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.

Or try swirling some through homemade Chunky Chocolate.

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.

My first ever attempt at a nut butter and it worked perfectly! Thanks so much! Yummy on toast, on celery with sultanas or with apple slices. And of course in your sesame seed bars. I didn’t have quite enough brazil nuts so just added more of the others and still perfect. 🙂

I’ve tried a few different nut butter recipes but this is far the best. I didn’t have Brazil nuts so used extra cashew & almonds. Beautiful.

This nut butter is by far my favourite! I found i had to process it quite a bit longer to get it to release the oils and get really nice. I also put in less salt but would leave it out next time.

I think I will leave out the salt next time too actually.

Your but bitter actually looks a bit oily and smooth as it should. Mine looks quite crumbly still and I even added an additional 10g of oil on top of the 40g. Any ideas?????

Yes I did all those things! I processed long and will add a touch of oil to jar when I put it in. The mix is more moist now but still drier than I’d like. Thx for the speedy reply!

I was a little bit stressed about burning my nuts and maybe I took them off a little early which meant the oils didn’t release so well??? Just putting this note here for other who might be having the same problem. I ended using an extra 20g maca oil total and an extra 1min processing time stopping every 30 secs to scrape down.
