Thermobexta’s ABC Nut Butter

Nut butter is so easy to make in your thermal mixer. It’s a staple in our house and our favourite mix is A-B-C: Almond, Brazil nut and Cashew. You can use any combination of nuts you have on hand, though.

180g almonds
100g Brazil nuts
100g cashews
30-50g oil of your choice (I use macadamia oil)
1 tsp vanilla powder (or 2 tsp vanilla extract), optional
1/2 tsp salt (optional)

1. Place nuts in a medium-sized frying pan. Toast for 6-8 minutes, until lightly browned. Be sure to toss the nuts regularly to ensure they don’t burn.

2. Transfer toasted nuts to mixer bowl. Add 30g oil, vanilla and salt. Blitz for 3-5 minutes/speed 9/MC on, pausing roughly every 30 seconds to scrape down sides of bowl. Add 10-20g of the remaining oil if necessary after a couple of minutes of blending.

3. When oils have been released from nuts and texture of the nut butter is smooth and spreadable, transfer to a clean jar. Store in the fridge.

You may like to add a little sweetener to this – a teaspoon or two of honey is my favourite but any type of sweetener will work nicely.

  1. Your but bitter actually looks a bit oily and smooth as it should. Mine looks quite crumbly still and I even added an additional 10g of oil on top of the 40g. Any ideas?????


    1. Hi Emily, did you stop to scrape it down every 30 seconds? And did you toast the nuts? If yes to these questions then processing longer should do the trick and possibly try another 10g oil.


      1. Yes I did all those things! I processed long and will add a touch of oil to jar when I put it in. The mix is more moist now but still drier than I’d like. Thx for the speedy reply!


      2. I was a little bit stressed about burning my nuts and maybe I took them off a little early which meant the oils didn’t release so well??? Just putting this note here for other who might be having the same problem. I ended using an extra 20g maca oil total and an extra 1min processing time stopping every 30 secs to scrape down.


      3. Thanks, Emily. Toasting nuts longer will definitely make a big difference 🙂 Also, I have amended the time from 3 mins to 3-5 mins and the oil from 30-40ml to 30-50ml as someone else’s came out a bit dry last night xx

  2. This nut butter is by far my favourite! I found i had to process it quite a bit longer to get it to release the oils and get really nice. I also put in less salt but would leave it out next time.

  3. I’ve tried a few different nut butter recipes but this is far the best. I didn’t have Brazil nuts so used extra cashew & almonds. Beautiful.


  4. My first ever attempt at a nut butter and it worked perfectly! Thanks so much! Yummy on toast, on celery with sultanas or with apple slices. And of course in your sesame seed bars. I didn’t have quite enough brazil nuts so just added more of the others and still perfect. 🙂
