Nut butter is probably one of my favourite things in life.

I love to swirl it through porridge, smear a thin layer on an oatcake with layers of tart sliced apple or just eat it straight from the jar with a spoon… 😉

Nuts & seeds provide numerous health benefits including wonderful nourishing fats, fibre, plant based protein & many vitamins & minerals. These all then contribute to balanced energy release when combined with carbohydrates by regulating the speed with which sugars enter the blood stream.

I always include these beauties in my breakfast & snacks which when purchasing the organic pre-made varieties can become slightly draining on the budget! However making your own in SO simple (as the recipe below shows) & you also have complete control on what goes into your blend, avoiding additional oils, salt etc.

If you aren’t such a fan of either of these nuts simply swap them out for ones you prefer.

Key Facts

  • Makes 1 Jar
  • 5 Ingredients Or Less
  • Super Versatile
  • Delicious & Nutritious

Ingredients

  • 200g raw cashews
  • 200g blanched hazelnuts

Preparation

01

Optional step: Place the hazelnuts on a parchment lined baking tray in a 160ºC oven for 5-6 minutes until aromatic & slightly shiny but barely golden.

02

If not toasting your hazelnuts place the all the nuts in your food processor & blend on high until smooth! They will turn to a sand first, then begin to clump & become almost dough like but persevere & they will suddenly ‘go’ becoming beautifully, velvety smooth.

03

If you are toasting the hazelnuts blend the cashews to a sand by themselves first then add the hazelnuts & do as above.

04

Spoon into a glass jar with a tight fitting lid, use within 3 months.
