ABC Nut Butter (Almond, Brazil Nut, Cashew)

Nut butter is so easy to make in the Thermomix! It’s a staple in our house and our favourite mix is A-B-C: Almond, Brazil nut and Cashew. You can pretty much use any combination of nuts you have on hand, though.

I buy all of our nuts (and most other pantry dry goods too) from Pistachios Organic Pantry here in Perth. I have no affiliation with them, but I do like to share other small businesses, especially local ones. All of their products are organic and the pricing is good.

What’s Needed to Make ABC Nut Butter in the Thermomix

With just six ingredients (and two of them are optional) this is a very simple recipe for a great nut butter.

Almonds, Brazil nuts and cashews: Nuts in general are a good source of protein, good fats and fibre. They’re a tasty, healthy, convenient snack as is, but blitzing them up into a nut butter such as this one makes a versatile way to get them into your diet.

Oil: Nuts are high in fats so you don’t need a lot of oil in this. Adding a small amount makes the nut butter a nice spreadable consistency.

Vanilla: Added purely for flavour, vanilla is not a traditional inclusion in a nut butter. It does add a lovely element to this and although it’s optional, I highly recommend you include it. It’s fine to use powder or extract. You could even scrape some seeds out of a vanilla pod into it.

Salt: A natural flavour enhancer, salt will bring sweetness out of the nuts and vanilla.

Of course a classic great way to use a nut butter like this one is to slather some on a piece of toast! Here are some bread recipes: Best Ever Spelt Bread, Super Seeded Spelt Bread, Super Seeded Bread (wheat based) and my Oh So Soft Spelt Bread Rolls.

You may like to add a little sweetener to this – a teaspoon or two of honey is my favourite but any type of sweetener will work nicely.
