Honey Roasted Pecan Butter

Honey Roasted Pecan Butter

Ingredients -

2 cups raw pecan halves
2 tbsp raw honey
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
¼ tsp fine grain sea salt

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, melt the honey and toss with the pecans to evenly coat.

Spread the pecans out on the baking sheet in a single layer and roast in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove promptly to avoid burning.

Allow the pecans to cool for a few minutes, then transfer to your food processor or high speed blender*

Process on high speed for a few minutes until a paste begins to form. Stop, scrape the sides of the bowl, and continue to process for another 5 minutes or so, stopping again once to scrape the bowl.

Once a creamy butter forms, add the vanilla and salt and process just to combine. Done! Transfer all the honey roasted pecan butter to a glass jar with a lid, and enjoy! Store covered in the refrigerator.

Makes 8 oz. | Could easily be doubled!
