Pecan Coconut Butter

I won’t be here for a couple days. I’m leaving the Denver area and heading to good ole’ Dallas, Texas. On Christmas Day. Oh lord. Traveling kind of blows anyways….but on Christmas Day? When I should be in my bed, wrapped up like corn dog, drinking a heavy whip americano in bed that was just served to me by my true love?! That was totally unrealistic. I’ve never felt like a corn dog in bed.

Anywho, I’m not sure how much I’m going to get to cook out there. Ya see, my grandparents LOVE to feed me. We are a family that loves to eat and my Granny will always see that there is some kind of food available at all hours. And by food, I mean chocolate. I swear, every time I make it out to my grandparents house, I am bombarded with chocolate AND candied nuts. And when I say bombarded, I mean I actually sought out the treats…they’re everywhere. In a basket next to the love seat, in kitchen drawers, on the counter, on the kitchen table…..ev.ver.ree.where. Yes, sound it out how it’s spelled. You’re a quick one.

And the last time my grandparents saw my first tattoo, my Granny slapped me. No, not a cruel ‘I will never speak to you again’ slap, but a ‘you’re an idiot so I’m going to laugh the situation off’ slap. She’s kind, but she don’t take no sh*t. We’ll see what they think of my second tattoo…it’s much bigger…and of a girl lifting…on my side….I can already see their uncomfortable ‘what the sh*t’ smiles now. Oh, I love my grandparents. Cute people they are.

So this pecan coconut butter is pretty rad, I’m not going to lie. Last night it pretty much saved my life when I was staring at 2 plates of 9 dozen cookies. It almost got reallll ugly in that kitchen of mine. There were buckeyes, cookies and cream truffles, SNICKERS BAR FILLED COOKIES, sugar cookies, frosted cookies, date cookies….I mean, I wasn’t really looking that hard. But instead of sampling every single one, I snacked on chicken and this jar of fun. This stuff is delicious…and filling. Eating 1/2 a jar is just not always the best idea. But I still recommend it. Happiness will ensue.


Pecan Coconut Butter


  • 1 (7oz) bag of coconut flakes
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 23 tablespoons almond oil (or coconut oil or walnut oil, etc.–some kind of nut oil will do)
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I used coarse sea salt-gives it a little more crunch!)


  1. Grab your handy dandy food processor!! Don’t have one? You’re dumb. CHRISTMAS PRESENT IDEA!!
  2. Throw in your coconut flakes and turn your food processor on for 3-5 minutes or until coconut flakes and pulsed down and you have a creamy coconut butter. Sometimes the flakes are just a little different and you’ll get more of a chunky butter so either try pulsing it for a bit longer or don’t worry about it too much, you will be adding lots more stuff so it’s not a huge deal.
  3. Add in your pecans and turn your food processor back on until pecans are completely pulsed down.
  4. Now while your food processor is running, start slowly adding your oil until it is to your preferred consistency. I like mine a bit more chunky than totally oily but it’s up to you.
  5. Now while the food processor is STILL running, add your vanilla, salt and honey to it as well.
  6. Mix until well combined. Add a bit more oil if needed.
  7. Eat. I eat mine with a spoon but you can always eat it with fruit if need be.


*Store in refrigerator. Your pecan coconut butter will harden up (just like coconut oil does) so if you want it softer, put in microwave for a little to soften it up.

    i want a hubby to serve me an americano with hwc on christmas! what a sick fantasy, huh?

    i made pecan-walnut butter just like this and the jar disappeared in less than a week. maker beware!

  2. Hope you like it Kat!!

    Rej, do you think I have any leftovers?! Have you seen my ass lately? You didn't look yesterday at coffee? Weirdo.

    Thank YOU nick!! You freaking rock 🙂

    Heather- ask and you will receieve!! me on the other hand…I need to find a true love first lol. and btw, my pecan coconut butter disappeared in 3 days. 3 FREAKING DAYS. jesus.

    Glad you liked it journey!!! Happy holidays to you too!

  3. You should probably send me all those cookies. Just to get them out of the house and eliminate the temptation. Just trying to help.

  4. Damon, if you didn't live so far (meaning 30 minutes) I'd bring them right over….oh wait, my car is stuck in the snow. I'll mail them if you mail me a burger from Crave?

  5. Deal! Although, I may have to eat the fries and just mail the burger. I wouldn't want them getting soggy during delivery. Unacceptable!

  6. Oh, man! I made some almond butter with almond oil and I thought THAT was amazing- I can’t waittt to try this one! Except I’ll have to leave out the honey bc I’m doing Whole 30. Blah! Oh well. It’ll still be awesommme, I’m sure!

  7. Okay, I JUST made this and it blew my mind how delicious it is! I just started reading your site and I wish I had an unlimited grocery budget – I honestly want to try every single recipe

  8. I just made my second jar of this however I had to substitute pecans for walnuts AND it was still delicious. I totally prefer the pecans but walnuts did the trick… unfortunately, I am on a 30 day grocery challenge ($400 cash for 30 days) and I have only $40.00 for my last 1.5 weeks so I couldn’t afford pecans and used the walnuts I had on hand:(

    I tossed in a pinch or two of cinnamon too… YUM!

    This stuff should be illegal!

  9. I just wrestled with my husband’s old food processor to make this and, damnit, it was so worth it! I love this stuff. I made a double batch because I’m known to make rash decisions like that about a new recipe and I am so glad I did! This will last for… a number of days. Yes. SO good. I sliced up an apple and ate some right away. My husband likes it too. He told me to add cinnamon next time and I totally concur. The best part? His parents gave us a HUGE sack (like 5lbs) of pecans for Christmas. Heck Yes!

  10. Holy sh** balls Batman! I swear this tastes like sugar cookie dough…I need to put this away, like in the very back of the fridge. This wont make it through tomorrow!

  11. Hi- I just found your site. I was looking for something spectacular to do with the 2 coconuts I got at bountiful baskets. I know I found it now. Thank you for your amazing recipe.
    I don’t understand your disclaimer. You sound like you would be a wonderful person to know. Also you are so lucky to have such great grandparents. Sorry didn’t mean to sound like a scold, but your are truely lucky. 😀

  12. hey lady,
    you have seriously rocked my world! your blog and all of your recipes have been amazing! thank you thank you thank you!!

    so my question is, i have a fancy-pants vitamix that i’m just getting to know. is that interchangeable with a food processor or not so much? i do have a food processor but it is so loud my entire family bursts into tears when i turn it on.

    also, any clue if lulu has fixed their shit bc i really want a pair of money pants for xmas, but i’ll be damned if the person behind me gets a free peak while i’m doing my squats.
