Paleo + Whole30 Homemade Pecan Butter
Paleo + Whole30 Homemade Pecan Butter Recipe – Made in your food processor in 5 minutes! The most delicious nut butter you’ll ever try. Keto, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, sugar free, vegan, clean eating, real food.
I have a new obsession, and it’s kind of all I think about all day long.
Homemade pecan butter!
This is hands down my now absolute favorite nut butter. Because of the intense, nutty flavor of pecans makes this nut butter irresistible. Pecans are hands down my favorite nut.
Why is this not more prevalent in stores?! Why have peanut butter when you can have pecan butter?
On a whim, I made it at the end of my January Whole30. I wanted an apple and almond butter, but was out of almond butter AND almonds. Luckily I had pecans!
I roasted the pecans to make them extra nutty. Then blended them in a food processor with some salt. 5 minutes later I was eating the most insanely delicious nut butter of my life!
I love how quickly the pecans blend up! When I make almond butter it takes 50-60 minutes and more poor food processor seems like it’s going to explode. I like 5 minutes much more.
You can make the pecan butter in your vitamix too! I just prefer my food processor because it is easier to scrape out.
Can’t wait for you to try my new favorite paleo, whole30, keto, vegan, gluten free, grain free, sugar free, clean eating snack!

OMG! I can’t even handle the goodness of this treat! I love that tastes lovely’s recipes make me want to swim the goodness of her food. Seriously! If having fresh, warm nut butter is not reason enough alone to make this recipe (I mean, come on!!) then it must be the ease and deliciousness that it is! Make it! enjoy it! Love it!

Sounds like you like nut butter as much as me Leslie! Isn’t homemade to die for? I don’t think I will ever buy it again. It is so delicious and so much better than store bought!
I had no idea that making nut butters was so easy and SO good. I have tried others but this is my favorite! So creamy and flavorful. I do not add any salt but I like a splash of maple syrup. The only problem with this recipe is that I want to sit down and eat the whole jar with a spoon, that would be ok, right? :)
So happy you liked my pecan butter Heather! I know Heather, who would have thought it was so easy and delicious. By the way, I frequently sit and eat it with a spoon! LOL!
Not going to lie, I really am not a fan of almond butter and peanut butter just gets old after a while. I have yet to find a store-bought but butter that I enjoy. I do, however, love pecans, and after receiving a food processor for Christmas, I figured I really can’t lose by making this pecan butter.
I knew it was going to be great because I have yet to be disappointed by anything on this site, but man, I am blown away at how good this tastes! And at how was this was to make. If I could give this more than 5 stars, I totally would!
Yeah! I am so happy you liked my pecan nut butter! Congratulations on getting a food processor for Christmas. My goodness you will get a lot of use out of it! I too love the pecan butter and love how easy it is to make. There is just something about fresh made nut butter that is unlike anything you can buy in the store. I so appreciate your feedback and am thrilled you liked it! I am also glad you have enjoyed some of my other recipes!
So easy and so yummy, I had no idea. With fruit (banana or apple) on a rice cake or on a spoon. Also delish drizzled on homemade oatmeal. No more store bought nut butters in our house!
I just made this and cannot believe it was so easy! If you buy the pecans in bulk with a reusable container, perfect zero waste swap, too!
I am so happy you liked my pecan butter Ashleigh! Isn’t it amazing how easy it is to make? I was shocked the first time I tried it. I think it may be my favorite nut butter, it’s so rich and tasty. I am glad you are able to buy pecans in bulk. You will surely make good use of them!
Ok, I cannot stop eating this hot right from the jar!! I’m obsessed and I haven’t even put it on anything. SO simple to make, and this recipe fits perfectly in my Mason jars :) It’s hard to believe this is GOOD for me! What?!
Thank you for your very nice comment Heather. It sounds like you like my pecan butter as much as I do! I think it is my all time favorite! Even better that it is a healthy treat, so enjoy!

So glad to hear pecans are your favorite nut… ours, too! …and yes, pecan butter is amazing and full of nutrition. Did you know that pecans have antioxidants, calcium, choline, copper, fiber, iron, magnesium, mono & polyunsaturated fats, oleic acid, phytosterois, omega-3 fatty acids, phosphorus, vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), vitamin B3 (Niacin), vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid), vitamin B6, vitamin B9, vitamin E, and zinc? In fact, pecans have more vitamin E than any other nut!!! …And pecans are the only tree nut native to America! That is why pecans are called “The original SuperNut!” by the American Pecan Council, a tagline recently approved by the USDA. One more thing, pecans will last three month un-refrigerated, six months refrigerated, and one year in the freezer. We just thought your readers would like to have some fun facts. We have plenty more… but space is limited!
Love hearing all of this! Pecans are just the best! Thanks for sharing!
This was fantastic and could not be easier!!! I had a little that didn’t quite fit in my jar, so I stirred in some cinnamon and a tiny bit of powdered Swerve (Keto) and it’s so, so good!!!! Thank you for sharing this!!
I’m so glad to hear you liked it Jenn! Your add ins sound DELICIOUS! I want to try that next time. Thanks for taking the time to share with me.
This looks so delicious, and so simple! I was just thinking how I need to start making those 2 ingredient banana/egg pancakes again on the weekends, and I can totally add pecan butter in there for extra yummy fat. I never even thought of making pecan butter. YUM!
I hope you love it when you make it Ashley! I love this pecan butter on those pancakes. It’s amazing! Can’t wait for you to try it : )
So, so good and easy! Why didn’t I think of this earlier?! We’ve already topped all the things with pecan butter. My husband is a peanut butter enthusiast (the yucky processed kind) and he actually said he preferred this on his apples! ?
I’m so glad you like it Ashley! I can’t believe I didn’t think of it sooner too. I’m putting it on just about everything too! haha! Thanks for taking the time to let me know you liked my recipe. Makes my day!
