Five minute nut butter

Makes one pint jar, approximately 14 servings


  • 16 oz. unsalted nuts – cashews, almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts, pecans and walnuts all work well


Place nuts in food processor and cover with lid. Process on low for 1-2 minutes until mixture is finely crumbled. Process on high for 2-3 more minutes until desired consistency is met. The longer you process the nuts, the smoother the end product will be.

Note: The nuts will go through three phases:

  1. Finely crumbled
  2. Globby/ball
  3. Smooth

No oil, salt or sugar is needed. The globby/ball stage will last only a few seconds before smoothing out. Store nut butter in pint jar for up to two weeks. No stirring needed prior to use.
