Walnut Butter

My parents came to visit this weekend, and as always when they visit, they kept me busy exploring the city and learning new things. My mother is a big supporter of homemade nut butters, they are much cheaper and healthier to make yourself, so I decided it was time to tackle it myself. Luckily, I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to make and how delicious the results were, with limited ingredients and effort. We made both a walnut butter and omega-3 nut butter, but you can use pretty much whatever you’d like and just adjust to taste, just make sure to use raw, unsalted nuts. To recreate the walnut butter, use a ratio of 2/3:1/3 walnuts to cashews (cashews help the walnut butter from tasting too bitter) and blend in a high powered blender or food processor and store in a jar. So easy right? Lately I’ve been enjoying it on whole wheat toast with a little cinnamon sprinkled on top, yum.
