Man, I just experimented with making my own nut butter tonight. It was SO easy and much cheaper than buying the Artisana nut butter. I'm never wasting my money on those again! I already have a few of their jars to repackage my own :)
Here is my recipe. I will add it to Recipes too once the site is fully up and running.
2 cups cashews
Small hand full of walnuts
3 TBSP of olive oil
a pinch or two of sea salt
about 1/2 TBSP of agave nectar
- Put cashews and 2 tablespoons of olive oil into the food processor along with salt and then let it go for a while.
- Periodically stop the food processor and scrap the sides
- After the consistency thins about a bit add one more tablespoon of olive oil
- Process again until desired consistency is obtained
This will definitely help me save money!!!
