Raw Pumpkin Pie Pecan Butter

Serves: 9

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Although I spent most of mine working, I did get a lot accomplished! On top of that we are having amazing weather here! High 60’s, low 70’s and tons of sunshine! It doesn’t get better than that! My favorite kind of weather is the “jeans and hoodie” type of weather! So comfy and relaxing! :)

Besides my total addiction love for almonds, I also have a BIG love of pecans! It’s probably my second favorite nut! I have been eating Artisana Raw Pecan Butter almost every night before bed and as much as I love it, it is darn expensive! So, I knew I had to find a cheaper way to enjoy the same nightly treat! The result, this amazing fall inspired nut butter! It is definitely MUCH cheaper and so much tastier with the spices added in! I hope you enjoy it! Have a great Monday! :)

Fit Ingredients

  • 2 c (240g) raw pecans
  • 1 tbs (14g) coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tbs pumpkin pie spice (adjust to desired taste)
  • Sweetener, optional (I used 5 drops of liquid stevia)

  • food processor

Directions

1. Throw all your ingredients into the food processor and let it go!! :) It should take about 5-7 minutes.

2. Store in a sealed jar in your refrigerator.

Easy as that! This nut butter is raw, which makes it a bit chunkier than a smooth nut butter. However, it does still spread and tastes a trillion times better than any store bought nut butter…and cheaper too! :) Can’t complain about that! I just take my spoon and dive all in! ?
