Easy Pumpkin Seed Butter Recipe

Easy Pumpkin Seed Butter Recipe

Improved Energy Plus Stress Busting Minerals

As you can see below, it’s easy to follow these steps and make this soaked/sprouted pumpkin seed butter recipe at home.

Pumpkin seed butter is a great protein fat that helps to keep your blood sugar strong, your energy up and provides stress-busting minerals like magnesium and zinc!

Instructions

  • Start with organic pumpkin seeds. I love Styrian pumpkin seeds because they are extra-rich in magnesium, the calming, cravings-busting, stress-busting, sleep improving mineral. Vivapura brand is a good choice for raw, organic Styrian pumpkin seeds.
  • Fill a glass or stainless steel bowl with water, add the pumpkin seeds (8 – 16 oz) and add 1 tsp of sea salt per 8 oz. of pumpkin seeds. Cover with water and add a lid or cover with a plate. Leave this on your counter top to soak for 8 – 12 hours. Soaking or sprouting your nuts and seeds removes the phytic acid that makes them hard to digest and steals your minerals! Soaking makes them much easier to digest all around.
  • Drain and rinse the seeds, then put them in your food processor with the s-blade or your high speed blender. Whiz up until smooth. Some people add a little organic pumpkin seed oil or organic extra virgin olive oil to get a creamier texture. I like it really thick, so I just use the pumpkin seeds themselves.
  • Add 1 tsp. of sea salt and taste. Add a bit more if you want more. Use real sea salt, not toxic table salt. Real sea salt is a great source of trace minerals.
  • Enjoy! You can store this in a glass jar. I use recycled glass jars of coconut oil or nut butters. Store in your refrigerator for a week or freeze in your freezer for a couple of months. It will thaw quickly when you are ready to take it out of the freezer.

Ideas & Alternatives

  • Smooth onto celery sticks or lettuce leaves for an on-the-go snack.
  • Mix into salads instead of cheese or croutons.
  • Use as a dip for carrots.
