Okay, so I am a little obsessed with pumpkin at the moment.
Pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin Cake. Pumpkin Enchiladas even.
If pumpkin is not your thing–sorry, I will share non-pumpkin recipes another day.
Oh and did I mention I think you are crazy?! Just Kidding!
Back to the pumpkin.
So simple. So quick. ENDLESS USES!

I personally love my Maple Pumpkin Butter on Whole Wheat Apple Bread.
Homemade Pumpkin Butter is fall in a bottle–and brings a warming spice to your soul and senses when you eat it.
And did I mention this Vegan and Paleo Pumpkin Butter is sweetened naturally with maple syrup and apple cider. You just can’t go wrong!
Notes on Vegan Pumpkin Butter:
- You can use pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger–just use 3 teaspoons. I personally like more of a cinnamon and nutmeg flavor.
- Yes you can use cooked pumpkin puree instead of canned pumpkin puree. This is one thing I take the convience of a canned product.
- Be sure to use 100% pumpkin puree NOT pumpkin pie filling.
- This will store in fridge for 2 weeks or freezer for 3 months.
- Turn this into Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter by cooking on low for 4-5 hours in the slow cooker.
