Homemade Nut Butter

A simple recipe for homemade nut butter than can be swapped for any nut you have on hand. Includes price breakdown to see if making your own is worth it!


  • 2 cups nuts
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • salt (optional, to taste)


  1. Using a large food processor or a blender*, grind nuts into a fine powder, approximately 2-10 minutes.
  2. Add the melted coconut oil and continue processing, scraping down the sides as needed, until the nuts have released their natural oils and the butter is smooth and creamy, approximately 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add optional salt and any other additional flavors once the nut butter is finished, and process for 1 minute to incorporate well.


*I personally use a Blendtec with the twister jar for homemade nut butter, but most blenders and food processors will work too. Depending on your equipment, it might take less time, or more time, to get a creamy nut butter.
*2 cups of nuts makes approximately 1 1/2 cups of nut butter. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
