  • walnut butter recipe



    Looking for how to make walnut butter. Thought I saw this on Mark's website. Somebody post the recipe for me?

    I usually go with 1C roasted nuts and 1TBS coconut oil. Throw that in the food processor and chop till creamy. You can also add more oil as you process if you want it a little more creamy.

      You'll get a better flavor if you roast them first. I typically make almond butter this way...roast at 300 for about 25 min (while turning and shaking every 5 minutes...I'm talking about the nuts of course) and then put in the food processor. Process like a mutha until you get that smooth butter like consistency.

      I grok, therefore I am.

        Yeah, I made cashew nut butter by roasting them lightly, then processing it til creamy (adding some coconut oil). It takes a few minutes (5-10) to get it creamy and smooth, but it worked perfectly!


        When that is all gone, I'm going to make almond butter.


        I don't really eat nut butters myself. I do it for my kids.

          Thank you for recipes! I read that walnuts have a better ratio of Omega 6:3 ratio than almond butter, so I bought walnut butter yesterday. I've decided to make my own because it's $$$, ouch! $11.00 for a 2 cup jar!

          All I have is a blender. Do you think this will work to make the butter?

            You will kill that blender! Seriously, unless it's a Vita-Mixer you need a food processor to make nut butter, they take a lot of processing to get smooth and I can't imagine that a regular blender would be able to do it.

              Does anybody have a decent food processor they are satisfied with to make nut butter? I need to buy one at a fair $$!

                I have the 10cup Hamilton Beach one, which was reasonably priced around $30 in Walmart about 4 months back. We probably use it about 3-4 times a week and it has served us well so far.

                Newegg has it shipped for $30 with coupon code KITCHEN219 and no tax depending where you live.

                  I use this, the Preethi Eco Twin:

                  I bought it when I was really into cooking Indian food. Its a heavy-duty grinder, 550 watts. Great machine, it pulverizes anything in seconds. It replaces a food processor and blender, for me.


                  It has turned out to be useful for an endless number of things. It makes perfect nut butters without breaking a sweat.

                    I'm new to Primal living and was just wondering...what does one do with any kind of nut butter once made? I'm sure I'm missing something, but all I can think of putting butter on is bread. Thanks and hope I don't sound *too* foolish.

                      If you eat banana's, almond butter with every bit of a banana is devine. You could always dip your apple in it. Spread almond butter on top of coconut pancakes...which is phenominal i might add.


                      I blew out the motor on my food processor with my last round of almond butter

                        thanks! See I just have to get out of this box I'm in and discover this whole new, very tasty, way of eating! That sounds great and we might have to have that at the next party rather than some of the more "traditional" treats. Fruit with nut butter sounds wonderful.
