This recipe is taken from the book "Native American Gardening" by Michael J. Caduto & Joseph Bruchac. For the nut butter, I suggest using pecan or sunflower seed butter and in place of the honey, try maple syrup. 

Hominy Grits
-5 cups water
-1 cup hominy grits
-1 Tablespoon nut butter
-1 tablespoon honey

Boil the water in a saucepan. Pour in the grits gradually while you stir. Stir in the nut butter and honey. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. 
The grits can be sweetened, or you can add herb spices. Grits have many uses: they make a good breakfast cereal, soup, and dinner.
