Last Spring a lovely woman named Erika joined my GAPS Class, and as I got to know her I learned that she was part-owner of a gourmet nut butter company called Wild Friends.

At our last GAPS class she gave me a few varieties of her nut butter to sample. I thought the Sesame Cranberry Peanut Butter was sooo yummy! While they emphasize natural ingredients for all their flavors, the sweetener wasn’t GAPS-friendly.

Since then it’s been on mind to whip up my own version of it, using all GAPS-approved ingredients, so I could share one my favorite treats with you!


Cranberry Sesame Peanut Butter Recipe


  • 2 cups roasted peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries with no added sugar or preservatives


  1. Put peanuts, honey, and salt in a food processor with the S-blade and mix until it all turns in to very smooth peanut butter.
  2. Open the food processor, pull out the blade, and scrape the peanut butter on it back in to the bowl of the food processor.
  3. Add the sesame seeds and dried cranberries and mix them in well with a rubber spatula.
  4. Store in a glass jar in a cabinet for a few days, or in the fridge for longer-term storage.

This makes about 1 pint.

Try it on celery sticks, apple slices, or my favorite – banana slices!
