This week is all about blogging. (Read about What to Expect at Your First Blog Conference).

So, as I was deciding what recipe to post this week my mind went straight to pumpkins.

Why?

Bloggers LOVE pumpkins.

How do I know this?

At this very moment, there are tens of thousands of bloggers all over the internet posting pumpkin activities, editing photographs of pumpkins, and pinning pumpkin-flavored recipes.

Hmm… I wonder if the upcoming Fall season has anything to do with it? (Read about My Fall To Do List and Free Fall Activities to Do with Your Baby).

Well, I’m jumping on the pumpkin bandwagon!

Since I like my recipes healthy and easy, I have decided to share my pumpkin butter recipe.

This addicting spread is a healthier alternative to butter or jelly on toast. It would also be delicious mixed in your morning oatmeal!

I received my inspiration from Very Best Baking’s pumpkin butter, but changed it up so W could eat it with me (i.e. took out the sugar).

So, if you are in the mood to get into the Fall Spirit, try out my sugar-free, guilt-free pumpkin butter!
