This Pumpkin Walnut Butter is the perfect spread for a healthy new year — it’s creamy, it’s sweet and it’s full of flavor.  Pumpkin + cinnamon is a fantastic combination, kind of like how well peanut butter + jelly go together.  But take that pumpkin + cinnamon combo up a notch, add a hint of sweetness and a kick of walnuts, and now you have found a symphony of flavor!

As a reference, 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter will have 180-200 calories and 16-18g fat.  Don’t get me wrong, natural peanut butter is still a healthy option, but sometimes 2 tablespoons just isn’t enough ya know?  😉

  1. This sounds like such a great idea… i’m just a little skeptical because i absolutely HATE raw pumpkin! (i know, i’m crazy) i remember you mentioned that you werent a huge fan of pumpkin either so i may have to try it!

    • Emily-
      Yeah, I’m not a huge pumpkin fan. I think this pumpkin walnut butter tastes bests on prepared sweets/breakfasts… I bought these gluten-free waffles from the grocery store and spread some of this on and it was DELICIOUS! The waffles had a hint of cinnamon in them so they matched perfectly.
      It’s also good in oatmeal with some pure maple syrup. Mmmmmm :)

  4. I love your blog name! So creative. This pumpkin butter sounds delish.

  9. will this work without the syrup?

    • Britain-
      I’m sure it’ll work out just fine, you just won’t get any of the spices or sweetness that’s meant to come from the syrup. I would recommend using 1+1/4 cups of pumpkin instead of 3/4 cup, and adding 1-2 tsp of cinnamon (to taste), 1/16 tsp salt, and ~1/2-1 tsp of stevia extract or ~1/3 cup of pure maple syrup (again, to taste).
      You can always play around with whatever flavors you like :) You can add pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg, you can use sea salt or pink himalayan salt, etc.
      Hope you like the recipe!

  10. Just wanted to let you know that I made this butter (using psyllium husk powder (2 tsp.) in the syrup instead of xanthum gum) and it turned out beautifully! Great recipe, girl! Thanks! <3

  12. Can we substitute the syrup with something we can just buy? Also you do you have other easy/quick walnut recipes. I have ALOT of walnuts

  15. Made this and substituted the butterscotch with a more readily found caramel… still AMAZING but I think I would love even more the butterscotch flavoring. Also, after it was made I just started throwing in little additional random amounts of cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and a little of the SF caramel syrup, but who measures anything in the end…. 😉
    DIVINE recipe- I could (and very well may) eat the whole jar!
