Homemade Nut Butter

I am going nuts for this delicious nut butter! If you know how to turn on a food processor, you can make this. Seriously, it's that easy. 

So you can use any combination of nuts or seeds you like; Almonds, cashews, peanuts, sunflower seeds... Pick your favorite. You can make this with raw nuts or you can roast them first, this step is entirely up to you. I prefer mine roasted; it brings out the nutty flavor AND the butter preserves a little longer this way too. 

1 cup nuts 
1-2 tbsp honey; sweeten to your preference
1-2 tbsp coconut oil
Pinch of salt or to taste

Add all ingredients in food processor and let it rip! It takes about 12-15 minutes before you will get a creamy consistency.... Be patient. Every minute or so you will need to scrape down the sides to keep it moving. Taste and adjust flavor as needed. Cinnamon, vanilla, or maple syrup would make great flavor add ins too! Store in a plastic or glass container in the fridge. Use within 2 months. ENJOY!!!
