  • 1.5 cup nuts hazelnuts or almonds or cashews
  • 1 pinch Himalayan salt To taste, depending to how salty you want it
  • optional add ons: vanilla powder, cinnamon powder


  • Place raw nuts on a baking tray in a thin layer
  • Roast on 150C or 300F about 15 minutes until fragrant and slightly browned
  • Leave to cool until just warm
  • Place warm nuts in a food processor and start blending
  • The nuts will first grind and as you keep blending they will begin releasing the oils
  • As they release the oils they will start to clump and stick to the sides
  • You'll need to stop 1-3 times to scrape down the sides and keep blending
  • After around 5 minutes you will get a beautiful smooth butter


  • You can use any nuts you like for this recipe
  • You can add to your butters various flavourings - I recommend using only dry ones as wet ones can cause clumping of butter and it won't be as smooth and runny -vanilla powder, cinnamon, cardamom, hemp seeds
  • You can use more than one kind of nuts in making butter and make a tasty combination
