A fun spin on traditional nut butter
If you clicked on this recipe, you probably already know that your Vitamix easily makes nut butters.
What’s great about this particular recipe?
It’s SO easy!
What you need:
- peanuts (or cashews if you’re allergic)
- maple syrup
- a Vitamix
The ingredients are understable, if you’re making nut butter you need nuts. But the Vitamix? Is that really necessary?
In this case, yes.
Many of our recipes you can make with any ole blender. But not nut butters.
There’s a few reasons why a Vitamix can handle the blend better than the competition:
- Powerful motor with thermal protection system
- A vented lid (to let steam out)
- A handy tamper.
See that gray stick I’m using? That’s the tamper. And it’s a magical tool to help you control the texture of your blend.
It also helps you push the nuts down into the blade to get that desired smoothness.
Important tip: Uo use enough nuts to cover the blades. In this case, we needed 3 cups because we are using the 48 oz container that comes with the Vitamix Explorian E310. If you’re using the 64 oz container, you’ll need at least 4 cups.
But enough with the machine itself, what about the Maple Pecan Nut Butter??
We’ll put it simply: it’s delicious.
Put some in a jar and gift it over the holidays. Blend some up and serve it with apples for a kid-friendly snack. Spread it all over your morning toast. Eat it directly off the spoon.
Whatever you do with it, you’re going to be impressed.
Embrace those fall flavors and make yourself some Maple Pecan Nut Butter, you’ll be so happy you did.
Useful tips for Maple Pecan Nut Butter
If someone in your house has a peanut allergy, sub cashews for peanuts.
Buy the freshest pecans you can. The nut butter will taste better if they haven’t been sitting in your pantry for a year.
If you don’t have time to toast the nuts, skip it. They have enough natural oils to still make a smooth nut butter, just less of a toasted flavor.
Bonus: makes an excellent peanut butter and jelly!
