Spooning nut butter out of a jar is one of life’s simplest pleasures.
Such rich, velvety goodness, with a subtle hint of cinnamon and that perfect salty sweetness that just makes it so irresistible. I love this dolloped on top of porridge with some bananas and berries, or spread on some toast with crunchy granola, coconut flakes and cacao nibs, or even eaten straight out of the jar, with a spoon. It all works.
Nut butter is one of those things that taste naughty and indulgent but is actually good for us! Of course, that means not buying the ones full of sugar, oils, and preservatives in the supermarket.
Luckily, making healthy nut butter at home is super easy and cheaper than the supermarket ones, you only need a food processor and some nuts (obviously) and maybe a pinch of cinnamon and pink or sea salt. It’s irresistible, trust me!
The cinnamon is just a subtle taste, so start small and add more at the end if you feel necessary, as you don’t want it to be overpowering.
Also, how long it takes to become a butter depends on how strong your food processor is, so it could take up to 20 minutes if it’s not very potent. I’ve done it with not-so-great food processors before, and I find it can help to pick it up and literally give it a shake on occasions, to helps the nut butter move along.
