I’m flipped over homemade nut butters! They save money, I can make lots of flavors, and I can choose my own healthy sweeteners. High in protein and other nutrients, flavored nut butters make a great snack! Start with my simple Homemade Nut Butter recipe and then come back to this page for chocolate and flavorings. Store-bought flavored nut butters are expensive and filled with added sugars. If you have a super-blender, you can enjoy homemade flavored nut butters in minutes. A food processor will also work, if you have time and patience. Today I made this amazing Chocolate Cashew Butter, which tastes as smooth as velvet, and yummier than candy. Check out the flavorings below such as Mayan Chocolate, Mocha, and Maple. I keep my nut butters in the refrigerator as a precaution. Makes 1 cup.
