DIRECTIONS

  • Roast the peanuts either on the stove top or in the oven until golden brown, adding the flax seeds the last 6-8 minutes of roasting. Be *very careful* not to burn the peanuts or flax seeds! Stir often! I would recommend stove top roasting with this step (a cast iron skillet being ideal). After roasting, set aside to cool slightly.
  • Place the peanuts and flax seeds in a food processor or blender and blend to desired consistency adding a little bit of oil to help blend the butter smoothly. Season with salt, to taste. Optional: Add sugar if desired, to desired sweetness.
  • Transfer the mixture to a container and cover (I use a recycled canning jar). We keep the nut/seed mixture refrigerated.
  • Stir the nut/seed butter each time before spreading to distribute the oils.
