I’ve been on a nut butter craze lately, and I’ve bought almost every type of nut possible within the last couple of weeks.  From walnuts to almonds, peanuts to cashews, and pecans to pistachios.  I even bought some peanuts, marcona almonds, and brazil nuts.

Some nuts can be expensive, so it’s best to find the best deals possible.  I’ve found that buying crumbled nuts rather than whole nuts are cheaper, and buying certain nuts (like peanuts) in the shell cost less than out of the shell.  And of course, buying in bulk saves money too.  That’s why I bought a 3lb bag of walnuts from Costco.  Oh, those silly impulse buys.

BUT, that 3lb bag saved me tons of money in the end.  I used to buy Artisana walnut butter (also contains cashews) which costs $11.99 per 8oz jar.  That’s twelve bucks for one cup of nut butter.  The 3lb bag of walnuts I got from Costco has the capability of making me six cups (or 48oz) of walnut butter.  One cup of this homemade walnut butter costs only $2.99!!

That’s $11.99 vs $2.99 people.  I can’t believe I ever paid such a steep price for a tiny jar of nut butter.  Making walnut butter at home saves nine dollars.  C’mon, that’s money we could be spending on important stuff.  Like chocolate.

  1. I just made almond butter for the first time yesterday!! I am totally obsessed with homemade nut butters!

  2. I love homemade butter 😀 Walnut is one of my favourite ones 🙂

  3. I normally by it.. I never realized how easy it is to do nuts butter! I will try this for sure!

  4. Great idea! I buy raw almond butter all the time and have never tried making it at home.

  5. Oh dear God this looks amazing! i need a food processor 🙁

    • You should get one! It’s actually more useful than I thought. Even though mine is tiny and can’t handle large loads it’s the perfect size for making nut butters and small portioned things. And I’m happy I didn’t need to dish out $200 for it 🙂

  6. I recently made homemade cinnamon hazelnut butter. It was delicious!

  12. Who likes foods with just one ingredient?…This girl.

    • Me too (one flavor per recipe). Make the nut butter with ONE nut and no extra casings/flavors. Then add extra crap at the table, to small portions only. I have gone as far as using different “flavoring mixtures” on a bite-by-bite basis! Even mix 2-4 kinds of nut butter… again, bite-by-bite. Sure, it slows-down eating a bit, and you use 5 plates that each start to look like a painter’s palette at meal’s-end… but it’s enjoyable as it comes.

  17. Really? Just crush nuts in your food processor and get nut butter! Yummy! I really will do this with several different kinds of nuts and make my own nut butter.

  18. So I’m wondering what the shelf life is on this. I’m an OTR truck driver and sometimes it can be hard to stop and buy things so I try to stock up as much on healthy foods as possible when I get the chance. Would I be capable of making a couple jars and holding them for upwards of a month and a half in a dry storage container, or would it need to be a refrigerated and only for a week or so.

    • If you use roasted walnuts, I think you could go about a month as long as it’s kept in a tightly sealed jar in a cool, dark place. If your truck ever gets hot, it might not keep. If it’s refrigerated, nut butters can last a few months.
      Do you have a mini fridge at all? Maybe that could be a solution! 🙂

    All the others include salt, oil (oil? We’re talking walnuts here!), some exotic cinnamon from who knows where, honey…
    Just give the walnuts a whirl in the food processor and you’ll be happy!
