November is pumpkin spice season…. And if i am honest, i have never actuall tried a pumpkin spice latter… or pumpkin spice anything. Or…. now when i am writing this, i think i actually have tried a pumpkin spice latte when i was in Lisabon 3 years ago.
In the U.S there seems to be pumpkin spice everything during October-December, and it hit me that pumpkin spice peanut butter would be an amazing idea. I am all about combining 1 or 2 delicious things and making it into something even more delicious.
I have posted how to make your own peanut butter HERE, as well as a video on my instagram. It is super simple, and you can make it just using peanuts, but i personally add a little oil and salt to get the right texture. As well as roasting the peanuts before hand to give more flavour.
You can of course make this spice mix and use in other dishes, such as PS oatmeal which i made and it was delicious. Or why not make some PS cookies, or some PS nice cream. You can also make this using another nut such as almonds or cashews. I just used peanuts as that was what i had at home.
If you want alot of spice mix, i recommend you double this recipe. As i was just trying out this spice mix combo i just made a small batch, but it did disappear a little too quickly so need to make a new batch!
Pumpkin spice mix:
1/2 tbsp gingerpowder
1,5 tsp nutmeg (powder)
1 tsp all spice
1 tsp clove (powder)
Mix together and store in a container or small spice jar.
To make the peanut butter i used 400g salted and roasted peanuts. Added to a food processor, along with 2tbsp pumpkin spice.
Mix until crumbly/almost smooth and then add a little neutral oil to thin it out.
Mix until the desired consistency!
(Note, you can add a little brown sugar or vanilla if you want to make your PB sweet 👌 you can also make this using another nut!)
Store in a clean glass container. Try to avoid double dipping i.e use a clean knife/spoon, this is to avoid bacteria growth in the peanut butter! Should store fine up to 2 weeks in the fridge… if you don’t use the oil it won’t store as long.
And there you have your own pumpkin spice peanut butter…. eat, enjoy and don’t forget to let me know if you try making it!
