Homemade Nut Butter
 
Ingredients
  • 4 cups of raw almonds
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil or other neutral-tasting oil
  • dash of sea salt
Instructions
  1. Put your nuts and about half of the oil into your blender/processer and blend 1-2 minutes. Your nuts will become a fine ground powder at this point.
  2. After another 5 minutes or more, the nuts powder will begin to clump up, and shortly after that, the oils in the nuts will begin to release so the mixture will begin to resemble a paste.
  3. Your blender will work easier now as the oils warm up and continue to release. Add more oil as needed to get a smooth consistency.
  4. Salt to taste.
Notes
f you want your nut butter to be slightly sweet you can drizzle in a little pure maple syrup right at the end. Now enjoy your nut butter in a delicious recipe such as our protein power bites, or homemade nut butter cups! Mmm.
