So I’ve been seeing pumpkin butter all over the blog world for the past month or so and although I was weary at first, I finally decided that it was time. I had an open can of pumpkin in the fridge so the timing was perfect!
Why have I not tried this yet??
I used Angela’s recipe pretty much to a tee although I used brown sugar and maybe juice from only 1/4 of a lemon.
My house smelled just like a little piece of heaven. Yum!!! 😉
The batch made enough to fill these 3 small jars – 1 for my mom and 2 for me! 😉 …although my co-workers have been dabbling into my mom’s jar this morning. They all love it!…
Now making the pumpkin butter last night was all fine and dandy however I was more excited for this morning to try it in my oatmeal.
I almost ran downstairs after my shower to star making my oatmeal bowl.
I swear this stuff smelled like pumpin pie when I popped open the jar! *drool*
In the mix for today’s bowl:
- 1/2 C rolled oats
- 1 tsp unsweetened unsalted pb
- 2 tsp unsweetened coconut
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 banana
- 2.. or maybe 3… or 4 heaping spoonfuls of pumpkin butter 😉
- skim milk
THAT was a breakfast!
Can’t wait to eat more!
