Making homemade nut or seed butter is an incredibly easy pantry staple to whip up yourself.

All you need is a decent food processor or a Vita Mix or other high powered blender and some of our sprouted organic almonds, walnuts, cashews, pecans, pistachios, pumpkin or sunflower seeds. Just 2-3 ingredients and you have a new way to keep your healthy fat intake up! Most of our 1 Lbers will make a generous 3 cups of butter and will likely become your new favourite snack or spread for our Sunflower Dill RAWgles. or Pumpkin Chia Easy U BAKE Bread.

Some nuts have more natural oils than others, which affects how easy they are to churn into butter. 

Pecans, cashews and walnuts and have more natural oils (fatty acids) so they turn into nut butter quite easily. Almonds, pistachios, pumpkin and sunflower have a bit less oil. Nothing a little avocado oil can’t solve.

The food processor method takes longer, but is our preferred method. you need to let it run for 5-7 minutes. 

Patience Grasshopper, it will be worth it!

The butter will keep in the fridge for up to a month!
