Coconutty Pumpkin Butter

Out of all the festive fall foods, from cider to apples to pie to yams, my all-time favorite part of this time of year is two words: pumpkin butter. Before I became health-conscious, I could literally eat half a jar of TJ’s pumpkin butter without a second thought, not even blinking at the sugar counts. Now, I can still eat half a jar, because I’ve experimented with many a can of pumpkin to find the perfect recipe that is still healthy while being sinfully delicious.

My conditions:

1.) It had to be creamy (insert coconut butter and oil)

2.) It had to be low sugar (insert a bit of agave)

3.) It had to be balanced! (insert Pumpkin Pie Spice)

So…I finally came up with this:

Coconutty Pumpkin Butter


1 cup canned pumpkin

2 T. agave

1/2 T. coconut oil

1.5 T. coconut butter (I used Artisina!)

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (more to taste)


Warm up your coconut oil and butter either on the stove, in the microwave, or by placing your jars until warm water. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until mixed well. You can also use a whisk

Besides eating this bliss straight from the jar, I give it as gifts, spread it over toast, top off oatmeal, and make PB and P sandwiches. Anyway you use it, it’s sure to be a winner:)
