30 Days of Renewal – Day 10 – How to Make Pecan Butter

20130429-172943.jpgIf you have never tried a nut or seed butter other then peanut butter then you are in for a treat. Peanuts are not actually nuts, they’re a bean! Which is why those allergic to peanuts may not be allergic to tree nuts. If your kid is a PB&J lover and has a no-peanut policy at school try making your own nut and seed butters at home. Pecan butter is super easy to make and only requires 2 ingredients. I used the grinder blade that came with my magic bullet and it worked perfectly, but any quality food processor should work.


Pecan Nut Butter
• 2 cups of high-quality pecans
• sea salt


1. Roast the pecans by pouring them into a heavy skillet. Set the heat to medium and stir frequently for about 5 minutes.
2. Scoop the pecans into your food processor and blend for several minutes, stopping periodically to scrape down the sides.
3. When the pecan butter is smooth and creamy scoop into a small jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator.

Have some on toast with a few slices of banana and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
