Nut & Seed butter

This recipe is more of a method than a recipe. You can adapt the quantities and the variety of nuts and/or seeds to suit your palate and needs. This particular combination is great as a peanut butter replacement simply for spreading on toast but can equally be used in other recipes like our Not Another Peanut Satay, GF waffles/pancakes and added to smoothies. You'll need a high power food processor or thermomix to blend the nuts & seeds fine enough. Dry frying or roasting the nuts and seeds adds a delicious intensity to the final butter.
