Homemade Walnut Butter

I read this article recently that talks about walnuts being the healthiest nut around and the highest in polyphenols. Good news! I like walnuts! And since my afternoon snack has been 1 slice of Ezekiel bread with 1 tablespoon of all natural nut butter with a piece of fruit, I thought I could easily incorporate those antioxidant rich little suckers.

Except walnut butter is hard to find. So I made my own.

Homemade Walnut Butter

1 1/2 cups walnuts
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp agave nectar
pince of kosher salt

Roast the walnuts under the broiler or dry in a saute pan.

Add all ingredients to a food processor. You’ll get walnut flour. Then walnut paste. Keep going.

Eventually you’ll get a nice butter. Mine actually got a better consistency after putting in the fridge for a few hours. I’m not sure why, but whatever.

To keep from eating the entire container of this magnificent deliciousness (nut butter is a trigger for me, I could eat half a jar in a sitting) I immediately made my snacks for the week and sealed them up in baggies, ready to be packed into the lunch bag.
