I love this recipe because it is the perfect basic pumpkin nut butter to create countless varieties. I have made cranberry cinnamon and chocolate in the past. What varieties are your favorite?

Enjoy this as a dip, spread, or use as a topping. This is also a great addition to your smoothies or breakfast bowls. This pumpkin nut butter was enjoyed as a dip with a large spread of organic fruits and vegetables.
