Making Pumpkin Spiced Maple Butter?

This CREAMY, fluffy fall delight starts with simmering maple syrup and pumpkin puree to create a pumpkin maple reduction. It then gets a hefty dose of pumpkin pie spice. Oh yes, we’ve been there!

Using a rubber spatula, stir thick maple syrup and pumpkin mixture in a saucepan

After the mixture has cooled, the pumpkin maple reduction is ready to beat with vegan butter until super light and soft!

Drizzling maple syrup on a stack of waffles

Preparation time 25 minutes

Cooking time 5 minutes

Total time 30 minutes

Portions 16 (~2 teaspoon servings)

Class Condiment

kitchen Gluten Free, Vegan

Freezer friendly 1 month

Will it stay? 2 weeks

  • 1/2 cup light (amber) maple syrup*
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie seasoning
  • 1/2 cup softened vegan butter (we love) Miyokos // or sub-raw cashew butter for an oil-free version – the results will be different, but equally delicious!)
  • Add the maple syrup and pumpkin puree to a small saucepan. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it boils slightly, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and bring to a boil. Continue cooking until mixture is reduced by about half (~5-8 minutes). It should coat the back of a spoon without running down the sides – the texture should look like thick caramel sauce.

  • Once thickened, remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the pumpkin pie seasoning. Pour the maple/pumpkin sauce into a heatproof bowl. Chill the sauce in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes until it has cooled and has thickened further.

  • Once the maple/pumpkin sauce has cooled, remove it from the refrigerator and set it aside.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, add the softened vegan butter. Beat the butter on high for about 30 seconds with an electric mixer. Then add the maple/pumpkin sauce and beat again until very light and fluffy. Spoon the maple pumpkin butter into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

  • It is delicious on pancakes and waffles, a fresh biscuit or a slice of toast!

*Light (amber) maple syrup gives the best flavor, but dark maple syrup is also good.
