Abstract

It’s really easy (and usually cheaper) to DIY. Ideally, you’ll need a food processor or high-power blender (one that’s suitable for grinding solids), but you can make nut or seed butter with a pestle and mortar: you’ll just need a bit more patience. 

Nut or seed butter is great slathered on fresh apple slices or banana for a snack. It also (to my surprise) tastes great with carrot sticks! Store-bought nut butter often has extras added: salt, sugar, vegetable oil and sometimes palm oil, but it’s really easy to make your own. 
Almost every commercially available nut butter is made from roasted nuts – the flavour is infinitely better. Don’t even think about blending raw nuts or raw seeds unless you have a top-of-the-range high-power blender. (Cashews and macadamia are two exceptions.)Read More
