Nut and seed butters are so easy to make and are much more cost effective than store bought brands. I like to mix things up and combine different nuts and seeds rather than stick to one flavor. And no, peanuts are not nuts, they are legumes.
Almond Pecan Hemp Butter
- 1 c raw almonds
- 1 c raw pecans
- 1/2 c hemp seeds
- Combine nuts and seeds in a food processor.
- Pulse until nuts and seeds are broken up.
- Turn processor on medium to create butter.
I like to stop and scrape the sides every 3-4 minutes. Total time is around 12-15 minutes, depending on what types of nuts and seeds you use. Be patient! The nut and seed mixture will form into a ball a few times prior to releasing their oils. I like to put my butter in a glass jar. Allow butter to cool before tightening the lid.
You can add a sprinkle of sea salt, a drop of vanilla, a dash of cinnamon, a bit of cocoa powder. Be creative!!
