All you really need is pumpkin seeds and a food processor, but the addition of a few extra ingredients like maple syrup and cinnamon add delicious flavor notes that are comforting and just perfect for fall. This spread is delicious served on toast with fresh fruit or jam, stirred into oatmeal, or paired with bananas, gooey dates, or even sweet potatoes! The possibilities are endless.

Pumpkin Seed Butter [Vegan]


For the Pumpkin Seed Butter:

  • 2 cups raw, sprouted, or roasted pumpkin seeds

For the Optional Add-Ins:

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Add pumpkin seeds to the bowl of a food processor and process about 5 minutes, stopping a few times to scrape down the bowl, until a smooth and spreadable consistency is formed (after a few minutes it will form a fine meal, and then after a few more it will transform into a butter).
  2. If desired, add in the maple syrup, coconut oil, cinnamon, and salt, and process a few more seconds, until everything is combined and smooth.


Yields 1 cup pumpkin seed butter.
