Is it just me or does every recipe posted at this time of year require Pumpkin Spice Mix?! I spent ages hunting it down in the supermarket, and then realised how much easier and cheaper it is to make your own!
It’s so much more simple than I thought, and you’ll probably already have most of the ingredients in your pantry. Feel free to adjust the amounts of each spice to your own taste preferences, for example adding a little more cinnamon or extra ginger!
This Pumpkin Spice Mix works beautifully in all the autumnal treats I’ve been experimenting with lately and sharing on @elibrechernutrition – try adding it to these Chocolate Sweet Potato Cups or this Pumpkin Pie Porridge. I can’t wait to share more pumpkin-spiced recipes with you very soon!
