HOMEMADE MACADAMIA NUT BUTTER
1 c. Unsalted Macadamia Nuts
1/8 tsp. Salt (optional)
1 tsp. Macadamia Nut Oil (or light oil of choice)
Toast nuts in a skillet on medium heat, stirring often, until fragrant and very lightly browned, about 8 - 10 minutes.
Combine toasted nuts, salt, and oil in a food processor. Pulse, scraping the sides as needed, until you reach a smooth consistency, about 5 minutes, depending on how creamy you want the final product. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several weeks.
Makes about 1 c., or 8 servings.
To make honey cinnamon mac nut butter, add 2 tsp. honey and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Or come up with your own combination of add-ins: vanilla extract, cocoa powder, instant coffee, shredded coconut, other nuts, or any combination of these.
