If you’ve never tried ABC nut butter, give it a shot! In my opinion, it’s the best type of mixed nut butter. It’s really simple: just a combination of almonds (A), brazil nuts (B) and cashew nuts! Whenever I make it, I like to add a bit of coconut oil too, and a sprinkle of sea salt – to ramp up the nuts’ flavors. ABC nut butter tastes very creamy – like cashew butter, but it’s more flavorsome and ‘edgy’ if that makes sense? Give it a shot and you’ll see what I mean. It really is very easy to make! All you need are:
Almonds (1/4 cup-ish – I used 70g here)
Cashews (1/4 cup-ish – I used 80g)
Brazil nuts (1/4 cup-ish – I used 50g)
1 tsp coconut oil
Pinch of Sea salt
The proportion of nuts is really up to you – depends on which of the three nuts you like best! I personally like the following ratio: 70g almonds, 50g brazil nuts, 80g cashews. Together, that = 200g which fills up a small jar (see video below). Macro wise, this whole jar (including the 5g of coconut oil) comes down to: 1268kcals, 37g protein, 113g fat and 29g carbs. You may think WOWZERS! 1268 calories! Aye. BUT. A tbsp of nut butter is 16g, usually. So, a tbsp of ABC nut butter = 101.44kcals, 3g protein, 9g fat, 2g carbs. Not too if you consider it in the context of what it gives you (zinc, selenium, magnesium, iron, unsaturated fats) and what you can couple it with? Like protein… POW! (See my note at the end of this post for more on this).
Here’s a video of the whole thing:
If you’ve never tried ABC nut butter, give it a shot! In my opinion, it’s the best mixed nut butter ? It combines almonds (A), brazil nuts (B) and cashew (C) nuts! Whenever I make it, I like to add a bit of coconut oil and sea salt too ? It’s extremely creamy in flavor, like cashew butter, but more flavorsome if that makes sense? The perfect combo of nuts ? It’s very easy to make and delicious ? You can combine it with some stevia and #proteinPOWmix to make your own protein bars out of it too! Or turn it into Protein nut butter? I’ll show you guys how to do both in my next video! Stay tuuuuuuned and have a great rest of your Sunday ??? #POW
Please note: if you can’t eat, or don’t like, nuts you can try this with seeds! Sunflower seed butter is beautiful as is pumpkin seed butter or a combination of the two, especially if you then blend them with hulled hemp seeds!
To make it, roast your nuts under the grill until they brown (but keep an eye on them because they brown really quickly and you don’t want to burn them! This has happened to me a lot and it’s kind frustrating). You just want the nuts to ‘sweat’, that’s why you’re roasting them because, when they sweat, they release a bunch of their oils which makes the creation of butter a lot easier. They’re also tastier roasted too! I think so at least.
All you do is then stick them all in a food processor (with the coconut oil and sea salt), mobilise a lot of patience, and grind until you get a smooth butter. It might take a while – don’t get disheartened if after a minute all you have are ground nuts! It takes a while to truly combine them.
