How to make homemade pumpkin almond butter
Now the key to making this almond butter recipe so good my friends is roasting the almond first! This little step is crucial to take the flavors to the next level. Roasting almonds really enhances their flavor and brings out the nutty aroma that makes almond butter taste so good. Unless you are adhering to a raw diet, please do not skip this step. I promise it’s so worth it!
Add almonds to a food processor and blend until smooth.
Next, add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and blend until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

It’s delicious on toast, with apple slices, or even celery sticks. It’s also delicious from the spoon, but if you’re like me and don’t have self-control, I don’t recommend because this almond butter will disappear.
If that’s your style though go ahead, you do you!
I’m a big fan of this fall favorite flavor and this pumpkin spice almond butter recipe is where it’s at. This comforting spread is not only healthy, but literally tastes like the inside of a pumpkin pie.
