This is not really a recipe, but I thought it was worth a post anyway.

I had my first attempt at making homemade nut butter this weekend.   I went with these flavours as recommended by Bella Eats.  The method couldn’t be simpler – simply put the ingredients in a food processor and blend until it comes together in a nut butter consistency.   However, I only have a miniature food processor, and I was quite concerned it was going to overheat on me!  If you have a larger food processor, I suggest you try it in that – apparently that is quicker.  If, like me, you are attempting this in a smaller processor, I recommend you only do small batches.

One thing I will do differently next time, due to my personal taste preferences, is roast the almonds first.  I think this will add a bit more depth and complexity to the flavour of the nut butter.

Overall, this was an easy, inexpensive way of replicating those expensive butters you can get in health food and organic stores!
