If you have a food processor, homemade nut butters are super easy to make. Here we’ve used almonds for their anti-inflammatory properties, but you can use any nuts you fancy.
By making it yourself you avoid salt and sugars which some shop bought versions will contain (but not all – so if you do buy, then read the label as the more expensive versions can be 100% nut!). With this version, you can happily make this without the sea salt, but add it if you wish.
I like this served with an apple for a quick snack, but feel free just to have it on your toast in the morning!
- Place the nuts in the food processor and whizz until they breakdown to a nut butter consistency.
- Add 2 tbsp of coconut oil and process to create a smooth consistency. Add more coconut oil if required.
