  1 rater(s)

This recipe is about to change your life; it’s just that good. This pumpkin seed butter is better than Nutella, peanut butter, almond butter, and cashew butter combined. It’s a wonderfully creamy seed butter, making it an excellent choice for people with nut allergies.

Not only is this pumpkin seed butter delicious, but it also contains beneficial nutrients. Pumpkin seeds are naturally rich in zinc, manganese, copper, magnesium, and iron. They also contain beneficial carotenoids and cell-protecting antioxidants, including vitamin E. One of the primary reasons people eat pumpkin seeds is for their omega-3 content. Omega-3s, such as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), work to fight inflammation and reduce plaque build-up in the arteries.
