DIY: Pumpkin Pie Spice

Pumpkin Pie Spice
I adore all things pumpkin and it’s pretty much the best thing that fall brings! Unfortunately, Joel doesn’t share in my enthusiasm but alas I still go on the hunt every fall for a few new favorites to add to my arsenal.

When I went to whip up a new one, I came up empty on pumpkin pie spice. I figured it would be easy enough to make so I did a quick search and came up with many options for a DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice mix.

I had all the required ingredients (and always do), so why was I buying the stuff? I won’t be anymore. This tasted just like the store-bought mix and is much cheaper to mix up yourself.

You can adjust the amounts according to your taste. I love cinnamon so I may up the amount of it next time to see what I like better.

This inspired me to feature more DIY recipes for simple mixes or items from the grocery store that are so much easier, cheaper and/or healthier to make at home. So be on the lookout for more DIY’s around here!
