April 3, 2015

Stuck in a peanut butter rut? Ditch the store-bought jars and go for one of these 23 Healthy and Creative Homemade Nut and Seed Butters instead. I can’t promise you won’t be going at them with a spoon though…

23 Healthy and Creative Homemade Nut (and Seed!) Butter Recipes - Ditch the store-bought jars and go for one of these nut butters instead. I can't promise you won't be going at them with a spoon though...By now you should know that one of the foods I can’t live without is nut and seed butters. I have AT LEAST 4 different varieties on hand at all times. I love them for their healthy fats, satiating quality and most importantly, their deliciousness! Plus they’re super easy to make…so long as you have a food processor.

Cue Davs lecturing you over why you need a food processor.

I kid. I’ll spare you that talk for another post, but if you’re interested in making homemade nut/seed butters I highly recommend you purchase a food processor or high-powered blender. Best. Investment. Ever.

Admittedly, I can get in a bit of a nut butter rut. I’m a sucker for almond and peanut butter, but there are so many other amazing nuts and seeds out there that deserve a little loving. So for my own research and hopefully for yours as well, I’ve rounded up 23 HEALTHY and CREATIVE Homemade Nut and Seed Butters to keep you nut and seed happy till infinity! (or realistically 1 month in my house).

    Yesssss these all sound fantastic. Homemade nut and seed butters are everything. So much more delicious than store bought. Definitely making several of these! For the past few months my obsession with cashews has gotten completely out of hand, and I’ve gone through a couple batches of cashew cookie butter. So good!

    This list is AMAZING…I am pinning for later! I love making sunflower seed butters. It is a nice switch up from my peanut butters, but I think I need to make some cashew butter, because I love cashews!!! Thanks for putting this together!

    Gosh, I am drooling. I really need to try and fix my Ninja to make nutbutter again. Back in the days I made jars of this Almond Chocolate Spread – the cacao in it is so rich I love it.

    White chocolate Hazelnut??? OMG.

    Before we were friends/I was your fan girl I tried making your pistachio butter. I definitely did not let it blend long enough. It sat in a jar, pretty crumbly in my dad’s fridge, for probably a year before I finally threw it away haha.
