Save money this holiday season by making your own homemade Paleo pumpkin pie seasoning. Enjoy the fragrant notes of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sure sick of spending extra money on specialty spices that contain fillers and additives.
I try and avoid buying specialty spices and blends, just because of the above mentioned. I’ve found a few companies that are organic with no fillers and additives, like Simply Organic. And on occasion, I’ll splurge when I’m short on time.
I ran out of my store-bought pumpkin pie spice blend while making my favorite Paleo pumpkin bread. Needing it in a hurry, I had no time to run to the store with two toddlers in tow, so I made my own.
And that folks, is how this recipe was born.
This recipe only requires four ingredients, most if not all should already be in your spice cabinet.

Basic Staples for Making Pumpkin Pie Seasoning
When it comes to spices in my cabinet, there are a few brands I trust. (And others I wish to stay far away from). I always buy organic spices and make my own blends, like this pumpkin pie seasoning. Organic blends are harder to find, or they are expensive. My top go-to brand when it comes to accessibility and price is Simply Organic.
Cinnamon – There are three different types of cinnamon believe it or not, but the most common one is Ceylon.
Ginger – Ground ginger is dried from the ginger root and has many benefits when consumed; it helps with nausea, motion sickness, and bloating.
Cloves – Ground cloves come from the unopened flower buds of an evergreen tree. Cloves can enhance any baked dish with its aroma and warmth.
Nutmeg – Nutmeg comes from the seed of a dark-leaved evergreen tree. Fun fact, the shell of that seed is made into mace. (The spice not the spray)!
