Tried puting it just on toast instead of butter but couldnt stand the taste. I've used it instead of butter for grilled cheese and its not bad. I plan on using it in my pumkin muffins, bread and soup in place of butter in the coming up months. I think the key is geting it hot/warm so it has more of a peanut butter taste.
Very stiff texture and somewhat bitter taste. Helped to mix it with a little coconut oil. Will look for ways to use in cooking instead of as a spread.
rather chew seeds

As far as pumpkin seed butter goes, this brand is OK, but I'd rather chew the seeds myself.

and is undoubtedly good for me. Lots of natural zinc. I mix a little sesame oil into it to make it taste even better. Good on toast with cinnamon and agave nectar. Or I will sometimes put some broccoli sprouts on top. Yummy either way.
It may be healthy but it made me sick

I eat plenty of pumkin seeds and they are great but they are better left alone as seeds only, when they are made into a butter, the taste becomes more powerful, and it made me sick. I started having chills shortly after eating, my throat started to feel funny. It was also hard to spread and I did not like it in a plastic container. I would recomment you eat raw pumkin seeds in their natural state not in the butter form because the taste is very strong and some may have a not so pleasant reaction like I had.
