Making your own nut butter is so incredibly easy when you have access to a food processor or high-powered blender, like a Vitamix. This is a great way to save a few bucks on “high-end” nut butters and you can flavor it however you want! I love taking it to parties as a snack tray with apple slices and celery sticks. I use cinnamon and some honey in this recipe, but that can easily be omitted for plain nut butter and Whole30-ers.
Brazil Macadamia Nut Butter
Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: none Total time: 10 minutes
Yield: 1 1/2 cups
1 cup Brazil nuts
1/2 cup macadamia nuts
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp local honey
1. Place all ingredients in food processor/blender and turn it on. Allow it to run for about 5 minutes, and you’ll see the oils start to come out of the nuts and form the butter.
2. Stop and scrape the sides of the machine, then allow to run until your desired consistency is reached. This may need to happen several times. Then serve!
