Homemade Walnut Butter

Note: Homemade walnut butter... so easy to make!

Making nut butters: making nut butters is one of my favorite things to do, espcially since I like the end product :) Well, here's a tip. If you have raw nuts (as opposed to roasted), then you have to bake them in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes to release their oils. otherwise, if you don't, then you will have a cake-y nut butter. I sometimes like to add coconut oil or other oil to mine so its extra smooth.

Since my walnuts were raw, I roasted them in the oven at 300 for about 10 minutes. Then I dumped in the processor and let it do it's thing...
