Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

Pumpkin themed food and drinks are showing up everywhere.  At my house, we’ve enjoyed Pumpkin Spice Lattes, pumpkin pie oatmeal and pumpkin granola (not post-worthy, yet!).  We still have pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, pumpkin pancakes and pumpkin granola bars to make.  Just about all of these recipes call for pumpkin pie spice.  I, of course, have none.  Never fear, pumpkin pie spice is super simple to throw together.

Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

Ingredients for 1 pie (2 tsp):

  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg

Ingredients for 5 pies (10 tsp):

  • 1 T plus 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 tsp Ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Cloves


  1. Add all ingredients to a small air tight container (recycled spice containers work well) and shake well.
