Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Add pecans and almonds to a cookie sheet, and bake for 12 minutes.
  • Allow to cool somewhat for about 10 minutes.
  • Add still warm nuts to a high speed blender or powerful food processor.
  • Process until nuts begin to form a paste (about 3 minutes in my Vitamix - this takes closer to 10 minutes in my food processor).
  • Add coconut oil, and continue to blend/process until the mixture becomes very runny and smooth. In my Vitamix, this takes about 6-7 minutes total. This takes over 20 minutes in my food processor- but it does finally come out!
  • Add sea salt and cinnamon, and pulse to combine.
  • Store at room temperature to prevent the coconut oil from solidifying and making the nut butter unspreadable.
