Pumpkin Spiced Almond Butter

filed under: dessert · snacks

Fall all in one bite. Seriously, nothing could be better. I’ve been trying to find fresh new takes on fall’s favorite flavors and this is one of the best and easiest. I had to restrain myself from eating the whole batch all at once. Something so delicious (and nutritious!) deserves to be shared.
Note to self: always make extra! Pumpkin Spiced Almond Butter is like a cheater’s pumpkin pie; all of the flavors of fall’s favorite pie but only 5 minutes to make!

I even brought it into work and completely wowed my (skeptical) coworkers. I’m going to make a raw nut and date crust next time and eat it as a no-bake pie.

Ah, it’s official…I’m drooling. Aren’t you?

A routine snack of mine is almond butter and apples, but sometimes it’s too mundane and not sweet enough for my major sweet tooth. That’s why I love this dip paired with seasonal apples or slathered on a piece of toast as I’m rushing out the door in the morning. Pumpkin Spiced Almond Butter does the trick, filling me up with healthy fats and protein, and supplying just enough of the sweetness I crave. It’s equally as good dolloped on top of a hot breakfast cereal (try my simple breakfast quinoa), and of course, enjoyed right off the spoon.

I warned ya, this stuff is addicting! Expect it won’t last long in your fridge.

      So true! You can definitely mix the ingredients by hand, but I like to make it in the food processor because it whips the almond butter and pumpkin into a really creamy consistency-more so than just by hand. Either way, go with what’s easiest for you!

    I’ve just been dreaming about whipping out my food processor again to make almond butter, which is why I stopped to click your post when I stumbled across it on Foodgawker. I’ll be making almond butter today, might stop by the store to grab a can of pumpkin puree (which–shocker!–I haven’t even used this season yet). Lovely idea!
