As you know, I have been making my own jam/preserves and learning that making homemade nut butter is also very easy hence I set it out to give it a try. My girls loved Nutella so I added cocoa powder into my experiment. It didn't taste very good at first so I tried adding some brown sugar and gave it a taste. It also felt a bit thick so I added a little peanut oil to make it smoother and the above was the result of it.
We really liked it and when I am out of the almonds, I might try it with peanuts since peanuts is a lot cheaper. I bet you can experiment with different nut for a different nut butter taste as well. Happy trying!
1 1/2 cup ground toasted almonds
4 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
2 Tbsp. peanut oil (for smoother easier spread)
In a food processor, add in ground toasted almonds, process until wet. Add in brown sugar and cocoa powder. Process until butter like (it takes a while but it will reach there), lastly add in peanut oil and process until smooth. Keep in an air-tight container and keep refrigerated. Use within 2 weeks.
