Save yourself some money by making this homemade pumpkin pie spice – the cosy, warming flavours of Autumn in a jar!
September marks the beginning of pumpkin season and I couldn’t be happier about it. I LOVE pumpkin. Some people believe the pumpkin spice trend has gotten a little out of hand over the past couple of years, but I am not one of those people.
Give me ALL the pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin spice oreos and pumpkin spice quaker oats. I can’t get enough of it.
how to make homemade pumpkin spice
I came across an American recipe recently that called for pumpkin pie spice. Since you can’t buy pumpkin pie spice in UK supermarkets, I thought I would do a quick google search to see if I could order some online.
My research showed me that it was going to set me back at least a fiver for one teeny little pot that would probably last about 5 minutes. Errr I don’t think so, not for this frugal Scottish lass. I quickly scanned the list of ingredients.
Hang on, I have all these ingredients in my cupboard. I could make it myself and save myself some money!
Making your own spice mix couldn’t be simpler. It’s just a case of mixing the spices together. Hardly any work at all!
For the best tasting pumpkin spice mix, do make sure your spices are as fresh as possible. I wouldn’t recommend using any spices that have been sitting at the back of your cupboard for years!
how to use homemade pumpkin spice
You can use this cosy, Autumnal spice blend in both sweet and savoury dishes.
Save yourself a few pounds and treat yourself to a Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte, use it to make my pumpkin spice chocolate chip granola or these amazing pumpkin cinnamon rolls.
You could also replace the individual spices in these pumpkin spice muffins with 2 teaspoons of pumpkin spice.
