Agave Pecan Butter Surprise

Sometimes while making a recipe in your head it doesn’t always come out as planned. But sometimes you are left with a welcome surprise. That is how I came up with the Agave Pecan Butter. It is a great, super smooth spread and still raw! You don’t often see super smooth raw spreads and this one is a good one. I wish all mistakes were this successful haha! Of course if you want less butter half or quarter the ingredients. This is a great dip for apples or substiute for any nut butter.


Agave Pecan Butter Surprise

3 cups Pecans
1/4 cups Agave
1/2 cups Water
dash of celtic sea salt

Blend the pecans till a fine flour and then until it forms a butter. Add the agave, water and salt and continue processing until smooth and deeelish!

    Yum! I just bought some raw pecans today and was planning on making pecan butter. I have never made it before and decided to look up some recipes to guide me. I’m sooo glad I came across this one.

    I used raw honey instead of agave and it taste wonderful! Adding a bit of water really was a great idea to make it smooth (instead of oil). Thanks!
    I’m enjoying some right now on a banana. 🙂
