A sweet tooth and a hankering for pumpkin are what led me to whip up this yummy concoction last night. I tried to keep it as healthy, low calorie, and low fat as possible so if you want that richer, sweeter pumpkin butter just add evaporated milk/heavy cream and more honey.
16oz canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
2 heaping tablespoons Smart Balance spread
2 tablespoons mild honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon apple pie spice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1. Combine all ingredients well.
2. Bring to a boil.
3. Reduce heat and let simmer for 30 minutes.
Enjoy warm on toast, biscuits, or use it as a dip with graham crackers!
