I absolutely love nut butter of all kinds! Here is my basic recipe that I use as the basis for all of my butters!

Looking for a fool-proof method that works for any kind of nuts than look not further!

This recipe is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan, Paleo & Whole30 Approved

400g of your chosen nuts
Pinch of coarse salt (optional)

For this recipe I have chosen my new favourite, cashew nut butter – it is so smooth and creamy you will have to lock the press to stop yourself eating the whole jar in one go!

Method:

1. Preheat your oven to 200°c/392°F.

2. Place the nuts on a baking tray and toast in the oven for 6 minutes.

3. If using nuts with skin, place in a tea towel and rub until the skin flakes off.

4. Place the nuts in your food processor and blend for roughly 8-10 minutes until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides occasionally to insure an even butter.

5. Once you have reached you desired consistency, sprinkle in a small bit of coarse salt or desired flavours, blitz until combined.

6. Store in a sterilized jar and enjoy with sweet or savoury a like!

My favourite way to eat nut butter is on a slice of banana, it’s a ridiculously good combination!
