Walnut Butter

Walnut Butter created by Annacia

If you get tired of store-bought peanut butter and almond butter, why not make your own walnut butter? It's so easy! Mollie Katzen adds a little cinnamon and honey! It's best to refrigerate since there are no preservatives.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spread nuts in one layer on a baking sheet. Toast until fragrant and lightly colored, about 10 minutes. Stir about halfway through the baking time.
  • Add nuts to a food processor, discarding any dried skin and dust. Add the salt and chop the nuts finely. With the motor running, drizzle in the oil. Whirl until the nuts are ground into butter, stopping to scrape down the sides two or three times.

    It's quick & easy. Roasting the walnuts gives it a more "peanut butter" taste vs. raw walnuts. To make it less a "peanut butter" I ground it less, added more salt, a touch of cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 more teaspoon of oil. I use olive oil.

    I added about 1 teaspoon of raw sugar. This was decadent! I loved it. Proud<br/>to add this recipe to my Best of 2013 Cookbook! This is my first time making walnut butter.<br/>I've made many kinds of nuts and seed butter including flour and meal but never with walnuts. <br/>Can't wait to experiment more with this butter. Tested with: Recipe #461568 and also delicious on slices of Granny Smith apples as well as spoonfuls of it right out of the storage container. Much better results and luck for me to dry roast the nuts in a cast iron skillet instead of in the oven. fyi Made for Veg Tag/July.
