Crazy Good Nut Butter

Crazy Nut Butter

This girl goes nut for a good nut butter. Shelby over at Tutus and Tea brought me some to try last week and it was just exquisite. The recipe is so simple and fabulous.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup mixed nuts (roasted almonds, pistachios and cashews were used)
  • Honey, eyeball to taste
  • Cinnamon, eyeball to taste
  • Pinch of coarse salt

Directions

  1. Combine 1 cup of raw almonds with 1 cup of mixed nuts (roasted almonds, pistachios and cashews were used, but your favorites can’t go wrong)
  2. Optional, but delightful to add honey, cinnamon, and a pinch of coarse salt to taste
  3. Blend in a high speed blender (Vitamix) until the nuts heat and mix, releasing their own oils and forming the most delicious nut butter ever.

There are so many good ways to use it. Two of my favorites are in yogurt or banana sandwiches. Also, it really adds to overnight oats!
