Looking for an alternative to Peanut Butter? Here it is! I can’t rave enough about how good this is. Even the toddler kept coming up to me as I was making it saying, ‘num-num’.
It was easy-peasy in the kitchen and SO much cheaper to make myself. It almost makes me want to shake my finger at all those companies charging outrageous prices. I saw a nut butter going for 21.oo at whole foods the other day. seriously.
I bought these pecans in bulk at Costco for 15.00 per 2 lb. I used about 1/3 of the bag (3 cups) so my tub of pecan butter cost me roughly 5.00$.
Measure out 3 cups pecans (whole, halved, whatever…) into food processor.
Turn it on 🙂 and let it run for a good bit (5 minutes or more).
You made need to stop and scrape down sides a few times when it’s crumbly. Don’t worry if it looks like this:
Slowly add 1/2 tsp (or more to taste) Sea Salt
Slowly add 1 tsp Cinnamon.
Pour in 1 TBSP melted Coconut Oil for smoothness and a good measure of MCT‘s 🙂 Though it will work just as well without.
Enjoy! Let me know if you try this at home
