It’s easier than you think to make nut butter. Master this basic nut butter recipe and you’ll never have to eat store-bought again. Plus, store your nut butters in a jar or airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks!

Nut butters are loaded with heart-healthy fats that keep your bad cholesterol in check while heightening your good cholesterol. They’re also rich in selenium, which keeps your thyroid going and can be a good source of protein, depending on which nuts you use. Nut butters are a stellar source of fibre, phosphorous, B vitamins, vitamin E, and zinc.
