Nut butter… Slathered them on apples, carrot sticks or celery, spread across banana bread or guiltily eat right from the spoon.

We love opening a fresh jar of this golden, smooth & alluring spread. Dipping in the knife and scooping out that sweet and satisfying nut butter… OK, we’ll stop, the point is that we love them and they make a great, nourishing snack for both big and little kids. We love them until we look at the label and the price tag.

In all of their perceived glory, most store-bought nut butters are made with processed nuts, loaded with unnecessary oils, added sugars and questionable additives.

Typical man complicating what is otherwise a very nourishing pantry staple. Here is our ‘How To’ to creating your own, sans additives so you can enjoy your nut butters knowing they are offering you and your family their full health benefits.
