Description

You’ll want to spread this Banana Bread Pecan Almond Butter on everything! This creamy nut butter, made from pecans and almonds, tastes like a spreadable version of banana bread, loaded with cinnamon, nutmeg, and dried banana bits. There’s no sugar added in this vegan, Paleo, + Whole30-approved treat.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1½ cups raw almonds
  • 1½ cups raw pecans
  • ½ cup freeze-dried bananas
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla bean powder or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened dried bananas, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the almonds and pecans on a lined baking sheet and bake in the heated for about 8 minutes, or until fragrant and lightly toasted. Let cool for a few minutes on the counter top.
  2. When the nuts are cool, add them to your food processor or high-powered blender (I used my Vitamix). Process for about 3-6 minutes, scraping down as necessary. Your time might be shorter if you’re using a high-powered blender – it will take a little bit longer in the food processor and require more scraping down.
  3. When the almonds and pecans have broken down into smooth, creamy butter, add the freeze-dried bananas, cinnamon, vanilla bean powder, and salt. Process to incorporate, and taste. Adjust add-ins as desired. Finally, add the dried banana and blend to break them up a bit.
  4. Transfer to a glass jar or two (like a mason or Weck jar) and store in the refrigerator for 2-3 months.
