Tree Nut Butter Recipe

This tree nut butter recipe is a recipe I created as I can’t eat peanuts! It involves xylitol, coconut oil and any tree nuts you want to include! You can opt to change the xylitol to sugar, though it’s much healthier with a sugar-free sweetener (granted, it’s not chemical!).

For the recipe, you’ll simply need a food processor. You will mostly let the processor do the work, but I add coconut oil in the middle of it. Add the xylitol as you add the nuts into the processor so it can be mixed in properly. Otherwise, you’ll end up with it being in bits inside of the butter.

Mixed nuts, roasted.
Those tree nuts look delicious! They’re roasted for around 6 minutes in the oven at around 150-175 C fan! You can roast them for another 2 minutes if they don’t start to let their aroma out!

Preheat the oven to around 175 C fan on or 150 C fan on. You’ll want to put the baking paper on the tray, then add the nuts. We roast them to let their flavour out, just like with our flour! When you can smell the aroma around 6 to 10 minutes after putting them into the oven, take them out. You’ll want to add it to the food processor.

Yum, that coconut oil looks really delicious! This will help to add some smoothness to the nut butter! You can optionally decide not to add it. I just feel it also gives it a nice coconut flare to it!

Add the xylitol to the food processor, then mix it for around a minute to two. Alternatively, you can swap out the xylitol with sugar if you prefer. Once done, add the coconut oil, then mix for another 10 minutes. Make sure to scrape the sides with a spatula to evenly process.

Here it is finished! It looks delicious, and it also does taste very delicious! How about you give it a try?
