As you might know the nut butter your buy in the supermarkets have added sugars and salt and sometimes oils such as palm oil or sunflower oil so it is always better to prepare them at home if you have the material.

Since I have a good kitchen robot I prepare the nut butter at home because it’s actually very easy and you only need two or three ingredients depending on the nut butter you want to prepare. For example for tahini I just add some olive oil & salt and for peanut butter I don’t add anything since peanut usually comes very salty !

Below the two recipes for the Tahini and Nut butter and where I use them :

What is Inside ?
FOR PEANUT BUTTER
  • 300g raw peanuts
  • salt if needed (I almost never add)
FOR TAHINI
  • 2 cups sesame seeds
  • olive oil
How to Make it ?
  1. Toast the seeds or the nuts
  2. For the sesame seeds toast them in a pan until they start doing a noise and jumping
  3. For the peanuts toast them 5-10 minutes at 180 degrees in the oven until its oil come out and they look browner
  4. Put the nuts in your food processor and start mixing until it makes a paste / butter
  5. Sometimes you will have to pull down the nuts that sticks on the sides of your food processor with a spatula
  6. When the butter is made taste it and check if you need to add salt
  7. For the Tahini I recommend to add some olive oil during the process (3-4 spoons is usually enough)
  8. Store the butter in your jars and keep if for 3 weeks in the fridge

 

I use tahini for dressings, salads, hummus and peanut butter for toasts, smoothies, muffins, porridges and pancakes ! 🙂
