Ingredients

  • 500g pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the seeds in a food processor and blitz for 5-8 mins, scraping the sides down as you go. Try not to let it overheat – if the mixture feels too warm, leave it for a little longer between intervals. It should be thick and spreadable. 

  • STEP 2

    To sweeten, mix in the maple syrup, if you like. Put in a sterile jar and chill for up to one week.
