Keto Friendly nut and seed butter:
Now if you know the way I roll, you know that I am all about making most things from scratch. And one of my favorites is homemade nut/seed butters. Because it is super easy to prep, it helps save money, and you can tailor the flavor combinations to your liking.
Why sugar free?
I have been trying to keep my sugar dragon at bay, because I have been having some health issues. And I wanted to give my body a break from too much sugar to see how it responds. A lot of the times if you check ingredients in some of the store bought nut butters, they sometimes contain sugar. That is why I typically will try and make my own at home because I can tailor it to what works for my body.
What you will need for the nut butter:
- Macadamia nuts
- Pumpkin seeds
- Chia Seeds
- Unsweetened coconut shreds
How to make the nut/seed butter:
Simply add all the ingredients to a food processor and process for about 5-6 minutes. But be sure to stop and scrape down the sides of the food processor throughout the time. Once you get your creamy consistency, transfer to a mason jar, and let the butter cool before you close the jar.
What to use your nut/seed butter with:
You can add your homemade butter to yogurt, cottage cheese, toast, baked goods, blissballs, or on top of fruit. The possibilities are endless and I can’t wait to see your creations.
