I love to make my own Nut Butters, which we eat often for Breakfast.
This week, I made TWO flavors! 🙂
Pecan Coconut Butter on the Left, and good ole Peanut Butter on the Right.
All natural with no added oils or emulsifiers. And the cost? Literally, Peanuts!
~ Put any random quantity of nuts of your choice in small processor. For this recipe I used Chopped Pecans and Organic Unsweetened Coconut, in a roughly 50/50 ratio. To this, I added about 1/4 tsp of organic raw sugar. [May substitute honey, or omit altogether if you don’t use sugars. I did not add sugar to the Peanuts]. Add a pinch of sea salt. If you are using salted nuts, omit the salt.
~ Pulse till mixed. Grind for approx one minute. Mixture will get crumbly, then form a ball, then become smooth. Taste. Adjust salt, nuts or sweetness, Grind till sooth enough to spread. Mixture gets a little warm, so leave in container uncovered for at least one hour. Will keep in covered container for weeks.
Boom! That’s it! So easy!
Now you have Delicious Home Made Nut Butter!
Cheers, and Happy Eating!
