Making your own nut butter is much easier than you might think. It turns out beautifully smooth and creamy, and only takes a few minutes. It tastes even better when you roast the nuts for ten minutes in the pan before blending them into butter because it releases some extra aromas.


  • 200 g almonds (or nut of your choice, e.g. cashews, peanuts, etc. - or a combination)
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Take your favourite nuts and place them in a large roasting tin.  Roast for ten minutes until they are golden brown and smell fragrant. Leave them to cool for five minutes.

  2. Carefully transfer the nuts to the mixing bowl and blend 1 Min. / Speed 6. Scrape down using spatula then blend again 30 Sec. / Speed 5. Repeat this scraping down and blending two more times. 

  3. You should now have a creamy butter. If not, repeat the step again. 

  4. Add the salt and blend again 5 Sec. / Speed 8.

  5. Transfer into jam jars and enjoy!

    Hie, the nuts don’t seem to get creamy. Instead, it looks powdery. What do I do?

      I would say, add more nuts or roast them before a little. Patience is required when making homemade nut butters 🙂

    Hi Sophie, is the salt to add to taste or to assist in preserving the nut butter? Making it for my 5-month old starting solids

      this is just to add taste, leave it out if you are making for baby 🙂

        Yum!! It is so delicious and perfect consistency. I made mine with almonds, macadamia and walnuts. Does it need to be kept in the fridge?
