Creamy Pumpkin Seed Butter
Magnesium helps regulate muscle contractions and is commonly recommended for treating muscle cramps. But how much magnesium should you be consuming on a daily basis, and what are some natural food sources of magnesium? Read about all of this in my previous blog post. Here is a magnesium rich recipe for you to enjoy.
2 cups raw pumpkin seeds
1-2 tsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spread the pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden.
Cool for 15-20 minutes.
Put the pumpkin seeds in a food processor.
Run the food processor for approximately 4-5 minutes, until the pumpkin seeds begin to have the texture of butter. If necessary, stop the food processor and scrape the sides.
Continue running the food processor for another 2-5 minutes until the pumpkin seeds have the texture of butter. Add some of the oil, as needed, until the desired consistency is obtained.
