Keto Maple Pecan Nut Butter takes less than twenty minutes to whip up and is best enjoyed by the spoonful... or as a topping for my keto waffles, pancakes or bread.
To make this nut butter recipe, you'll need a high quality food processor or blender that can handle the work. I use my food processor to make homemade nut butters regularly. Mine is a Cuisinart 11 cup food processor that's been in my kitchen for over ten years. It's been a true work-horse.
If you want a plain pecan nut butter, you can simply omit the flavorings and sweeteners. But, I think you'll enjoy the way the flavors of fall round out the taste of the pecan butter.
We Love Nut Butters
You could use MCT oil, extra virgin olive oil or algae oil as alternatives to the avocado oil. Pecans seem to need a little extra oil to blend up into a nut butter and be creamy. Next time I make this recipe for Keto Maple Pecan Nut Butter, I am going to use MCT oil.
Now, I think I'm going to go get a cup of coffee and a spoonful of this delicious manna from heaven. I just can't wait for you to try this Keto Maple Pecan Nut Butter!
Your New Favorite Nut Butter
Pecans behaved a bit differently than other nuts I've used to make keto nut butter. I had to add more oil than I imagined I would. Add your oil about a half tablespoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency for your nut butter. I'm interested to hear your story with making this keto maple pecan butter.
