Easy 5-ingredient pumpkin apple butter lightly sweetened with maple syrup and apple juice. Perfect to add fall flair to any breakfast, dessert, or snack.


  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup all-natural apple-juice or apple cider
  • 2 TBSP pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice


  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and whisk with a fork to combine. Bring the mixture to a low boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer for ~30 minutes, stirring often.
  2. Allow to cool completely, then divide pumpkin apple butter between glass (canning) jars and seal tight. Store Pumpkin Apple Butter in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.


*If you have the time and want to simmer for more than 30 minutes, the extra time will only deepen the flavors. I found that mine tastes great after 30 minutes, though!
