A much healthier alternative to traditional peanut butter AND a very tasty one I might add!
WHAT YOU NEED:
Grape Seed Oil (optional)
Pretty simple ingredients right? Simple is always better when it comes to nutrition, the simpler the better! You can use any amount of walnuts you would like as the recipe will not change due to the fact you may vary the amount of agave based on taste!
Place walnuts in a food processor and blend on high for 1 minute. After that scrape the sides and blend again for 20-30 seconds, repeat this scraping and blending process until the walnuts begin looking like a butter. Then add in a pinch of sea salt and agave to taste (you wont need much). Continue blending until agave and sea salt is mixed in and BOOM it is ready to enjoy =) If you would like the consistency to be a little creamier then you can add 1 tsp – 1 tbsp of grape seed oil during the blending process.
