Pecan Coconut Butter

Pecan Coconut Butter

  • 1 (7oz) bag of coconut flakes
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 2-3 tablespoons almond oil (or coconut oil or walnut oil, etc.–some kind of nut oil will do)
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I used coarse sea salt-gives it a little more crunch!)
  1. Grab your handy dandy food processor!! Don’t have one? You’re dumb. CHRISTMAS PRESENT IDEA!!
  2. Throw in your coconut flakes and turn your food processor on for 3-5 minutes or until coconut flakes and pulsed down and you have a creamy coconut butter. Sometimes the flakes are just a little different and you’ll get more of a chunky butter so either try pulsing it for a bit longer or don’t worry about it too much, you will be adding lots more stuff so it’s not a huge deal.
  3. Add in your pecans and turn your food processor back on until pecans are completely pulsed down.
  4. Now while your food processor is running, start slowly adding your oil until it is to your preferred consistency. I like mine a bit more chunky than totally oily but it’s up to you.
  5. Now while the food processor is STILL running, add your vanilla, salt and honey to it as well.
  6. Mix until well combined. Add a bit more oil if needed.
  7. Eat. I eat mine with a spoon but you can always eat it with fruit if need be.
*Store in refrigerator. Your pecan coconut butter will harden up (just like coconut oil does) so if you want it softer, put in microwave for a little to soften it up.
