Pumpkin Peanut Butter

It should be well established at this point that I’m in a serious, long term relationship with peanut butter. Pretty much any recipe that incorporates peanuts will pique my interest, including this light and flavorful variation: pumpkin peanut butter. One taste of this mixture and I fell in love. This is one super-simple recipe that you should definitely try yourself.

Pumpkin Peanut Butter (taken from Chocolate Covered Katie)

  • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp peanut butter (you could also substitute another nut butter if you prefer)
  • sweetener to taste, optional (I included 1/2 tsp sugar)
  • pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients together, with a spoon or in a food processor. If your peanut butter is hard, you might want to warm it up a little, pre-mixing.
