Pumpkin Spice Almond Butter
Yields: about 1 cup + 2 tablespoons
This just might be the best almond butter I’ve ever tasted! It’s smooth, creamy, and full of cozy spices. Although it tastes wonderful spread across toast or apple slices, my favorite way to eat it is straight from the jar with a spoon! The almond butter will keep for at least two months, if not longer, if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • 2 cups (286g) roasted unsalted almonds*
  • 1 ¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  1. Add the almonds to a high-powered food processor or blender, and blend the almonds until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Add the pumpkin pie spice and salt. Blend until everything is fully incorporated and smooth. Transfer to a glass jar or airtight container, and refrigerate.
Notes: Most stores only sell “whole natural” or raw almonds as their unsalted option. To toast your own, add the almonds to a baking sheet, and bake at 300°F for 8-12 minutes or until fragrant. Cool completely before using in the recipe. Alternatively, lightly salted almonds may be substituted, and reduce the amount of salt called for in the recipe to compensate.

I made my own pumpkin pie spice using the following: 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ⅛ tsp ground nutmeg, and ⅛ tsp ground ginger.

Feel free to adjust the amount of spices and salt to suit your tastes!

You’ll want to use a food processor or blender with very sharp blades and a strong motor. This ensures that the almond butter turns out smooth and creamy without overworking your machine. This is the food processor that I own, and I absolutely love it! It’s worth every single penny, and I use it every day. (And if you check out this blog post of mine, you’ll see 13 other recipes of mine you can make with it!)

For the thickest texture, wait at least 12 hours after refrigerating before dipping in your spoon!
