Pecan Pumpkin Butter

IMG_8317

Umโ€ฆwho doesn’t love any kind of nut butter right? Well in my abode we can’t even have it present because it will be gone before the day ends!

However, I found this lovely recipe that is more of a healthy treat than a “spoon in the jar and feel guilty” kind of deal. It is a quick & simple butter that is not as heavy as most nut butters. Delicious recipe for fall because it incorporates pumpkin – ahhh I love autumn squashes ๐Ÿ™‚

On to this delicious nut butter…

  1. Soak 1C raw pecans for 4hours (drain & rinse)
  2. Combine the following in a food processor: ย soaked pecans, 1C almond milk, 3/4C pureed pumpkin, 3T maple syrup, 2T chia seeds, 1T coconut oil, 1.5t cinnamon, 1/2t ground ginger, 1/4t ground nutmeg & the seeds from half a vanilla bean
  3. Blend til pecan pumpkin butter is smooth

Enjoy it by the spoonful or serve it with a sliced up apple!
