I love nut butter but unfortunately, it’s very hard to find in danish supermarkets. Luckily, it’s so simple to make a homemade version. All it takes is a strong food processor and about 10 minutes’ patience. I use nut butters in my morning porridge, on my banana bread, in my chocolate covered dates or I will just eat it straight from the jar when my blood sugar drops in the afternoon (oops).

You can use any kind of nuts or seeds for this. It's a good tip to add seeds to bring the price down a bit as well as add some other nutrients.


Makes: 1 small jar

  • 2 dl sunflower seeds

  • 2 dl almonds

  • 2 dl cashew nuts

  • ¼ tsp vanilla powder

  • 1 pinch of salt


  1. Turn the oven to 180 degrees Celcius

  2. Roast the seeds and nuts in a baking tin in the oven for about 10 minutes until golden

  3. Let the seeds and nuts cool down before you transfer them to a food processor

  4. Blend the nuts for about 10 minutes in the food processor. At first a flour will form, after a few more minutes the oil will be extracted from the seeds and nuts and the mixture will form a ball and finally after about 10 minutes the nut butter will be smooth and delicious – be patient!
