What's your favorite nut butter? Mine is almond butter! I love using it to spread over toast, as an add-on in smoothie bowls, or as a dip for fruits. However, after eating it so often I've been wanting to try something new. So instead of buying an expensive nut butter, I enhanced the almond butter I had at home! Once again, this recipe is highly customizable and can be adjusted to your own liking. I recommend finding a good brand of your favourite smooth, nut butter to begin with for the best results. Be sure to have a good mason jar on hand for storing purposes if you are planning to make a bigger batch!

Add more water if you are having trouble mixing the nut butter, especially if you are planning to use it as a spread for toast. Enjoy!
  • If you like, you can make a much larger batch of nut butter! Just be sure to store it in an air-tight container.
