By now you must know about my unconditional love for almond butter. It is so unbelievably addictive, hence why the 700g jar we buy at Naturalia only lasts us 3 weeks to 1 month top (ouch!). I personally find almond puree much better than nutella, although I’d like to try to make a homemade one, without all the rubbish they put in it, have any suggestion?
In an attempt to wean myself a little bit from almond butter, I tried to diversify my range by putting a mix of nuts together. Therefore I made a nut butter with macadamia, Brazil nuts, walnuts, pecans, almonds and hazelnuts. I just added a bit of salt flower and the result is a super strong and delicious taste of nuts. It was brilliant with my buckwheat pancake recipe (egg free).
It is such an easy recipe: if you too are crazy about almond puree or peanut butter, you need to try it.
- 200 g of a mix of nuts
- 1/2 tsp of salt flower
Blend until super smooth.
You will need a strong food processor, because if might take over 10min. It can be surprising at first that whole nuts like that can become a ready-to-spread paste. You will also need to bring the nuts back to the centre of the food processor, until it frees the oils in the nuts and produce the right texture.
So there is no need to add water, fats or any kind of conservatives. Just 100% natural.
Of course, you can create your own mix of nuts. Which ones are your favourite?
