cinnamon maple pecan butter

Pecan Cinnamon Maple Butter //smbp
Nut butters are pretty amazing, am I right?! I love making my own from scratch, they are super easy to whip up, the most difficult part is waiting for the nuts to turn into butter. When I received my new Magimix (see my review here)  I knew the first two things I wanted to make: smoothies + nut butter. 
I had never made pecan butter before and wanted to give it a whirl- this nut butter is so soft and creamy // a total dream.

Cinnamon + Maple Syrup are my go to add ins when making nut butters- if you know me well, you know my love of all things cinnamon + maple syrup. You can also add raw cacao + cacao nibs to the mix for chocolaty pecan nut butter.

So far my favorite way to enjoy this pecan butter is a big ol' spoonful mixed into my morning oatmeal- sooooo gooood!

 It is equally good on a toasted english muffin or on apple slices sprinkled with sunflower seeds.

Cinnamon Maple Pecan Butter

you will need:
2 cups raw pecans roasted
(roasted in a 350* oven for 8-10 minutes)
1-3 tbsp pure maple syrupdepending on your personal sweetness level
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pure vanilla
1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt

assembly: 
Place roasted pecans, maple syrup, cinnamon & salt in a food processor fitted with an s blade. 
Process for 20-25* / 10-15 minutes, stopping every 5-8 minutes to scrape down the sides and  bottom of processor. Continue this process until pecans turn into butter- smooth & creamy. 
The smooth & creamy pecan butter forms in the last 5 -10 / 3-5  minutes of processing.

Note: do not be alarmed of steam escaping the processor - this is simply steam created from the pecans & the friction of the processor.

*Time varies depending on your processor, this time was based on my Cuisinart, using my Magimix it took 1/2 the time 10-15 minutes.
