Please tell me I’m not the only person with a serious addiction to nut butters.
My favourite has to be Peanut Butter. Which I devour straight from the jar. Regularly.
It’s gotten to the point where I’ve brought my very own tub to work – so that I can sneak spoonfuls in the middle of the day.
The best peanut butters are the plain ones. I’m talking 100% peanuts, with a dash of salt. My favourite pea-nutty spreads are Pics, Mayvers & Bega, with Mayvers taking the cake. I’ve often said that I should buy shares in Mayvers – the amount I promote it, you’d think I was a brand ambassador.
Since the perfect peanut butters are already in the supermarkets, I have focused my homemade nut butter escapades on other another nut; almonds.
I’ve been developing the perfect, healthy, homemade nut butter. It’s taken a couple of tries but I think I have the perfect combination of ingredients for a rich, sweet and creamy spread.
If you would like to try out the worlds best nut butter recipe, give the following a go. Add as much or as little of each ingredient, to tailor the spread to your palette.
I usually use 4 cups of almonds and then eyeball the others – begin with a little sprinkle of each, and go from there.
- Raw Almonds
- Hemp Seeds
- Dark Chocolate – I like Pana Organic
- Sea Salt
- Vanilla Essence
- Whip up all ingredients in a blender until smoothy and creamy (keep going even when it looks like a fine dust – it will become smooth and velvety eventually).
