PUMPKIN SEED MATCHA BUTTER
(Makes 1 Cup)
2 cups of hulled pumpkin seeds
2-2 1/2 tbsp organic rice malt syrup (add according to taste)
1 tsp Matcha powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1. Preheat oven to 150 °c
2. Roast hulled pumpkin seeds for 5-7 minutes until slightly golden in colour. Remove and let them cool down.
3. Process the seeds in a food processor/ high-speed blender for approximately 15 minutes scraping down the sides at frequent intervals. The pumpkin seeds will turn from ground flour to paste and finally, to a smooth and creamy spread.
4. Add the rest of the ingredients towards the end and store the pumpkin seed matcha butter in an airtight jar. It can last 3-4 weeks in the fridge.
