My fiance and I walk up and down the aisles of grocery stores, until we reach that final row of processed, peanut butters. Without question, one of us will say "we could make that!" However, due to one excuse or another we never have. Boom! Presidents' Day Weekend AKA no more excuses.
If you're like us, you have organic nuts laying around in your pantry that you reluctantly grab a handful of, whenever chips and dip aren't available. But using 1 cup of walnut pieces, 1 cup of cashews, 1 tablespoon of ANY oil (we used coconut), 1/2 teaspoon of agave, and our beloved Omega NC800 juicer, we made the best nut butter ever. Better that those pricey ones you find on the top-shelf of aisle 14.
This cheap, delicious alternative will have you wanting to grow your own nut farm, start a worldwide enterprise, or just sit on the couch and eat tons of this with toast. Enjoy!
**FUN FACT: This recipe can also be made in a food processor if you don't have an Omega juicer. (Although I highly recommend the juicer as it's great for cold-press juices and a variety of other recipes!) Simply add all the ingredients to your food processor and process until fully blended. You might have to scrape down the sides of your food processor a few times. Once it's smooth and starts to stick together, the nut butter is complete. If yours is a little more dry than you would like, add a tiny bit more oil until it reaches your ideal consistency.
