Nut butters

These nut butters are so easy to make – all you need is a food processor. You can save money and you get a sense of satisfaction when you make your own.

I’ve made 3 types – clockwise – Cashew nut, Hazelnut and Almond.

The recipe is the same for all.

200g raw nuts

1/2 tsp sea or himalayan salt

Spread the nuts out on a baking tray and roast for 5 minutes or until they are lightly browned and aromatic.
Allow to cool for a few minutes, but they can still be warm when you put them in your food processor bowl with the salt.
Process for approx 5 minutes depending on the strength of your machine. You will probably have to scrape down the sides at least once.
The ground nuts will after a few minutes start to clump together, then go into a ball, then go really soft and smooth and when this happens its ready.
allow to cool completely then put into a clean glass jar with a lid. Store in a cool place or in the fridge if you aren’t using it often.


I love to spread it on toast in the morning for breakfast and top with a banana or put a tablespoon or two into a vegetable stew or use in sweet treats like my nut butter fudge – see recipe under tahini fudge.
