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

Oh delicious post. Nut butter, spoon…I’d go with bacon. You probably won’t need the shoes ;) I think I told you this last time you posted nut butters…but I made a cinnamon walnut- I want to make it again. Delicious. Maybe add a little maple to it as well this go round
Have you ever had MaraNatha No Stir Almond butter? That stuff is very delicious and I can eat it by the jar full.
I have! Just not really a fan of almond butter.
I’ve only ever tried one almond butter thus far and I didn’t really like it. So I’m not sure which nut butter I like the best aside from pb! Your flavored nut butters look so awesome though!
Ok, do I live under a rock? I’ve been a making my own almond and peanut butters but I haven’t played around with flavors. That being said, my brother gave me some amazing local honey yesterday and I’m now thinking honey peanut butter sounds incredible. Thanks for the inspiration!
That is a fabulous idea!
I never tried to do my own … which is stupid since it’s way more cheaper and probably delicious! Will try
I would love to try and make some chocolate almond butter. I have not made any at home, but as part of our from scratch weekends, I plan to make some soon.
Chocolate Cherry Almond Butter?!!! I must have missed that one! Oh no. But now, I know. This could be bad. Very, very bad :|
That chocolate cherry almond butter is just calling to me.
This all looks delicious… but no matter the nut butter, I’m a plain PB gal.
I know… boring…
I say we call a truce – You lay off me about the brie and I won’t verbally abuse on your own blog for now liking almond butter :wink: Maybe if I weren’t too lazy to clean my food processor, I would make some of these outstanding nut butters. The coconut pistachio looks so intriguing. Pecans are my favorite nut too, so don’t feel bad!
Actually, I am here to report that you definitely CAN use your mini food processor to make nut butters. I’ve done it several times (and made a ton of awesome nut butters like chocolate hazelnut butter, honey cashew-coconut butter, and gingerbread cookie walnut butter, etc), and while the mini sometimes gets very cranky with me, he hasn’t yet set on fire, even after all the duress I’ve put it under. You just have to make sure you don’t overload him, and give him plenty of water breaks. Like an athlete in training….
Oh that is great news!
P.S. LOVE that you would rather have bacon or shoes on said island instead of Mr. How Sweet. Haha!
I’d have to say the salted pecan butter would be my favorite. Because, well, sugar + nuts + chocolate + salt = love. I wish I had a food processor that was actually up to the task!!
LOL! “Hot garbage.” Wow, you seriously hate almond butter! I know this is crazy, but I’ve never tried it! And what are your favorite pair of shoes, btw?
Don’t make me choose!

I mix honey and cinnamon into my peanut butter all the time. If I had a money tree I would eat cashew butter like it was my job.
Wow, all of those look great! And it’s refreshing to see someone NOT sing almond butter’s praises…I mean, it’s good, but I like peanut butter SO much more.
Who needs a spoon?! Use your finger then you can take bacon and the shoes! I made Ashley’s Maple Cinnamon Almond butter and it is delicious. I also make plain cashew butter that my husband devours.
You are one smart cookie.
I love Ashley’s maple cinnamon almond butter. I add some vanilla while roasting the almonds and it is delicious. Actually, I usually just roast the almonds that way to eat whole :)
Almond butter is my absolute favorite!!! But I am a crunchy girl…I don’t like smooth nut butters. A texture thing??
i hate almond butter too…unless it has a ton of sugar and flavor, i’m not touching it. well, unless it’s on carrots. then it’s good.
OMG I thought I was the only one on the planet who hated almond butter. I’m totally going to try making your chocolate cherry almond butter. I should probably try other varieties before completely writing off all nut butters that aren’t peanut…
I think the Vanilla Cinnamon Pecan is so good. Making your own is such a great way to have variety.
I have been wanting to make my own nut butters so badly but I don’t have a food processor even close to powerful enough! It is on my birthday list though :)
I am totally going to try that salted pecan butter! I love salt, pecans, and chocolate. It just seems natural ;)
Nut butter has been a huge aversion to me since being preggo, but that chocolate pecan butter looks really good!!!!!!!
I just bought raw almonds for some nut buttery goodness!
You’re speaking my language with the vanilla cinnamon!
Oh I need to try this! I think half of my diet is made up of nut butter!! :)
I’m glad someone agrees with me about almond butter! If nut butter isn’t sweet, what’s the point??
Great idea to make it at home!
BOOKMARKED. No matter how much Skippy my mother buys, I will insist on making my own. I’ve never tried anything but PB!
mmmm…your nut butters look so amazing :)
I love almond butter… especially smooth maranatha! I guess that is cheating to buy it…but it is so good hehe. I also like justin’s honey almond butter or maple almond butter. Soooo good.
I’m still trying to figure out how to combine caramel and PB or butterscotch and PB into a tasty dessert.
That vanilla pecan cinnamon butter looks amazing!!
I do not own a food processor, but I might buy one just from looking at this post. Seriously, the salted chocolate and vanilla ciinnamon pecan butters are making my mouth water. Yum.
I’d go with 2 jars of PB and a spoon :)
YUM! These all look fabulous. I’ve been meaning to make my own nut butters and these all look so perfect, especially the chocolate cherry almond butter! It might be dangerous for me to have a jar of that in my house.
wow! I feel hungry :)
I will take any kind of nutbutter but have been loving Cinnamon Vanilla Sunflower Butter.
I’m crazy over nuts so I’m lovin all these butters baby!
LOL about the mini food proc! Thanks for the shout out ;) Yummmmm to fancy nut butts!
You are killing me with these photos of nut butter! The salted chocolate pecan butter looks pretty spectacular. I’ve never actually tried making my own, I should get on that!
I’ll pick the pecan one! But I’m also in a walnut craze that the moment. Are walnuts used for this kinda thing too?
That looks so good!!! I have to say Shoes… : ) …but peanut butter is the number one thing that goes at my house!!!
*kiddo giveaway today!
One order for the Vanilla Cinnamon Pecan Butter please. MMM that would be so good on cinnamon raisin bread.
I knew you made these but I didnt fully realize how many varieties you have! NICE
Oh when i was with marla yesterday she said she’s friends with picky-palate and i went to her site and you were like her first commenter, should have known LOL I guess she’s also a so cal girl.
Off to lift & dentist, crazy day :)
hahah I love that analogy that pecans are the corn of vegatbles! i acutally don’t know how pecans rate to other nuts, but they are darn good! you know what I love? the salt and sweet pecans from TJ’s! OMGGGG
The pistachio-coconut nut butter looks amazing! Or rather, I bet it tastes amazing. The green color is definitely a bit ominous. :)
Okay…honestly, how is it that you do not weigh like 132909243098 pounds???? I know if I could conjure up stuff like that, I’d be an elerphant because my lack of self control would cause me to demolish every last morsel of that quicker than you can blink :) Haha. You’re SO talented!
