Maybe you already know that homemade nut butters come together faster than you can drag yourself to the grocery store, faster even than it takes for your bread to toast up. Maybe you even read our Not Recipe for nut butters. No? Put down that plastic jar! KatieQ is here to remind you of just how simple homemade nut butters are: Pick your nuts, roast them if you wish, add flavorings (maple syrup? cayenne pepper? cocoa powder?) as desired, and blitz in a blender. If you never go back to the jarred stuff—well, we can hardly blame you.
Have you made your own nut butters before? What are your favorite flavor combinations?
