View Full Version : Nut butters and soaking oats...
01-08-2010, 02:32 PM
I just reread alissa's book and she talks about making nut butters but I cannot find a specific recipe and process to do so...are there any recommendations to make them very smooth? As well I bought some raw oat kernels and I am wondering if there is a procedure or process that works really well. I found a fabulous little organic grainery that is 5 minutes from my daughters preschool...cheap cheap cheap:) I see a mountain of possibilities but not sure how to use all my new found organic seeds and grains.

A Vita-Mix will always make ANYTHING smooth and silky. It will grind, glide and even do a dance for you. I think its a RAWinner:). When making Butters in the Vita-Mix...you don't want to run it too long and have it overheat, thus cooking your butters. This Recipe elieveates that. You can always grind the nuts and add liquid.........
3 cups RAW, sprouted almonds
Grind in Food Processor until rice size bits.
Remove and add to Vita-Mix with Sea Salt, 2 Tablespoons GrapeSeed Oil
Run in the Vita-Mix, alternating the Speed to keep it from getting to Hot, about a Minute or less.

You can just continue to stir and pulse in the Food Processor.
