I love nuts. But seriously, I’ve been making homemade nut butters for awhile now and there is nothing I love more. One thing about store-bought peanut butters is that there are way too many ingredients. Unless you’re willing to pay a bit more, making it at home could save you a few bucks too! If you accidentally run low on peanut butter, almond butter or cashew butter this is also an easy fix! No need to run off to the shop in your slippers!
Currently, my favorite nut butter is cashew butter. I’ve gone through Almond butter and natural peanut butter and both are great but cashews have a sweeter taste. I tried making this in our mini food pulser/processor and it just didn’t turn out as well as when I used the big blender.
What You’ll Need:
A blender or food processor
3 ounces of nuts = about a cup
Choice of nut (in this case Cashews)
Place little amounts in if you’re using a food processor, if using a blender then just pour 3 ounces in!
Blend until a creamy texture forms
Empty contents into jar
Things I’ve put cashew butter on include:
These AMAZING blueberry vegan pancakes
Oatmeal (the organic kind)
A spoon (hah)
I know! It’s seriously that easy! I love that my blender makes the butter warm right away so I may or may not sneak a taste before putting it away. It’s best to store in the fridge if you plan on not using it in the next week or so. The recipe is completely up to you, if you want salted nut butter then use salted nuts, honey roasted-nut butter, and on and on. Anything is possible. I don’t like the salted nuts so I always stick to unsalted cashews!
I hope you enjoyed this post! I love homemade butter and I hope you enjoy it too!
