In this episode The Rawtarian goes into detail about how to make nut substitutions in raw food recipes.

To listen to the podcast click on the photo/play button above or save the MP3 to your own computer.

In this podcast I outline three main groups of nuts/seeds:

  • creamy nuts: cashews, macadamia nuts, pine nuts, etc.
  • flour-like nuts: almonds, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, etc.
  • oily nuts: walnuts, pecans, etc.

This is an information-packed podcast, and hopefully it's not too confusing!

Generally, these groups of nuts can be substituted for one another:

****creamy nuts: cashews, macadamia nuts, pine nuts, etc.
****flour-like nuts: almonds, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, etc.
****oily nuts: walnuts, pecans, etc.

Thank you for this info - found this very helpful. I'm wondering if you think buckwheat could be substituted sometimes for the flour-like nuts.

Hi Helen,

I don't use buckwheat groats much in recipes (to be ground down), but I do agree that of all the nuts they would sub almonds best.

Hope this helps!
