I decided to combine a mix of all of my favorite nut butters together into one for this recipe. It’s so easy to make a good homemade nut butter without unnecessary ingredients such as vegetable oil, excess salt, added sugar, preservatives and poor quality nuts. Rancid nuts may be used with loads of extras added to cover up the rancidity of the nuts. So to make it easy just make your own. It can also be much cheaper.
Some nut butters can also have other food additives that are now added including dairy by-products. This is the ingredient list of a new range of nut butters – VEGETABLE OIL, MALTODEXTRIN (FROM CORN), CASHEWS (25%), MILK SOLIDS, SUGAR, EMULSIFIERS (471, 322), SALT, OTHER TREE NUTS.
You don’t need any of those to enjoy a delicious nut butter!
