Homemade Nut Butter: The Best Cashew Pecan Butter

I have a slight obsession with nut butter

Some form of nut butter makes a daily appearance in my menu line-up.  I love it with fruit, in my oatmeal or straight from the jar on a spoon (which can be really dangerous).  Take a look at it in action below.

Nuts are an amazing way to incorporate healthy fats into your diet necessary for great hormone function and energy supply. The taste is just a lucky byproduct.

This nut butter recipe may change your life. I am not joking…this is delicious. You are going to make it and swear that the sugar fairy dumped loads of sweetness in there when you weren’t looking.

But Pecans…WOW!  Their sweetness really comes through when you emulsify them. Pecans, paired with cashews and a few spices make what many of my friends refer to as “Nut Butter Crack.”
