I’ve wanted to make my own nut butter for a while. Once I finally made it, I was so happy that I did. Homemade nut butter has a much fresher taste than store bought. Plus you can control the ingredients.
The key to making nut butter is to first roast the nuts. Roasting them helps to release the oils. Don’t add oil to the nut butter. It is just gross tasting and nasty. Don’t ask how I know. Roasting the nuts is better. Trust me.
Since fall is quickly approaching, I decided to make a pecan pumpkin butter with pumpkin spice. YUM!

Homemade Pecan Pumpkin Nut Butter
You need to keep in the fridge. It should last about 3 weeks if you don’t eat it all soon after you make it.
I really want to make some pumpkin butter. I would have it on top of toast and this nut butter. That sounds so good.
You can use less pecans and more pumpkin seeds if you desire.
