  • 2 cups pecans
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Evenly spread pecans on an ungreased baking sheet. Toast pecans in oven for 6-8 minutes, being careful not to burn nuts. Mine were perfectly toasted at 8 minutes. Remove from oven and allow nuts to cool for a few minutes.
  2. Add pecans to food processor and process for 5-10 minutes, scraping down the sides as necessary. At this point the pecan should start to clump together. Continue to process until you reach the desired consistency. 
  3. Add in maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt and process again until smooth. If the nut butter starts to thicken up too much, you can add 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil and process again until smooth.
  4. Transfer to mason jar or container and store at room temperature or in fridge. If you store at room temp, simply give the pecan butter a stir before you use it.
