Super Easy Pumpkin Almond Superseed Butter


Happy first FRIDAY of September!! Seriously, when did that happen and where did August go? I feel like this all happened at once, just last week it was July and all the sudden now we are back to school.  Craziness.

I hate to say it and I’m sure it’s just a bit too soon but all this talk of fall has gotten me in the mood for, you guessed it, PUMPKIN.  I really do love fall, everything apple/pumpkin and all but I swear I’m not crazy obsessed.  Just hoping my fall food cravings bring a bit of cool weather our way.  And I have to say, I’m most excited for pumpkin!

 Just to clarify, pumpkin is not a vegetable, it is a fruit.  In fact, it’s actually considered a berry.  I only know this because I googled it and obviously, google is never wrong.  

I chose to go with pumpkin over say, apples for this recipe because it’s just more my jam (pun intended).  Plus the combo of almond butter blended with pumpkin puree is absolutely excellent spread on some fresh picked apples, it’s like a fall flavor explosion in your mouth. 

I also chose to keep this recipe SUPER SIMPLE.  Honestly, you could (should?) totally use raw almonds and make the butter from scratch but let’s be real, this multi-tasking mama ain’t got time for that! 

Instead, I decided to skip that step and simply use raw almond butter straight outta the jar then used a food processor (NOT A BLENDER) to mix the pumpkin puree in along with chia and flax seeds to make this fall inspired fruit butter just that much more super! šŸ˜‰
