Homemade Flavored Nut Butters

 

A few ideas:

Pistachio butter

Curried peanut or almond butter with golden raisins & a hint of agave

Almond butter with smoked paprika, crushed garlic & cayenne

Cashew butter with candied ginger
Peanut butter with cinnamon and raisins
Hazelnut butter with chocolate
Pecan or walnut butter with cinnamon 
Peanut butter with cayenne and garlic

 

  1. Combine nuts in food processor or strong blender, such as a Vitamix or Blendtec. Blend until the nuts become creamy, stopping and scraping the bowl or jar as necessary. Add a tablespoon or two of oil, if necessary, to help it blend. This might take a little while, but be patient.
  2. If you don't have the time or kitchen equipment to make homemade nut butter, you can cheat and use a store-bought almond or peanut butter. Flavor as desired.

 

Tips:

Roast the nuts to boost their flavor, before you turn them into nut butter. 

Nut butters often need a little oil. Start with a tablespoon or two. Add more as needed.

Sweeten with a touch of agave, if desired.
