Homemade Nut Butter Love.

It’s no secret that I love peanut butter.

If I was stranded on a desert island and could only take 3 things, a jar of nut butter and a spoon would be 2 of them. I haven’t quite figured out the 3rd yet. It’s a toss up between bacon and my favorite pair of shoes.

 

 

When I make nut butters at home, I rarely make plain, boring ones. I like fun flavors. I don’t do ‘plain.’ Plain makes me cry. Take a look.

 

 

Salted Chocolate Pecan Butter

This one is my favorite. Don’t hate it because it’s beautiful.

 

 

Pistachio Coconut Butter

This one here may be an ugly duckling, but I promise she makes up for it. The pistachio-coconut combo is a fabulous one. The only way to get rid of the ugliness is to eat the entire batch. It works, I promise.

 

 

Chocolate Cherry Almond Butter

I hate almond butter. There, I said it. I think almond butter is bland, not sweet enough for me, and tastes like hot garbage. But I love this homemade version. Probably because there is chocolate in it.

 

 

Vanilla Cinnamon Pecan Butter

Hello, perfect pecan butter. Aren’t pecans the least healthy nut you can eat? They are kind of like the corn of vegetables. That must be why I love them so much.

 

 

What is your favorite non-peanut butter nut butter? I find that making them at home is quick and delicious. Yes, you need the mother of food processors. No, your mini food processor may not work. But it might catch on fire. As long as you have the proper equipment, the process is fast and painless.

 

 

Any homemade nut butters you are dying to try? I would love to try Ashley’s salt-kissed cashew butter. Her cocoa-coco pnat butter is incredible, too.
