Carrot Cake Almond Butter (keto, low-carb, paleo + dairy-free)

Carrot Cake Almond Butter #keto #lowcarb #highfatSmooth almond butter that tastes like carrot cake…without the additional carbs. A mixture of Marcona almonds, pecans, lemon, cinnamon, and butter for the perfect keto nut butter.

If you guys were around when I first discovered NOW’s coconut infusions non-dairy butter flavored coconut oil, you’ll remember just how excited I was about it. There was a solid month where I put the stuff on anything. Like, anything.

For someone who can’t tolerate dairy on the ketogenic diet, having access to a dairy-flavored coconut oil that acts and tastes like actual butter is literally the best thing. There are so many things you can do with it!

For example, adding it to nut butter to make a plain ‘ol nut butter taste like cake. If you can have grass-fed butter, do that. If you can’t, use this.

I wanted to make a nut butter with a couple of different flavors. Then, Kevin reminded me how much I used to love cookie butter, and this carrot cake almond butter was imagined. So if you love carrot cake, you have a soft-spot for sugar-free things, you’re keto and you’d like a well macro-balanced treat to snack on, look no further.

This delicious keto recipe is made with a bunch of my favorite NOW products. I hope you enjoy!

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Place the almonds and pecans on a small baking sheet. Transfer to the preheated oven and roast for 10 to 15 minutes, rotating every 5 minutes, until nuts are lightly golden.
  2. Meanwhile, place remaining ingredients in the jug of your high-powered blender or bowl of your food processor. Add the roasted nuts, cover, and blend until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a 10 fl. oz (300 ml) jar or larger. Store in the pantry for up to 1 month or in the fridge for up to 3 months.
Marcona almonds: can be replaced with blanched almonds.

Butter-infused coconut oil: you could use any oil here, but the butter-infused is nice! If you can tolerate ghee or grass-fed butter, it would be delicious!

Eggwhite protein powder: you can use any of your favorite protein powders. Just be cognizant of the flavor they may add to the final dish.

  1. 16 servings? Does that mean this recipe makes a cups’ worth, i.e., each serving is a tablespoon?
    THanks! Can’t wait to make this!

  2. Can’t wait to try this. Do you think I could sub Vital Proteins Collagen for the egg whites protein powder? I am going to use my homemade, clarified butter as a sub for the Coconut Infusions™ Non-Dairy Butter Flavor. Easy to do and removes nearly all of the dairy. Perhaps I’ll try one with clarified butter and one with gee.

    • I bet you could! I’d love to know how it goes if you try it.

  3. Looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it! Is a serving size 2 Tablespoons?

    • Technically 1, but feel free to have as much as you’d like ;)

  4. The oil that I said “Where have you been all my life?” to is Epic’s Duck Fat. It enhances the flavor of chicken SO MUCH!

    I hope to try this nut butter soon.

    • Oh yes, that’s a good one! I’d love to know what you think if you try this recipe.

  5. Sounds delicious! What is the function of the egg white powder? Knowing will help me decide if I already have something that will work as a substitute (I have collagen and gelatin).

    • The egg white protein adds a nice protein punch. I’m sure collagen would work fabulously!

  6. Great recipe, thanks a bunch. When I clicked on the nutritional information it took me to your breaded shrimp recipe.

  7. Is there any reason I couldn’t replace the egg white powder with collagen? I am stupid excited to try this! Thanks so much!

    • I think that would work perfectly! Let me know how it goes if you try it ;)
