This recipe is insane. Insanely awesome.
Smooth, creamy, protein-packed, and slightly sweet, this easy recipe is wonderfully delicious.
All you need is some pecans, a few ingredients, and a food processor to make this yummy (yet healthy!) recipe. Without further ado…
Homemade Pecan Butter
- 3 cups of unsalted raw pecans
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 1 Tbl. brown sugar
Dry roast the pecans. You can do this in either a skillet or an oven. I put them in the oven on 350* for about 15 minutes. Once they are slightly crunchy and fragrant, you know they are done.
Next, in a food processor, pulse the pecans, cinnamon, sea salt, and brown sugar. Pulse until it is a thick, yet smooth consistency.
Store in an air-tight container and put it in the refrigerator for future use.
This nut butter is very versatile, and addicting. I put it on my english muffin for breakfast. So good! My mom made a PB&J with it (pecan butter and marmalade). She liked it, too.
Now it’s your turn:
- What is your favorite nut butter?
- Do consider yourself more of a baker or a cook?
Until next time,
