vegan roasted apple + pumpkin butter

for those of you who had an extra long weekend – I hope you are back to your work week feeling rested + motivated today!

today’s recipe is a really easy-peasy and packs some serious flavour + it can be enjoyed as an addition to almost meal or snack.

so here is a vegan roasted apple + pumpkin butter (YUM) that I found courtesy of this website.


 

the recipe made a lot more than this little mason jar, so don’t be fooled.


Ingredients: 

  • three apples (preferably organic)
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (OR as much as you like, I love cinnamon!)

Directions:

  1. set oven to 400 degrees.
  2. halve + core your apples. place on a baking sheet and place in oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Blend all ingredients together in a high-speed blender (or food processor).

I enjoyed mine several different ways…..

  • with some sprouted grain bread, toasted
  • mixed in with some oatmeal
  • added to a smoothie
  • dipped some fruit + crackers (my fav – Mary’s Organics)
  • ate it on it’s own for a snack with some chia seeds

there is clearly no shortage of ways to enjoy this tasty treat!

  1. I look forward to making this Natasha. Looks yummy!!
    Should I peel the apples?

  2. the healthy ginger

    I left the peels on for some fabulous fibre but of course this is optional. Hope you love it as much as I do :)
