Why this Pecan Nut Butter Rocks 

Are you sold on this raw pecan nut butter yet? Are you gonna try it over your go to cashew butter recipe? If you’re still needing some convincing, no sweat-I’m gonna make you a believer right here and now. Something I that scores major points with most people  in the recipe department is if the recipe is easy.

Well good news here- this delicious nut butter is SO simple to make because it uses minimal ingredients that you may already have kicking around in your pantry. Not only is it easy to make, but it’s super FAST too, so if you’re in a pinch and want to make some nut butter, it’s not complicated at all! As if that wasn’t enough, it’s also downright delicious. Spread this nut butter on ALL THE FOODS- you really can’t go wrong!

How to Make Pecan Butter

Making this delicious nut butter is, like I’ve mentioned, SUPER simple! Make sure you follow all the directions, as you don’t want to skip over toasting the pecans! It adds SO much flavor!

Toast

Set your oven to 350 and let it preheat. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the pecans out on the pan. Let the nuts toast in your preheated oven for about 5-10 minutes, until they smell nutty and are golden brown.

Process

Transfer the toasted pecans to the food processer along with the salt and cinnamon and blend until smooth on the fastest setting. This should take 3-5 minutes. 

Store

Transfer to an air tight container and store at room temperature. Yup- that’s IT!

Recipe Variations

Although this tasty homemade nut butter is absolutely AMAZING all on it’s own, it’s sometimes fun to add in some extras to make it THAT much better! You could add a touch of warmth by adding a dash of cinnamon and a sprinkle of nutmeg to the food processor, or consider pulsing in some chocolate chips for a rich and decadent pecan nut butter!

Top Tips for making Pecan Nut Butter

  1. Use a Food Processor: While a blender will work for this recipe, it’s a little more tricky to scrape down the sides while pulsing. That’s why I recommend using a food processor to make this nut butter.
  2. Be Patient: Nuts can be known to take a while to release their oils when processing so you’ll need to be patient while breaking them down. But don’t worry- in very little time, you will have a smooth and indulgent, delicious homemade nut butter to enjoy!
  3. Scrape down the sides: You will need to stop the processor often to scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula. This will ensure that everything gets broken down evenly so that the nut butter is smooth!

Spread Away 

Are you shocked? I was at first, too- such an easy recipe that results in something that tastes this BOMB can be hard to find. Go ahead and eat this right out of the jar by the spoonful, or check out these ideas to drizzle and spread it on:

How to store Homemade Nut Butter

This nut butter will last up to a month when stored properly. I recommend using a rubber spatula to scoop it into a container, then seal it so that it is airtight. Place it in the fridge and chill until you’re ready to spread and drizzle it on ALL THE FOODS.
