Chunky Cinnamon Raisin Nut Butter Recipe

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on December 17, 2012

maple cinnamon raisin nut butter recipe-8572

I’ve been on a total nut butter gifting spree lately. By the time I’m finished rattling all these nuts in my food processor, I may need a very strong hearing aid. Eric is convinced I’m slowly going deaf, so I guess covering my ears for dear life while processing nuts isn’t helping much. These things should come with ear protection, don’t you think?

Mind you, this is coming from the guy whose subwoofer and surround sound used to blast me out of the house when he played his beloved Counterstrike game on his computer. He also likes to watch movies so loud, you feel like you’re sitting in an IMAX theatre and the floor is about to fall out from under you. Yes, I’m pretty sure he’s lost more hearing than I have.

Despite the noise, I love making nut butter – it just feels so gourmet and fancy, not to mention once you get the hang of it, it’s quite easy. Without a doubt, it has to be made in the right processor though. In the wrong processor, making nut butter can be a complete nightmare with engines blown out, powdery nuts, and even melted processor parts. I’ve experienced all of these in the past, which is why I don’t recommend making nut butter unless you have a high-powered, heavy-duty processor that can handle the task. I have a 12-cup Cuisinart processor and it works very well for making nut butter, although the lid can be a pain to clean at times.

There just so happens to be a lot of nut-butter crazed people in my life, all of whom are female. Coincidence? I made this Maple Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter for my sister Kristi, the peanut butter fanatic. I’m pretty excited for her to try this because I don’t think she’s ever been around to sample any of my homemade nut butters before! It’s currently traveling across the Canadian prairies and will soon be on her doorstep any minute now…that is, unless someone else gets to it first. Did I mention a customs dude once ate half a box of my Glo bars before proceeding with the shipment? I’m kinda paranoid now.

Chunky Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter

Email, print, or text recipe

Yield = approx 1 cup + 6 tbsp

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups unsalted roasted peanuts + 1/3 cup for later
  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted macadamia nuts*
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp fine grain sea salt, or to taste
  • 5 tbsp Sucanat sugar*
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup raisins

 

1. Place 2 cups of peanuts and macadamia nuts into food processor and process until the mixture resembles peanut butter, stopping to scrape down the side of the bowl if necessary. This can take up to 10 minutes.

2. Process in the cinnamon, salt, Sucanat, and vanilla, adding gradually. The sweetener will at first thicken the peanut butter quite a bit, but keep processing and the heat will eventually melt the sugar and smooth out the nut butter once again. If it still looks too thick, keep processing!

3. Pulse in the raisins and 1/3 cup of reserved peanuts, leaving it very chunky.

Notes: 1) Macadamia nuts, thanks to their high oil content, create a super silky and decadent nut butter, however this recipe should work without it. It just might come out a bit thicker. 2) I do not recommend subbing the dry granulated sugar for a liquid sweetener like maple syrup. Maple syrup has ruined batches of my nut butter in the past because it can thicken and create a strange texture in nut butter. If you don’t have Sucanat, brown sugar may work but you probably won’t need to use as much.

Still to come – the double cookie dough balls and cookie dough nut butter I made for my sister Kerrie.

I’d love if some of you could share below if you’ve had success – or not – with your particular food processor brand (or blender) when making nut butter. I think this would be really helpful for those wondering if their machine will fit the bill! Share your horror stories and successes….

I’ll start with one of my own stories. Minutes after opening a brand new Kitchenaid food processor a few years ago, I decided to process some pitted honey dates. Did I mention they were dry as a bone? Yeah, bad idea. After only seconds of processing in my sparkly new machine, I managed to melt part of the plastic on the processing blade and overheat the machine rendering it useless. I had to send it back to be repaired (which luckily they did), but my processing confidence never fully recovered…

Oh man! That’s not good for that Kitchenaid! I killed my mom’s old Cuisineart food processor trying to make almond butter a year or so ago. I think this recipe sounds great, almost like a gourmet PB&J in a spread. Wholesome though, not like those weird ones they sell at the grocery store. I use my Vitamix to make nubutters, but it is hard to control the chunkiness. I’ve been wanting a good food processor to do this stuff. One day.

Janina Locascio December 17, 2012 at 11:46 am

This looks amazing.. anything packed with nuts and dried fruit is to die for. The best things about these types of butters is that they go great on ANYTHING and are a filling addition to toast, muffins, breads, etc. I peeked at my X-mas gifts this year and saw a little Vitamix sitting in the closet :X hehe can’t wait to make this with the new blender!

Clare December 18, 2012 at 11:53 am

Can you get the Vitamix to make nut butter in the regular jug? I find it just sticks to the bottom and sides and never turns into butter.

Reply

Sarah December 20, 2012 at 2:07 pm

I make nut butter in my regular Vitamix jug all the time. It takes a lot of “tamping” and a lot of “spatula scraping,” but it does work. Blend on high speed for longer than you think you have to!

I should have clarified more in the post that it has a bit of a maple flavour to it, which I think was from the Sucanat. Sorry for the confusing name, I will clarify.

I know many people use their Vitamix for nut butter making, but I personally prefer my food processor because it’s soooooo much easier to scoop out. I find a fair amount of nut butter went to waste when I made it a while back in the VM because I couldnt scoop every corner out. To each their own though!

I find the little bit of nut butter that is trapped in the bottom of my Vitamix is perfect for a fresh peanut butter almond milk and banana smoothie. A reward for the pounding my ears just took creating the silken nut butter.

I have the same food processor as you and have made your raw nutella and some almond butter and it works great every time. I also find the lid a bit annoying to clean.

I definitely don’t recommend making nut butters in a Vita-Mix. We have one of those too and it makes me CRAZY that I can’t get all the nut butter out of the bottom. I bought the food processor for that very reason. I got the Cuisinart on your recommendation. The Vita-Mix is still a valuable smoothie and soup making machine!

Sharla December 17, 2012 at 5:12 pm

Cookie dough nut butter? Yes, please! I have an 8 cup cuisineart that seems to do the trick. My first experience was not a disaster, it just didn’t taste very good (cashew). I have since learned you sometimes have to add oil or water to get the correct consistency.

Oh you know how I feel about cinnamon! This sounds to die for! I can’t actually say I’ve ever made my own nut butter but you’re slowly persuading me that it’s a must-do activity.

I make nut butter all the time in my Vitamix. It works best if you pair an oily nut (macadamia, walnut, brazil…) with whatever other nut or seed you desire. Combinations are key in making it silky smooth in a Vita!

As for the wastage issue that several people talked about (when using a Vitamix), I just add about a cup of water into the nearly scraped out container and then blend this water with the scraps of the nut butter. This makes a cup or so of homemade nut milk! This way I get my nut butter plus a glass of fresh nut milk!

Shana December 17, 2012 at 8:27 pm

I have a refurbished KitchenAid that I am very happy with. It’s made quite a few batches of nut butter and is holding strong so far. For really tough batches that have taken upwards of 15 minutes has sometimes resulted in the machine turning off, but the machine starts again once it has cooled (sometimes another 15-30 minutes). Personally, I would much rather have the machine shut itself down and have to wait than to have the motor explode. I also saved about $100 by purchasing a refurbished machine (which still looked brand new on arrival) and it came with a six month warrantee.

I also have a Ninja processor that I use all the time. It does not have the power to make nut butter but it is super efficient at making things like salsa, hummus, and blending soups. It is VERY easy to clean opposed to the food processor which has multiple parts and small crevices that are hard to get to. I bought the food processor to replace the ninja but I actually use both of them quite regularly.

I love making my own nut butters! They’re so much better than what you can buy In the store. This one looks delicious! I’ll definitely be making some very soon. I have a 7 cup Kitchenaid food processor, and it works great. I thought I had broken it once when I made two consecutive batches of nut butter, but it had just turned itself off because it was overheated. My husband was afraid I would damage my hearing making nut butter, so he gave me his ear muff style hearing protection that’s meant to be used in a shooting range. It works, but I probably look a little strange.

Hi Angie and fellow OSG lovers!

I just got a Vitamix (thanks to my wonderful boyfriend!!) I tried to make almond butter in it but it was an epic fail, it sounded like the blades were just spinning not matter how much I scraped down the sides and I didn’t want to add excess oil. I know doing it in the Vitamix was not your favourite but any advice on how to do it in there? I don’t have a food processor! Do you have to use roasted nuts of can they be raw and do you ever soak then first?

THANK YOU!

Naomi

Reply

Katherine December 18, 2012 at 12:57 am

I use my Vitamix. I have used raw and roasted nuts. The roasted give a much nuttier flavour. Use at least 3 cups nuts and start on variable 1. I only go to variable 4 or 5 and use the tamper to force the nuts down. Creamy nut butter in less than 2 minutes :)

This recipe sounds amazing! I’ve been into making my own nut butters lately (especially almond butter!) and while I haven’t had any mishaps with the actual processor, the first time I made it, it was SOO loud I thought I was doing something wrong! I thought maybe the blade wasn’t attached properly or something. Haha!

Do you know if you can sub in almonds for the peanuts and use an almond/mac nut combo?? I might give that a whirl tonight. We’ve got a white elephant gift exchange at work tomorrow, and instead of getting a cheesy gift, I’m baking and making homemade treats! I’m going to take a jar of this with me! Thanks for the recipe :) I can’t wait to make the nutella one too. mmmm!

I made three, yes three, batches of your rawtella on Friday night to add to my gifts for my female friends (rawtella, homemade hot chocolate mix, shortbread bites, and homemade chocolate dipped marshmallows completes the package). I did it in a 9-cup Cuisineart and it seemed to fair okay until my last batch. I think I should have let the food processor rest a bit! Ha. It just wouldn’t smooth out and I ran out of coconut oil and didn’t see that I could use grapeseed. Otherwise, I would label it a success… especially after I couldn’t stop licking the spatula and kept having to wash it in between batches.

Veronica @ Veggie V's Vegan Adventure December 18, 2012 at 6:19 pm

I seem to be collecting appliances. My 13 cup kitchenaid was crap. Wouldn’t process anything. Neither does the 4 cup. Thankfully we get a huge discount because my husband works for the paren company, but still…what a waste! I bought an 11 cup cuisinart to replace the defunct kitchenaid, and I loved it so much, I bought the 3 cup. I’ve not tried nut butters in either, but they both work wonders with dates and figs. I’m afraid to use my VM for nut butter because I only have a wet canister. A dry one is on my list! I think a stick blender would work really well if you have a nice deep container to use w it. My magic bullet will do very small amts of soaked nuts – like for cashew cream. I run it until the motor smells hot. LOL a tribest bullet blender is also on my list. Wonder if Santa got my list…

Danielle December 18, 2012 at 9:56 pm

I busted my roommate’s food processor once by trying to process dried dates. Bad idea! I now use my Mom’s ancient food processor which is a beast of a machine. It is a Hamilton Beach Scovill 702-4 model. I don’t know what year exactly it is from (late 1980s I think) but it is brown/yellow and has a wood panelling pattern on the front so that just about says it all. It works so good for everything! My boyfriend recently broke the ‘on’ button but he managed to fix it (thank goodness!). I do not look forward to the day that it croaks *knock on wood*

I have a 7 cup kitchen aid food processor and I have made almond butter and your mocha hazelnut butter in it. It did overheat after the 2nd batch of the hazelnut spread but that was after it had been going straight for about 40 minutes! I let it cool over night and it was fine in the morning. It is a true workhorse (so far!).

My son is allergic to peanuts so I often make nut butters for our family. They really taste far better and I love that I can control the ingredients.

This Christmas my two sister-in-laws are getting homemade mocha hazelnut spread, homemade honey almond butter, and homemade pumpkin butter (Thanks Angela for the great gift ideas!).

I have an old Cuisinart (4 cup??) that I have used just once to make peanut butter (your recipe, Angela)! It went ok, but I thought it was smoking towards the end! Later on, I read in a blog (maybe this one?? can’t remember now…) post that the smoke was probably the oil mist from the nuts as they broke down. The PB was so good I will probably try it again, although I might try smashing the nuts first, just to see if that might lessen the stress on the machine. Oh, and I did stop it from time to time as it was getting quite warm. I believe I just used 2 cups of nuts when processing.

Madison December 24, 2012 at 11:12 pm

I just tried this recipe to give as Christmas gifts. I used a brand new Cuisinart 11-cup and it worked great! Very delicious. Just a quick note- the final product was a bit soupy. I only processed it for about 5 minutes (at which point it was extremely creamy)….does anyone know if letting it process for shorter or longer would help this??

Beth December 27, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Angela: I made 3 batches of this to give to my cousins for Christmas and it was a hit! It was so good I made one for myself, too. And thanks for the tip on the lovely Weck jars! Crate and Barrel also had these little red-handled spoons, so I tied one on to each of the jars full of delicious PB!

Hey Angela!
This may be a strange question, but comming from a country where nut butters are not so common, I must ask!
How do you eat your nut butters? Right from the jar as a dessert? On a biscuit? On a sandwich? With ice cream?
Thanks for a wonderful blog!

I just made this last night- and oh my, its so so delicious!!!! It took quite a bit of self control to not eat half of it while I scooped it into a jar for the fridge! I made some adjustments based on what I had in the pantry- used half toasted almonds and half toasted cashews and 4 TB of organic coconut palm sugar, and 1/3 almonds at the end for the crunch and it came out wonderfully smooth and silky! :)

I just made this recipe and it is DELICIOUS. I got my new Blendtec and it is serving me (and my co-workers gifts) well!

This is delicious! Yum It took me about 10-12 minutes to combine the almonds and macadamia nuts combined using a Magimix. I stopped for about 25 minutes after that as the food processor felt quite warm and then finished everything off. I added brown sugar and next time I will only add 1 tablespoon as it’s just a bit sweet for me (even though I only added 3 tablespoons of the sugar) but that might also be the addition of raisins. Either way this is yummy!

This looks amazing, but sadly I have an el cheapo processor. I’m wondering, my grocery store has the handy dandy machines to make fresh ground butters. Do you think it would work, if I used their nut butter, you know skip the grinding in my machine, then finish the recipe in my processor . do you think it would still kill my machine ? She’s not much, but she’s all I have ! : )

Dear Angela,

I have discovered your website a couple months ago and started giving some of your recipies a try. I’d have a question regarding nut creams: what kind of food processor do you use? I have one with 400W power but after a few seconds of blending when the oil starts getting out of the nuts, the machine just can’t handle it anymore. The mixture is so thick that I add some nut oil to it in the hope that it might help, but end result is never so smooth as I’d like it to be… :-(

Congratulations to your page, your recipies are indeed very inspiring!

Kind regads,
Beata from Hungary, Europe :-)
