Homemade Nut Butter

While it is super convenient to go and buy ready-made nut butter at the store, you can make some really fun and creative flavors at home when you want to switch it up! Also, when you make your own nut butter you know exactly what ingredients are going into it, no added fillers or sugars. Below is a list of flavor ideas to switch up your nut butter recipes!

Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

  • 2 tbs cocoa powder

  • 2-3 dates

  • use 1/2 almonds and 1/2 hazelnuts for nut base

Pumpkin Spice Pecan Butter

  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice seasoning

  • 2-3 dates

  • use 1/2 almonds and 1/2 pecans for nut base

Honey Cashew Butter

  • 2-3 tbs raw honey

  • use all cashews for nut base

Chocolate Coconut Butter

  • 1/2 cup coconut butter

  • nuts of your choice (almond or cashew)

  • 2 tbs cocoa powder

  • 2-3 dates

Cinnamon Crunch Peanut Butter

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp ginger

  • 2-3 dates

  • blend 3/4 of the peanuts and leave the remaining 1/4 peanuts chunky

Berry Nut Butter

  • 1 cup of dried fruit (strawberries, bananas, blueberries)

  • Use either almonds or cashews as base nut

  • 1 tbs honey

Basic Nut Butter


  • 4 cups nuts (roasted tends to blend better)

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, optional

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. If your nuts are raw you will want to roast them at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, the heat will also help soften them so they blend together better.

  2. In a food processor add the nuts, as well as the salt, ground cinnamon and vanilla extract.

  3. Process for a total of about 10-15 minutes, stopping to scrape the sides from time to time, until the butter becomes very smooth and creamy and almost liquid in consistency. It will return to a firmer, more natural state once it's had a chance to rest and cool down.

  4. Transfer to clean airtight glass jars and keep in the refrigerator for 1-2 months.
