Better Than Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter

Posted on

When it comes to fall flavors, nothing beats pumpkin butter in my book. Forget pumpkin spice lattes—pumpkin butter is where the real magic happens. And let me tell you about my 5 Minute Pumpkin Butter—it’s incredibly delicious, super simple, and unbelievably easy to whip up! Make a batch ahead of time and keep it in your fridge for those moments when you need a taste of pumpkin perfection. And if you’re a die-hard fan of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter, get ready for a delightful surprise because my version is even better.

Let’s talk about pumpkin butter—it’s one of the tastiest treats ever, in my opinion. I first fell head over heels for it after trying the one from Trader Joe’s a few years back. But here’s the thing: the Trader Joe’s version is packed with processed cane sugar, which isn’t exactly ideal for our health. So, as always, I set out to find a healthier alternative, and that’s how my Healthy Pumpkin Butter came to be!
