Nut butter is a pantry staple. It is the building blocks for so many recipes yet stands on its own as a dip or spread.
1Blitz 3 cups of your favourite nuts in a food processor on high.
2The nut mix will quickly turn in to a flour.
4Oils will begin to release from the nut flour and form a thick paste.
5Stop processing when you have the consistency you like.
You can make a blend of nuts and seeds or you can make seed butter with the same method.
In the blend you use, adding an oilier nut (e.g. brazil, macadamia etc) helps it form a nut butter quicker.
In a high speed processor, the nut paste will start to heat with the friction after around 45 seconds (depends on what you are using).
If you haven’t reached the desired consistency, turn of your machine and wait a few minutes before processing again. You want to ensure your nut butter is kept raw to get the most of the gorgeous nutrients.
