t find it. Then a few minutes later I get a text from her saying…
“oh it’s like peanut butter. I was looking at the butters.” Like butter in the refrigerator section. <insert crying laughing emoji here>
I suggest using fresh roasted pumpkin for this recipe, it tastes so much better than canned. But it is a pain in the a** to cut. I usually ask my boyfriend to do that part. He agrees but I think it is because he is nervous I am going to cut my finger off. So I won’t judge you if you use canned. I have like 6 cans in my pantry right now for when I get lazy.
This spread is pretty dreamy though. It has the consistency of hummus and tastes like pumpkin pie. I have been spreading it on toast and dipping apples in it. Lately, my most frequent way of eating it has been straight up with a spoon.
It’s the best vehicle for the job in my opinion.
