How To Make Pumpkin Seed Butter


Prep pumpkin seeds: Preheat your oven to 340 degrees F / 170 C and spread your pumpkin seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet. 


Roast pumpkin seeds: Cook the pumpkin seeds for 10 to 15 minutes or lightly golden. Toasting seeds improves their taste and texture. Just be careful not to burn them. 


Process roasted pepitas: Let the pumpkin seeds cool and then pour them into a high-speed food processor or a high speed blender like a Vitamix.


Scrape & repeat: Scrape down the sides of the bowl and repeat the process for a total of fifteen minutes or until the mixture has turned into a smooth pumpkin seed paste.


Season: Add a pinch of salt to the paste and blend for another minute to incorporate.
