Raw Cashew Pecan Maple Butter

Raw Cashew Pecan Maple Butter


  • 1 cup raw pecan halves or pieces
  • 1½ cups raw cashews
  • ¼ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp sea or kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp neutral vegetable oil


– High Speed Blender (Vitamix)-

Add the nuts, seed, maple syrup and salt to the container, drizzle the oil in and secure the lid. Select Variable 1, turn machine on and quickly turn up to Variable 10, then to high, using the tamper to press the nuts into the blades. Process for NO longer than a minute! (This is VERY important as you could overheat your machine!) Scrape out and pack into decorative jam/canning jars.

– Food Processor –

Put the processing blade in and dd everything to the work bowl. Process until as smooth as you would like.

Will fill about 4 4-ounce canning jars. Store tightly sealed in the refrigerator.




  1. […] I used dried cherries with a touch of sugar added, for me these are the easiest to source. You can use what you like – just try to avoid cherries treated with sulfites. Almond butter can be hard to source raw if you live in more remote areas. It is becoming a lot easier to find though, even Trader Joe’s sells it. I prefer crunchy, love the texture. You can of course make it yourself if you have a food processor or a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix (we make our own nut butters often). […]

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
