Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter

Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter

You guys it’s happening. Everything is turning up pumpkin spice. It is barely just the beginning of fall and I’ve already heard the infamous PSL muttered a thousand times. Personally, I ain’t a fan but hey, I get it. I get the need to put pumpkin spice and everything nice into everything once fall comes around. I mean have you read the title of this post… guilty as charged!

No, but for reals, it ain’t fall into you have your first delicious bite of pumpkin spice. For me it was this peanut butter that also has some real pumpkin and sea salt thrown in to give a perfectly delicious salty and sweet taste.

It isn’t really fall into you buy ALL the candles from Bath and Body Works either. Oops… sorry bank account. I can’t let fall pass without my whole apartment smelling like ‘autumn’ or ‘vanilla pumpkin cupcake’.

BUT I digress.. back to this pumpkiny pumpkin spice peanut butter. It is so perfect dolloped onto your morning bowl of oatmeal or enjoyed with a banana or apple as a snack. Or, let’s be real, just straight from the jar. So grab a spoon and dig in!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 2 Tablespoons pumpkin
  • 1.5 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 1.5 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Procedure:

  1. Roast the peanuts at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through. You want the peanuts to be toasty brown but not burnt.
  2. Once the peanuts are cooled from the oven, put in the food processor and grind until smooth. This could take anywhere between 4 and 10 minutes. It depends on how smooth of a texture of peanut butter you want.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and grind until blended.
  4. Make sure to store your peanut butter in an air-tight container in the fridge and eat within a few weeks.

Just as a side note – this peanut butter is very adaptable to how you like your peanut butters – if you like more salt add more salt! If you want it more pumpkiny add more pumpkin! It’s totally up to you! I liked the peanuts to be the dominant flavor so I didn’t add as much as the other ingredients.

Oh popcorn how I love thee. I love it when you are buttery. I love it when you are kettle-y. I love it when you are cheesy. I love it when you are spicy. I love it when you are sweet. Oh but I especially love it when you are sweet. I will just eat you up I love you so.

Do you like my ballad to popcorn? I figured it was about time I let them know how much I do truly love them. I mean I did name part of our blog because of them…

Salted Caramel Popcorn

Recently Rose and I have been popping all sorts of delicious popcorn creations in the kitchen. We thought in case there was anyone else out there who possibly loves popcorn as much as us two that we would share one of said recipes for you.

Caramel Popcorn

We created a caramel-melt-in-your-mouth-sweet-and-delicious popcorn. It only seemed right what with all the salted caramel drinks popping up everywhere. Plus, caramel is pumpkin pie spice’s lesser known cousin that sometimes get a bit neglected. (Don’t worry pps lovers we have some recipes for you soon too!) But right now it’s time for the caramel corn.

Bring on the crunchy sweet deliciousness!

Salted Caramel Popcorn

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 3/4 tablespoon butter (I’m sure you could use coconut oil too, but we used butter here)
  • salt

Steps:

  1. Pop the kernels. We used an air popper but you could also do them on the stove. This will make about 5 cups of popcorn so if you have an air popper, be prepared with a big bowl!
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the sugar and the butter on low heat, stirring frequently so the butter melts into all the sugar and doesn’t burn. Stir frequently but not constantly until all the sugar is melted into the butter – about 5 minutes. You want the mixture to stay runny and not start to clump because once this cools, it will start to harden together quickly.
  3. While the mixture is hot, drizzle over your popcorn. I used a spatula to help drizzle.
  4. Salt the popcorn to your liking. We used pink himalayan sea salt and used less than a teaspoon since we wanted a sweeter treat.
  5. Let cool and enjoy!
