Raw Walnut Butter

Introduction

Walnuts are one of the most nutrient-dense food sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). They are the only nut that contain a significant amount of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, 2.6 grams per ounce, almost 9 times more than the next closest nut! Walnuts are getting great attention for boosting metabolism so more calories can be burned. Omega-3s help reduce the risk for heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and clinical depression.

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups raw walnuts
    1 tsp. sea salt
    2 tsp. agave nectar
    2 tbsp. olive oil (of course extra virgin)

Directions

Soak walnuts for 12-24 hours. This will release the enzymes. Change the water several times. Using a Vita-mix put in walnuts, sea salt, and agave nectar. Turn mixer on low with speed set to 1. Add the olive oil to get the mixture moving. Turn up the speed gradually to 10, once the mixture is moving well. Finally, put Vita-mix on high for about 30 more seconds. This whole process should take about a minute or a minute and a half.

This will produce a rich, creamy nut butter. Perfect served on apple wedges (see photo), crackers or celery sticks. Once you start making your own butters, you will not return to homogenized store brands.
