Nut Butter

Does anyone else have a food photography abyss? I have a handful of photos/recipes that sadly lie dormant on my hard drive. Due to this thing called Having A Lot On My Plate, I just don't get everything posted that I want to. Last week I received a sweet email from a reader who asked if I had a recipe for nut butter. Well, guess what. I do have one, but I had to tell her that it could not be found on my blog. It was lying dormant. However, since she asked, I figured I would bring it to life! And now I'm motivated to revive the rest of my dormant posts. Thanks, Elizabeth!

A while ago, I remembered reading a post about Nut Butter that intrigued me. That recipe inspired me to create a multi-nut butter with a broad spectrum of flavors. I love this recipe! My family loves it, too.

This is not a concrete recipe. Meaning, feel free to swap out nuts/seeds as desired.

In a food processor, combine:

1 cup walnuts

1 cup pecans

1 cup sunflower seeds

Process until the nuts are finely chopped. Be careful not to let them become too pasty.  

Transfer the chopped nuts to a large mixing bowl. 


3 cups creamy peanut butter

2 cups Nutella

1/4 cup honey

(Does anyone else see Jesus in the below photo?) 

Mix well. Add more peanut butter to make the mixture creamier, if desired.

I prefer mine to be a bit on the chunky side, but if you like yours creamier decrease the amount of nuts/seeds added, as well.

Some might be turned off by so many nuts intermingling. I am not one of those people. I love the assortment of tastes and textures in this nut butter. So delicious!
