Pumpkin Butter Recipe

pumpkin butter 2pumpkin butter 3Fall is in the air! I get so excited when fall rolls around because that means it’s time for PUMPKIN EVERYTHING! I love all the fall treats and apple cider, apple picking, pumpkin picking, fall fashion and just about everything fall has to offer. The only downside is that it’s followed by winter- which I hate.

This pumpkin butter recipe was inspired by the pumpkin butter that was served with the bread at a restaurant I ate at when I was in Virginia for NTA’s Business Summit this past August. My best friend was nice enough to join me on the 8 hours road trip to Virginia (even though she was not attending the Business Summit with me- best friend award goes to her) and since we’re both pumpkin-obsessed this was pretty much the highlight of our night. We even each bought our own container of it to-go. Since I pretty much know that stuff was not in any way a health food, I got to work on creating my own version made with nutrient-dense ingredients. My first attempt was not the smooth sailing win I expected it to be- the butter rose to the top in the fridge and hardened on top of the pumpkin mixture that remained. My next thought was, “okay, let me add an egg yolk and see if I can emulsify the mixture and make it blend together that way.” Boom. Nailed it. This stuff is delicious and the texture is perfect. This goes great on any gluten/grain-free breads, paleo bagels, crackers, etc. It’s also delicious in your coffee.
