I finally figured out the secret to making nut butters. You have to add a nut oil, which will make it like real nut butter. The problem with coconut oil is that it hardens too eaily, so if you blend coconut oil with it the coconut oil will harden, creating a crumbly nut “dough”. Not what you want.
Use the same nut oil as nuts you are using. For example, if you are making almond butter, you would use almond oil, and if you’re making Brazil nut butter, you would use Brazil nut oil, macadamia oil for mac butter, etc. Just be sure to use raw nut oil. If your grocery store doesn’t have the raw kind, you’ll probably have to order it.
Makes enough for 2-4 servings, depending upon how hungry you are
Just about everything in hummus sets off a bad gallbladder, but with the magic of sprouting, you can turn those wonderful and evil beans into something that you can enjoy and won’t hurt you. You can also sub in walnuts and avocado for the seasame seeds if you can’t handle them in even small quantities—I find actual tahini is just too much sesame oil.
Goes good with greens and as a spread. Try it with celery in place of the peanut butter that you can’t eat anymore.
