Instructions

  • Nut’n Seeds: Toast nuts in 350° F. oven for 8-15 minutes. Bigger nuts such as almonds and Brazil nuts take longer than the smaller softer seeds.
  • Blend: Add almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and flax seeds to blender or food processor. Pulse or blend, stopping to scrape the sides and bottom and push nuts down with a rubber scraper, until desired consistency. This could be 5 to 10 minutes depending on the power of your appliance. The mixture will seem grainy but then develops into a smoother texture. If the mixture seems really dry, drizzle in 1/2 teaspoon oil, such as a nut oil (walnut, almond, sunflower) or canola. Add salt and chia seeds at the end. These should be stirred in so chia seeds don’t pulverize. Spoon into a jar. Refrigerate up to 3 months.
