Yield1 cup of nut butter
2 cups raw nuts of your choice (soaked and dehydrated overnight)
5 teaspoons raw nut oil
1. Process your dry nuts and oil in a food processor until creamy like a nut butter. Stop and take breaks if the butter overheats, but try to grind it continuously.
Note: Use the same nut oil as the nuts you are using. For example, if you are making almond butter, you would use almond oil; if you’re making Brazil nut butter, you would use Brazil nut oil; macadamia oil for macadamia butter, etc. Just be sure to use raw nut oil. If your grocery store doesn’t have the raw kind, you’ll probably have to order it.
Rawclaire's ThoughtsBy rawclaire
I finally figured out the secret to making nut butters. You have to add a nut oil, which will make it like real nut butter.
The problem with coconut oil is that it hardens too easily. So if you blend coconut oil with it, the coconut oil will harden, creating a crumbly nut “dough”. Not what you want.
