Homemade Brazil Nut Butter Recipe

Healthy nut butters are becoming seemingly popular because they are delicious, full of nutrients and can be used in so many different ways. I make all sorts of nut and seed butters (pictured on my Instagram page) For this recipe I will share my Brazil nut butter.

Nutritional facts about Brazil nuts: 

  • Full of selenium (immune system, thyroid, antioxidant, helps sleep & stress, blood flow) 
  • High in unsaturated fat and omega-6 fatty acid (lowers bad cholesterol, fights against heart disease) 
  • It’s a complete protein//full of essential amino acids (fights chronic illness, helps with muscle and tissue repair,  and helps with premature aging!)
  • High in copper, magnesium, calcium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, manganese, vitamin E, B complex (overall body energy, immune, nerves, heart, skin protection, mental health) 

What you need:

  • Raw & Cleaned Brazil nuts 
  • Pink Himalayan salt 
  • Coconut oil / Coconut butter 
  • Maple syrup / cinnamon (optional for those with a sweet tooth) 
  • Food processor 
  • Spatula 
  • Tight glass Jar 


Method: 

  • Heat your oven to 200°c
  • On a baking tray lay out the Brazil nuts and bake for 6 minutes 
  • (You can skip the baking process for it to be raw but the roasted taste is very nice) 
  • Add the nuts into a food processor with the coconut oil and salt (and the optional items) and blend for 6-8 minutes stopping every minute to stir around with your spatula 
  • You can blend it more if you like it creamy and less if you like it crunchy 
  • Transfer into a glass jar and store either in the fridge or at room temperate (it will keep for several weeks)
