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
- 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.
- Open the food processor, pull out the blade, and scrape the peanut butter on it back in to the bowl of the food processor.
- Add the sesame seeds and dried cranberries and mix them in well with a rubber spatula.
- 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!
