Why it’s so good for you:

Nut and seed butters may contain a significant amount of fat per serving, but they're the types of fat that benefit heart health, reduce the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes, and even lower the risk of obesity! Plus they contain protein, fiber, B vitamins and antioxidants, making them a great slow-releasing source of energy!

I tried this and I could not get my butter to good consistency, it was really dry. I tried adding more oil but it did not help. What did I do wrong?

Hello Leonie, if your nut butter is too thick for your liking, you can blend in a little bit more and add (more)oil gradually to help smooth it out. Unflavored oils like safflower oil work especially well. Keep this addition as your very last step as it’s often unnecessary to add any oil in at all. I hope this information somehow helps ~ Ivory

Is it necessary to dehydrate the nuts?

Hello Kimberly. Yes, it is necessary to activate nuts as the substances which block nutrient absorption are disabled, whilst the other beneficial nutrients remain intact. You will end up with a delicious, nutritious snack that your body can easily digest and absorb! Kindly check this article for more information http://www.foodmatters.com/article/should-you-activate-your-nuts-and-seeds. ~ Karelle

Hi Ellen, you can keep nut butters for several weeks in a glass jar with a cover in the fridge. You can also freeze nut butters for up to 4 months. :-)
