How to Make Homemade Nut Butter

Making your own nut butter from almonds, pecans, or walnuts probably sounds like a bit of a fantasy, but when you imagine the reality, do you think it seems daunting? Well, I have news for you… Making your own homemade nut butter is super. Frickin. Easy.

I’m serious! When I found out that I was sensitive to almonds, I doubled down on buying sunflower seed spread and ate it daily until I had eaten so much of it that it started to taste weird to me. I thought that meant I had to go without spreadable goodness, because making my own homemade nut butter would take too much time and just be too hard. WRONG!

When I finally decided to take a crack at it, I was pleasantly shocked at just how simple it is, and just how yummy the results could be! Plus, it’s way cheaper than ordering specialty nut butters online or buying them in stores (if you can even find them in stores). Give it a try, you’ll be glad you did!
