The possibilities for this recipe are endless!It’s the final week of DIY HOLIDAY IN A JAR! I’m actually quite distraught over this. I’ve LOVED this series and of course getting to team up with my girl, Fit Foodie Finds.

The ulterior motive is of course having all of my Christmas gifts done by mid-December (minus those candles, which I totally kept for myself), but I’m hoping beyond my selfishness you guys have enjoyed this series too!

When Lee and I set out on this series, we both agreed there were some serious non-negotiables. We couldn’t possibly complete it without at least one ball recipe, soup recipe (to feed my obsession…pun intended) and of course, nut butter!

The possibilities for this recipe are endless!Besides our love and dedication toward energy balls, Lee and I share an intense obsession with nut butter. Open our cupboards and I can assure you that you will not be disappointed by the assortment.

There will be at least one version of every type of nut in butter form and then likely at least 4 more flavors. We don’t tend to discriminate against balls or nuts.

Yes, I just said that.

So before I get even more inappropriate, how about we just segue into the VIDEO I made where I show you exactly how to make this super easy Maple Pecan Butter!

Watch the video –> make the butter –> be loved by friends and family for life.

With an equation that simple you so very clearly have no choice. Enjoy!

    I made this pecan butter today- I love these flavors, but I noticed the consistency was a bit chewy or gummy actually. Is this common? The only change I made to the recipe above is I doubled it.

    This sounds incredible! I love the combination of maple and those spices! And I’m a nut butter hoarder as well – no discrimination. All the nuts, all the flavors 😀

    Love those holiday flavors! I love homemade pecan butter! Not one you can easily buy, so homemade has always been a must!

      Yeah it’s definitely a make-at-home butter! So impossible to find in stores but thankfully it’s super easy to make at home 🙂
