All the flavors of fall, and oh so versatile! Ben McLauchlin of Swerve has whipped up a Pumpkin Butter that’s low in carbs, zero added sugar, and keto-friendly, perfect for stirring into yogurt or oatmeal, spreading onto low-carb scones, whole grain toast or waffles, or even as a topping for grilled pork, fish or chicken.
Makes 3 cups; approximately 24 two-tablespoon servings
- 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
- 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon Brown Swerve
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tablespoon butter or refined coconut oil (melted)
- 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1.5 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix ingredients in a bowl until combined. Place in crockpot on low heat- be careful not to get any on the crockpot sides as you place it into the crockpot. Cook on low setting for three hours, stirring every hour to prevent butter from burning on the sides of the crockpot.
Serve warm or store in fridge for 7 days.
