This nut butter is not only very low in carbs by using macadamia nuts and pecans, it’s also one of the most delicious nut butters I’ve tried thanks to roasting the nuts and coconut (don’t skip this step!) and has become a staple in our household.

I personally prefer it without sweetener, but if you do like your keto nut butter on the sweet side, you could add a tablespoon or two of your favorite keto sweetener when you get to the blending stage.

This nut butter will have a thicker, runny consistency at room temperature, but will harden in the fridge. I suggest you store it in the fridge, so if you do want it runny, leave for 10 minutes at room temperature before using.

Use to make healthy fat bombs, thicken sauces (perhaps without the cinnamon), or simply spoon straight in your mouth for the ultimate keto snack packed with healthy fats. If your goal is ketosis, this is the snack that will help you achieve this fat-burning metabolic state. Enjoy!

I put this in reusable baby food squeeze pouches (7oz) for super easy dispensing on the road or when camping.

That's a great tip, thank you!

Good morning & Happy New Year!   Thanks for all your wonderful recipes & helps!   On this Nut Butter recipe, could you indicate whether the measurement for the pecans is 1/2 cup or 1/2 pound?  Thank you! It looks delicious!  Many Blessings!

Oh thank you so much for noticing, fixed! The grams/oz are always accurate but I did manage to leave out the "cups" 😊 Happy New Year to you too Mary!

This recipe looks beautiful! I prefer spices over sweetener. Especially cinnamon.
