Spreadable fall, ya’ll. That’s basically what it is.
I’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to make this nut butter. You see, I always wait for Kroger to have their bulked nuts on sale. Nuts are expensive, so when I can snag a few bags on the cheap, I do!
This nut butter is one of my favorites! It’s right up there with my Banana Nut Bread Butter. It does’t have a punch-you-in-the-face pumpkin flavor, but it’s nice and subtle with the nuts being the star. I think it’s perfect. You could add more pumpkin pie spice if you’d like and even use whichever nut you favor; just straight pecans would be lovely. Either way, you can’t go wrong. Only needing 3 ingredients, a high powdered appliance, and 10 minutes to spare, you’ll be enjoying this fall flavored favorite in no time.
What will you spread it on?

• 1 lb mixed nuts, roasted & unsalted
• 4 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
• 1/4 tsp sea salt
• In a high powered blender or food processor, add the nuts and blend for a few mintues until a nut butter consistency is formed. (Scraping the sides as needed).
• Add the salt and pumpkin pie spice and blend for another minute.
• That’s it! Store in an air tight container (like a mason jar), and in a cool, dry place.
Optional: Warm the nuts in a skillet on medium heat until fragrant (this helps with the blending process).
Refrigeration not necessary as the salt is a natural preservative.
Mix before serving, if needed, due to natural separation.
