First (Successful) Homemade Nut Butter

A big bag of macadamia nuts. A cup and a half of almonds. A box of unshelled pecans. What to do? Make nut butter of course! After all, everything is better with nut butter. I was very excited to finally properly make my own as I have seen so many homemade butters that look delicious. This was cheap, used up nuts I was never going to use otherwise, and very easy. (Except for cleaning the blender-I need a processer in the worst way!) The result? Just the right balance of creamy and crunchy and excellent flavor for being raw.

                     Macadamia, Pecan, and Almond Honey Nut Butter

Ingredients:

About 15 pecans

1.5 c. almonds

About 15 macadamia nuts

1 T. Honey (I used raw)

Directions:

Combine nuts and honey in food processor and process until mix turns creamy and the nuts begin releasing some of their fat. If needed, add 1 T. water or almond milk. (This process took me about 5 minutes)

After making this, I scraped it into a leftover Maranatha jar and put a cute handwritten label on it.  Delicious on toast, apples, oatmeal, and particularily on Kath’s Banana “Hot Dog”. http://www.katheats.com/?page_id=3078 

Now there are officially have 6 nut buttersin the fridge (no joke)… this is beginning to become a problem;) Hope you have a lovely rest of your day and stop by again soon- I have some great recipe posts coming up!
