Almond and cashew butters are hailed as 'gourmet' nut butters, and come with a price tag to match, but making your own couldn't be easier. Roasted, blended and ground to a butter they are lip-smackingly good and cost a fraction of the price.

Sunflower oil is scent-free and burns at a high heat, but cold pressed olive oil is rich in amino acids and nutrients, so I use both as a lubricant to help along the forming of nut butter.

Preparation Time: 1 minute
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 380g jar full

Ingredients
100g almonds
100g cashew nuts
3 Tblsp olive oil
3 Tblsp sunflower oil

Method
Place the nuts in seperate jars, drizzle on half of the oils and place in the oven for 20 minutes at 150 degrees/gas mark 3.



Once roasted remove the nuts from the oven.



Check that each nut is coated in oil and roasted by giving the jars a little shake - even coating is essential for a smooth butter.



Pour the nuts into a food processor.

Place the lid on top and 'blend' for one minute.



The nuts will be ground up and crushed as opposed to ground at this stage, scrape down the sides and pulse again for one minute.



I had to repeat the blend and scrap down process 5 times before I saw any progress, so be patient.

Whilst pulsing the nuts for the last time pour in the rest of the oil, which should help make the nut nutter come together.

Using a spoon scoop out the almond and nut butter, into a jar - I used another peanut butter jar that I'd washed and kept for this sole purpose.

Place a lid on top and store as you would with shop-bought nut butters, either in the fridge or cupboard.
