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).

    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.
