Vegan pumpkin spice almond butter is so creamy and full of comforting fall flavor! Made with just two healthy ingredients.
LET THE PUMPKIN BEGIN.
Or at least the pumpkin spice. Close enough, right? Pumpkin alone doesn’t taste like anything at all, really. Don’t worry, the real stuff will be front and center later this week!
In the meantime, the SPICE that comes with the pumpkin is what it’s all about. So much rich, comforting fall flavor in those magical spices! And when you pair that with almond butter, it’s practically more than this almond butter obsessed girl can handle.
I’ve told you guys before, many times. I LOVE almond butter. I don’t exactly remember the first time I had it, probably because I likely went into a coma of bliss and was out for a few days.
Seriously though, I discovered it a few years ago and as a former peanut butter lover, I was instantly obsessed. No shade to PB of course, but almond butter to me is just a whole new level of richness and flavor. I love everything about it!
I love making my almond butter at home, with raw almonds only – no oil necessary, and it’ll still be super creamy, trust me! Full of healthy fats, fiber, and other vitamin and mineral goodness.
Blend them in a high power food processor for 20-30 minutes and you’ve got creamy, dreamy bliss to put on your morning bowl of buckwheat, spread on a thick slice of banana bread, or swirl through brownies.
Take it one (super easy!) step further and blend those almonds up with a generous dose of pumpkin pie spice, making all your fall dreams come true.
This vegan pumpkin spice almond butter is a super simple recipe to make at home and have on hand all week for a healthy snack. The comforting spices are the best complement to the almond flavor, and with the creamy texture, it’s seriously out of this world.
I for one will be making approximately 10 batches before fall ends…no shame.
Have a happy, healthy week, friends!
