This homemade peanut-free butter is sweetened with cranberries for a great spread on cut celery, whole grain breads, and fruit. It also pairs well with soft cheese (don't add more salt though). Feel free to try other dried fruits as well, such as blueberries, cherries, or apples.

This is a great recipe for a nut-butter! It has a nice nutty flavor and the cinnamon and cranberries are not overpowering. I was out of fresh ginger so I left it out but I'm sure it would be good. Make sure you add the water slowly as you will probably need less than the recipe calls for. Enjoy! Read More

As a new vegan I can't wait to try this recipe. I am however concerned about all the emerging news about the dangers of soy. Input would be appreciated. Read More

I used honey roasted soy nuts and left out the vanilla. I used organic dried cranberry and blueberry mix instead of just cranberries. Excellent! Great on celery! Read More

I used raisins instead of cranberries 1 tsp. dried ground ginger and omitted the salt. I only used 1 cup of water to get the consistency I wanted. This is good. I will be making this again! Read More
