This Pumpkin Butter comes together lightening fast in the Instant Pot with only a few ingredients! Ditch the store bought stuff, and whip up a batch of this refined sugar free, and oh so delicious Pumpkin Butter!
Don’t mind me as I spend my days slathering this pumpkin butter over everything I love:
Pumpkin Bread, check.
Pumpkin Muffins, check.
Kids morning waffles, check.
An ingredient to tasty spicy and sweet meatballs, check check!
Who knew making pumpkin butter at home could be so easy? And inexpensive. All it takes is a few ingredients, an Instant Pot, and life is made. You’re welcome.
With fall and cool weather in full effect, I crave all the comfort foods and smells of fall. I can never get enough pumpkin! After taking a trip to pick apples, we recently bought a pretty expensive jar of pumpkin butter to slather on breakfasts and desserts. I knew it was packed with sugar, and I also knew that I could make it for a much cheaper price!
So this week I set to work with my Instant Pot.
All it takes is a few simple recipes: canned pumpkin, coconut sugar, apple cider, and spices. That’s it!
So what should you use your pumpkin butter for? So many great possibilities: topping on ice cream, on top of pancakes or waffles, with yogurt and granola, with a fall charcuterie board, or even in savory recipes like pork chops, meatballs or chicken!
Happy fall, friends!
Instant Pot Pumpkin Butter
- 1 14 oz can Pumpkin
- 2/3 cup apple juice or apple cider*
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
Place all ingredients in a 6 quart Instant Pot, and stir to combine. Seal the lid, and ensure the valve is closed.
Select the manual function, and cook on high pressure for 4 minutes. Use a quick release once cooking is complete.
Allow the pumpkin butter to cool completely to room temperature, or store in the refrigerator. Recipe will keep for about 2 weeks stored in the fridge.
*Spiced ciders tend to have added sugar. Use a freshly squeezed apple juice for a Paleo version.
