If you love peanut butter and almond butter, you have to try walnut butter! This homemade walnut butter recipe requires just a few ingredients and a food processor or high speed blender. Dried apples and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon make every bite taste like fall! The recipe is gluten free, paleo, vegan, and full of heart-healthy fats.
- Toast the walnuts prior to using
- Increase the amount of apples in the butter to bump up the apple flavor (this will make it chunkier, and less nut butter-y)
- Replace the cinnamon with pumpkin pie spice
You can, of course, replace the walnuts with any nut or seed of choice.
If you don't eat nut butter at quite the breakneck pace that I do, feel free to freeze half of this in an airtight container until you're ready to eat it, in order to keep it a little fresher. Simply defrost to room temperature when you're ready to finish it.
Yield: About 1.5 - 2 cups.
