Well, the name of this recipe kind of says it all. This is one of my favorite things to make all year round, Pecan Butter that Tastes Like Pie. Super easy to make, loaded with healthy fats, low in sugar, and high in PIE flavor, this pecan butter is such a great alternative to the same old peanut or almond butter. From spreading on apples or bananas as a snack, to using as a base for your favorite energy balls and smoothie bowls, consider this pecan butter your new go-to! Are pecans good for you? I feel like when it comes to healthy benefits, pecans seem like an underdog when in actuality they’re winning the race. Unlike peanuts (which are actually a legume and not a nut), pecans are absolutely loaded with vitamins and minerals. From maintaining healthy skin and hair to keeping you satiated and increasing metabolism, the list of things pecans can do for you is almost endless. Besides having such amazing flavor, pecans are loaded with manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium. This alone is enough to get me excited about pecan butter, but then I went and made it taste like a pie!

The only ingredients in this pecan butter are pecans, Lakanto Maple Syrup, a pinch of salt and cinnamon. After blending for just about 5 minutes these ingredients are magically transformed into a pecan pie flavored butter. No matter what I add this butter to, or put it in, it puts a smile on my face. The texture is rich and thick, and the flavor is literally that of my grandma’s homemade pecan pie. How to use pecan butter Pecan butter can be used in all the same ways other nut butters are used, from adding to your baked goods to spreading on a slice of my low carb banana bread.
