ARE YOU A FAN OF NUT BUTTER?
If your answer is yes, then this is the post for you!
Up to a couple of years ago, I just have to admit that, I had never tried nut butter before!
And, all that changed when I moved to Scotland and now, I eat it every single day… and, ohhh I miss it when I don’t have it at home!
You will probably notice from my recipes and from my about me page that my goal is to find cheap alternatives for the foods I love the most and I did just that with nut butter.
When I started to look at the price of peanuts, almonds or any nut and compare it with the nut butter, I found out, how much I could save if only I had a food processor.
So I did just that! I found myself a good and affordable food processor and now I make nut butter every couple of weeks!
So let’s get going to how to make easy homemade nut butter!
It really couldn’t be simpler!
First off, choose your favourite nut. My favourites are:
HOW TO MAKE EASY HOMEMADE NUT BUTTER
Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Spread the nuts on a baking tray and bake for 5 to 10 minutes.
I would suggest to really put an alarm for the first 5 minutes so the nuts don’t burn
Remove the baking tray from the oven and leave it to cool down.
Add the nuts to a food processor and blend.
Initially you will see a powder starting to form but if you just continue to blend, it will start to form a paste and, if you leave it a bit more, it will form your beloved NUT BUTTER!
The result will be something like this
It is quite simple to store nut butter. Add it to a jar and it should be good for at least 1 month.
