Best nut butter...ever.

That's right I said it. Last night I made homemade nut butter for the first time, and now I'm wondering why it took me so long. I'm sure you're all aware of my health nut tendencies by now and since it is so much healthier (and cheaper) to make your own nut butter I'm ashamed to say this was my first time. And guys, it turned out SO tasty! But that's because I added a little something special ;)

Here's what I did...

First I took 2 cups of mixed nuts (make sure to get some without any crazy ingredients, just nuts and sea salt) and roasted them in the oven for 6 minutes at 350 degrees. Make sure to take out your baking sheet and shake them around a bit every couple of minutes to avoid getting them burnt.


I then put the nuts in my little food processor and added 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil on top. I blended for a few minutes and when it started to get chunky I added an additional 1/2 tsp oil and continued to blend.


Once it started to get creamier, I added a some honey on top (I just squeezed a ring around the top of the nut butter). With the honey try to make sure you get Grade A honey, that is the honey that is the most natural and all that good stuff. Blend for another minute or so to mix in the honey and get it to your desired texture.

I like mine creamy, but still a little crunchy too.

Store it in an air tight container in the fridge. I put mine in an old salsa jar...because recycling is cool ya'll :) Enjoy!
