Peanut Butter Gets More Awesome: DIY Mixed Nut Butter

Apr 27 2014 - 12:30pm

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 [1], 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).
