Recently our family has taken a liking to Blue Mountain Organics Better Than Roasted nut butters. We really like the Just 4 Nuts Butter. Love the name since I’m such a nut. Well they have been out of it at my local Whole Foods stores and we were having with drawl. So I decided I would make my own version so we could get a fix. It’s gluten free, dairy free, soy free and sugar free but not free of great taste.
I used the food processor and in about 5 minutes total I was eating 4 Nuts Butter. Now as you can see my process is very different than theirs (you need to read their website to see the difference). But we really like what I created and as you can see I couldn’t even wait to take the photo before I started munching on my gluten free toast.
Here’s my recipe.
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup raw pecans
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup almonds (couldn’t tell if they were raw or not but didn’t care)
2 TB grapeseed oil
Put nuts into processor and start. After a few minutes when they are all chopped up drissel in the oil while it’s still moving. This helped is stick together and become creamy. It may have done that on it’s own if I would have waited, but did I mention I’m not patient. I have a hard time waiting on things. One more reason I like to cook instead of bake. This did dry out a little as I kept it in the refrigerator. I may add in a little more oil next time.
