Easy Homemade Mixed Nut Butter

Almost everyone loves nut butter, yet most people don’t realize how easy it is to make. This easy homemade nut butter recipe makes the best nut butter. It is creamy, nutty, and has a slightly sweet roasted flavor. Nut butter can also be made from any of your favorite nuts. I combine walnuts and almonds with healthy seeds to make nutrient-dense keto nut butter. You can enjoy this delicious nut butter as a topping on my chia seed pudding recipe.

What is Nut Butter?

Nut butter is a creamy spread made from one or more kinds of nuts. It is made using a food processor to finely grind the nuts into a smooth paste. Nut butter such as peanut butter and almond butter are staples among most households. Many make classic peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or pair nut butter with fruits and vegetables. But unfortunately, high-quality nut butter is starting to get expensive. Luckily, you can easily enjoy freshly made nut butter while saving money by making it at home!

What is the Healthiest Nut Butter

The healthiest nut butter is almond butter since it has more nutrients than other nuts. Almond butter is also made of the most healthy fats that are beneficial to heart health. Nuts and seeds also have excellent nutritional content. They have a nice balance of healthy fats, protein, fiber, and other vitamins and minerals. Macadamia nuts, chia seeds, and sacha inchi seeds are also excellent ingredients for making keto-friendly nut butter.

Tips to Make the Best Mixed Nut Butter

  • Be patient when you are blending the nuts. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes for the nuts to reach a creamy consistency.
  • For the best quality nut butter, choose organic nuts when you can and only buy unsalted nuts and seeds. If you buy salted nuts and seeds, the nut butter will be too salty.
  • Make sure to roast the nuts and seeds before blending them. This will enhance the flavor of your final nut butter.
  • If you use nuts with loose skin, like macadamia nuts, remove the skin before blending the nuts.
  • Don’t add water to the blender. Instead, add a spoon of honey or maple to help with the consistency.
  • Add a tiny amount of salt. The nut butter will already be flavorful and savory from being roasted.
  • Nut butter can be easily stored in a closed glass jar such as a mason jar.

How can you use nut butter?
Nut butter is highly versatile! Bread and nut butter is obviously a classic combination. You can spread it on toast, make a sandwich with your favorite jam, or put it on banana bread. Placing a scoop of nut butter into your oatmeal (see my oatmeal recipe) will also thicken up your oatmeal and make it a more filling breakfast. I also love adding nut butter to my smoothies and acai bowls. The creamy texture is a tasty contrast to the coldness of smoothies and acai bowls. If you feel like eating nut butter as a healthy snack, you can even use it as a dip for celery and carrot sticks.
