Ingredients

  • 3 cups raw pumpkin seeds

  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maple extract

Instructions

  1. In a high speed blender, combine the seeds and nuts and blend until smooth (alternatively this can be done in a food processor but it takes a lot longer and will most likely not get as smooth).
