I know there are tonnes of different kinds of jazzy nut butters about.. but let me tell you, this Cinnamon Pecan & Almond Butter is incredible. It’s all the best flavours together in one insanely creamy nut butter. The roasting of the nuts brings out their deep flavours, and combined with the cinnamon + sea salt, you have one ridiculously tasty nut butter.
If you’re a homemade nut butter beginner then do not fear! It’s super easy (literally so uncomplicated) and the satisfaction/smugness you feel after makes it so worthwhile.. It’s also much more cost effective than buying the store bought almond/cashew/pecan butters. Are you convinced yet?!
This nut butter would be perfect spread on toast, added to your morning oatmeal (try this one or this one), added to a delicious morning smoothie, or smothered over dates (my personal favourite). The options are endless! You’ll soon be a homemade nut butter addict.

First, you roast them.
Add to the food processor.
Scrape down the sides, then blend some more.
There we go! How easy? Now for the add ins..
Here we’ve got sea salt, cinnamon and vanilla.
Finished! Told you it was easy. Full recipe below.
- 1 1/2 cup almonds
- 1 1/2 cup pecans
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Start by preheating the oven to 180C and spread the nuts out on a lined baking tray. Place the nuts in the oven and roast for 10-13 minutes until slightly browned and fragrant – don’t let them burn!
- Place the hot roasted nuts into your food processor and blend on high for a few minutes. Scrape down the sides and process again. Keep doing this until a creamy nut butter starts to form (be patient, this can take up to 10 minutes!)
- When a smooth nut butter has formed, add in the sea salt, cinnamon and vanilla and blend so that they’re properly mixed in.
- Transfer to a jar and store in a cool place. Enjoy!
