Pumpkin Spice Almond Butter

Pumpkin spice almond butter is a must have for fall! It’s spiced just right and easy to make in a food processor — perfect on top of everything from toast to apples slices this fall!

As a huge nut butter lover, nothing sounded better to me than to combine my two favorite things — pumpkin spice and almond butter into one delighted spread that is perfect and healthy for the season!

Almond butter is easy to make at home (and in some cases a lot cheaper!). My tip for getting inexpensive raw almonds is to pick them up in the bulk section of your grocery store. You can find a lot of different nuts, seeds, and flours (including almond flour!) for a lot cheaper in that section!

To make this pumpkin spice recipe you will process the almonds in a food processor until almond butter starts to form. It may seem like it’s taking a long time, but that’s normal. The almond butter will start forming a few minutes into processing.

When you get to a slightly creamy and drizzle-y consistency, the almond butter will be warm, throw it in the fridge for a few minutes and then eat it on one of the delicious and healthy ways I suggested below!

Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Almond Butter

  • raw almonds
  • coconut oil
  • dates
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla
  • salt

How to Use Pumpkin Spice Almond Butter

The possibilities are truly endless, but here are some of my favorite ways to use this delicious spread!

  • on a pumpkin spice bagel
  • on a pumpkin spice english muffin
  • on pumpkin spice toast
  • on pumpkin bread — like this better than Starbucks healthy pumpkin bread!
  • Mixed into your coffee for a hint of fall
  • in a pumpkin spice smoothie
  • with honeycrisp apple slices
  • with a bananas or berries
  • drizzled on popcorn
  • drizzled on pancakes or waffles
  • on top of oatmeal like these pumpkin flax overnight oats
  • make and A&J sandwich (like a PB & J except with almond butter!)

Almond butter is a good source of healthy fat and protein, both are crucial for fullness and satiety. Pairing it with fruit or a source of whole grains makes it part of a well rounded snack and something you’ll want to reach for at 3pm on a crisp fall day (because it’s pumpkin spice!).

When it comes to snacking, my rule of thumb is something I call the “P & F’ power couple, aka protein and fiber! These two things will make your snack work harder for you and keep you fuller for longer.

Description

Pumpkin spice almond butter is perfect on top of literally anything in the fall! Almond butter is easy to make at home and this pumpkin version is perfect for the season! 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 12 dates, soaked in warm water with the pits removed (omit if you prefer unsweetened)
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 3 tsp. pumpkin pie spice  + more for sprinkling on top 
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • splash of vanilla extract 
  • pinch of salt 

Instructions

1. Combine all of the ingredients except for the coconut oil, and dates in a food processor. Pulse on high. It will take a few minutes for the almonds to start to turn into a creamy consistency.

2. Add the coconut oil in 1 tbsp at a time, and the dates and continue pulsing. ( I had the pulse setting going and did other things in my kitchen in the meantime!) It will roughly take about 5 minutes to get the right consistency, and for the dates to be incorporated.

3. Once it look spreadable, transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge or on your counter for up to a week. Sprinkle more pumpkin pie spice on top of it as you use it!
