Pecan espresso nut butter need I say more? I am a huge nut butter addict I literally have five or more jars on hand at all times. I have just recently begun making my own and absolutely love it. It is really fun to experiment with flavors especially during holiday time. I really love this pecan butter because is only has a few ingredients and takes less than ten minutes to make. This recipe is also a great thing to make with kiddos. It gets them in the kitchen and also allows them to have fun, while adding there favorite flavors into a healthy treat.
Pecans have over 19 vitamins and minerals per serving and are a fantastic source of healthy fats. They are nutty, buttery, rich and creamy. Slather this butter on oatmeal, toast, fresh fruit and even sweet potatoes for a savory treat. Get your spoons ready for tasting!
- 3 cups pecans, toasted
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp espresso powder
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp maldon sea salt
- Add roasted nuts to a food processor or blender and blend until a creamy butter forms. This can take up to 10-12 or more minutes. Scrape down sides as needed. Once creamy, add salt, vanilla and espresso powder to taste. Then transfer to a clean jar or container and store in the fridge.
