Peanut, Almond and Chia Butter

No nut butter on hand, no worries! Well as long as you have nuts on hand then this can help you sort out the problem! Or, you might just want to try out a new combination of nut spread that doesn’t exist or is too expensive. It is also a healthy choice for you too because you know exactly what stays in and what stays out of your nut butter! I was actually shocked when I was making this that you don’t need any oil or liquids to bring it all together! All you need is a bit of patience. For anyone out there who may not be convinced that they can make their own nut butter at home, here is what I did (and I’m not some miracle worker/chef so if I can do it, so can you!)

Peanut, Almond and Chia ButterΒ 

What you’re going to need

1 cup peanuts

1 cup almonds

1 tablespoon chia seeds

Method

1. Add all your ingredients to a food processor.

2. Process for at least 15 minutes (don’t give up, I assure you butter will form!) but make sure you occasionally scrape down the sides as you go. You will also notice that the mixture will be getting quite warm which aids in the butter production

3. Serve with toast or use as a base for ingredients such as protein bars (future post in the works!)
