Homemade Pumpkin Butter

September 26, 2011

Right after apple butter, pumpkin butter is my all time favorite spread. I swear, you can use it with everything - spread it on toast, stir into oatmeal,  in cookies, for filling pate a choux, in toaster pastries and handpies! Naturally allergy free and super easy to make, why not try your hand at homemade pumpkin butter? Here are three of my favorite versions, all gluten free, dairy free and vegan and super simple -- as in, put ingredients in a pot and stir!

Favorite Pumpkin Butter Recipe
With a freebie recipe for pepita (pumpkin seed) granola! If you do plan on making the granola, be sure to use certified GF oats from a trusted supplier.

Spiced Pumpkin Butter
With a healthy dose of ginger and fresh apple juice, this recipe bears a spread with a truly rich and complex flavor.

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter
Even easier than stirring at the stove, throw everything into your slow cooker, stir and walk away. Hello, easiest recipe ever!
