Homemade Pumpkin Spice Mix is an easy addition to your healthy pantry. It also makes for a great DIY hostess gift for Thanksgiving or any fall party you are attending.
I love making my own spice mixes, and since fall is my favorite season… It’s only natural for me to practically fill a bathtub with homemade pumpkin spice mix once September rolls around 😉
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Mix
This is a super easy recipe, and I’m actually embarrassed to even call it a recipe.
To make it a little more special and like it deserves an entire post, ahem, I created this super cute gift tag you can download and print if you’re planning on giving away some healthy homemade pumpkin pie spice this fall.
Simply print it (it’s sized for US letter and prints 6x per sheet) and attach it to a cute jar filled with pumpkin spice mix. Adorable, and the kids can help, too!
What are the ingredients in pumpkin spice mix?
The ingredients for pumpkin spice mix are super simple. All you need are a few ground spices:
Keep in mind that tastes vary, and since I have two little kids my pumpkin spice mix is heavy on the cinnamon.
It’s still PLENTY nutmeg-y, don’t you worry. Just not to the point where my kids would think it’s hot sauce (and keep in mind, one of my little ones thinks cinnamon is spicy 😂).
Also remember that spices DO go bad (they lose their flavor over time), so be sure to check by smelling or tasting a little if you still have all your warm spices leftover from last year.
Now go and fill your bathtub, uhm cute jar, and get baking!
