How to Make Nut Butter at Home

Peanut Butter Gets More Awesome: DIY Mixed Nut Butter

If you're one of those eat-peanut-butter-straight-out-of-the-jar people, and the recent nut butter recall has you freaked out, get your spoon ready for this recipe. While peanut butter is quite possibly one of the most perfect foods, even die-hard fans can get a little bored of the same old spread. Surprise your whole wheat toast and apple slices by spreading this mixed nut butter instead.

This homemade version will really rock your PB-loving world because it actually contains no peanuts at all. It's made with almonds, cashews, and sunflower seeds, creating a taste so fresh and unique that you'll never buy another jar from the store again. But it doesn't stop here — since there are so many different nuts and seeds to choose from, the possibilities of mixed nut butter creations are as wild as your imagination.

Mixed Nut Butter

Ingredients

2 cups of two to four kinds of nuts (I used 3/4 cup cashews, 3/4 cup almonds, and 1/2 cup sunflower seeds)

Directions

  1. Place the nuts in a food processor, and grind until smooth, about five minutes or long enough for the desired consistency.
  2. Store unused nut butter in an airtight container (keeps longer in the fridge).

Yes, how long will it last? I'd imagine, because its a fresh nut butter (hehe - yeah, I'm 12), the oils would require it to be in the fridge, as those types of oils go rancid more quickly than others (without preservatives, obviously).

I do this in my little tiny food processor, but when I want to make more, I use my blender. It takes a little longer though; plus, it makes it kind of chunky. I actually like mine with some chunks in it, so I make it that way sometimes.

LOL, that is easy! The grocery stores I go to fresh grind peanuts, cashews, or almonds for nut butter. I may try this though so that they can be mixed up.
