Take it up a notch with this easy Pumpkin Butter Toast! A quick 15-minute vegan pumpkin butter, smothered on your favorite toast, and topped with thinly sliced green apples and chopped pecans! It’s the perfect breakfast, brunch, light lunch, or appetizer for the holidays!
I’ve been in the kitchen cooking all things pumpkin the past few weeks! On the weekends, we’ve been indulging in pumpkin waffles and muffins. My pantry is already stocked with cans of pumpkins.
The one thing I used to hate is leftover pumpkin puree after making a recipe that you hope to use soon, but usually gets tossed out after sitting in the fridge for days.
I’ll be talking more on wasted pumpkin puree in another post coming later this week, but for now, let’s focus on a quick recipe using that leftover pumpkin puree!
Are you looking to use that extra pumpkin puree? Or do you need an easy brunch idea to serve for friends during the holidays? How about an easy festive appetizer?
If you’re nodding your head, then my Easy Pumpkin Butter Toast with Apple and Pecans is the answer!
Why This Pumpkin Butter Toast is so Awesome!
This vegan toast looks, tastes, and feels fancy, yet it’s so simple and easy to make!
Those tart green apple slices paired with sweet and thick vegan pumpkin butter, all on toasted bread, and topped with chopped pecans! What else could you ask for this Fall? It sounds and looks like a menu item you’d be super excited to see at your local cafe right? Now you can easily make it at home and enjoy it all week long!
Using Up Leftover Pumpkin Puree
I developed a recipe for an easy 15-minute vegan pumpkin butter recipe last year. It is super simple to make, requires only 5 ingredients, and takes less than 15-minutes! It has caramel-like consistency, contains no refined sugar, and can be stored in the fridge for the entire week.
My go-to snack in the fall is dipping green apples in this pumpkin butter. I’ll even eat a spoonful of the it for dessert.
The best part about this delicious fridge staple is that it’s the perfect recipe to use up any leftover pumpkin puree. But, I’d even open up an entire can of pumpkin puree for a double batch of this recipe.
Requires Minimal Ingredients
Assuming you have the pumpkin butter already made and stored in the fridge, this pumpkin toast requires only 4 ingredients.
- Pumpkin butter
- Italian bread (or any other favorite)
- Green apple
If you don’t have green apples, another variety will do, but you won’t get that sweet & tart combination that I particularly love in this recipe.
Pumpkin Butter Toast In Under 5 Minutes
Similar to most easy toast recipes, the key is figuring out the best combination and layers. Lucky for you, I did that part. So all you need to do is make some pumpkin butter and spend less than 5 minutes assembling this perfect pumpkin butter toast.
- Toast the bread while you pull out the pumpkin butter, thinly slice the green apples, and chop the pecans.
- Once the bread is toasted, spread a very generous layer of the pumpkin butter.
- Top with thinly sliced green apples and chopped pecans!
Repeat and make another, because trust me when I say one just isn’t enough!
Perfect Breakfast, Brunch, Or Appetizer
These pumpkin butter toasts make the perfect breakfast, brunch, or appetizer.
As I mentioned before, they look and taste fancy. So make a variety of different toast recipes for a fun themed lunch or party. You can also cut the toasts in half for smaller proportions and serve as a side or appetizer for Thanksgiving weekend or your next holiday brunch.

To make this an easy recipe, prepare the Pumpkin Butter ahead of time and store in the fridge.
For best results, spread the pumpkin butter once the toast has cooled to room temperature. The pumpkin butter should be cool from the fridge or at room temperature so it's easier to spread.
Cut the toasts in half for mini or bite-sized appetizers to serve at your next brunch!
