I found the recipe for Pecan-Almond Butter in an issue of Eating Well magazine. It is a simple recipe and perfect to get me back into trying out some recipes. The recipe is on the frugal side but still a special treat. I used almonds purchased in bulk and pecans from our trees. The remaining ingredients are pantry staples.
It starts with roasting the nuts and then putting everything into a food processor. I have a 15+ year old Black and Decker food processor and had no problem making the butter. I did stop it every couple of minutes and scrape down the sides. After about 7 minutes, I had a smooth butter spread.
We ate it on sandwiches. W decided since we rarely ate peanut butter sandwiches anymore that he would rather have this instead. I loved the idea as I have never been a huge fan of peanut butter. I like the small amount and am certain we can eat it up within the one month time frame.
