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.
