When people first try nuts on a SIBO diet, I recommend they do so judiciously. The nice thing about pecan butter is it’s naturally sweet, so a spoonful or two by itself or with a banana can be very satisfying. Pecan butter is also great in nut butter pancakes and pecan butter blondies.

Ingredients:

1 pound raw pecans
1 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add pecans to a baking sheet, making sure they are spread out evenly.
  3. Roast pecans for approximately 11 minutes or until brown and omitting a yummy, roasted smell.
  4. Remove pecans from oven and cool for approximately 10 minutes or until they are cool enough to handle.
  5. Add pecans to food processor and process until it turns to butter.
  6. Stop intermittently to scrape down the sides. Depending on your processor, it will take several minutes.
  7. Add salt, blend again and then taste and add more as desired.
  8. Add other spices as desired. Blend until incorporated.

Possible flavor combinations: pecan/honey/cinnamon, pecan/orange essential oil/cardamom, etc. – use your imagination! If you do ok with a little dark chocolate, melt it and stir it into the pecan butter. Amazing!
