Make Your Own Nut Butters

 

It’s very easy to make your own nut/seed butters with a food processor!! I tried a few different types and they all turned out great!

– I love the “almond cocoa butter” for a slightly “chocolately” treat.

– The walnut butter is a nice change as almonds can easily be over-used in a paleo way of eating (they are high in omega-6 fatty acids). Walnuts (along with macadamia nuts) are a good source of omega-3 fats.

– The “sunflower seed butter” is also a nice alternative and could be a good option for someone with a tree-nut allergy.

 

 

Almond Cocoa Butter

Almond Cocoa Butter
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Instructions
  1. Add almonds and cocoa to a food processor. Pulse a few times to start the process. Turn to "on" and let process for 10 minutes (turning processor off and scraping down sides of bowl a few times). Be patient! It will turn from a mealy mixture to a buttery mixture with time.

Add the maple syrup and allow to process a total of about 8 to 10 minutes (turning processor off and scraping down sides of bowl a few times).
