How to make Pistachio Butter
Now that you’re on board with making your own homemade nut butter, it’s time to get started! It’s seriously SO easy to make, so you will be enjoying it on a slice of toast or a muffin in no time at all! Here’s how:
Fire up the oven and spread the pistachios on a large baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until they are nice and toasted.
Place the nuts in a large food processor, along with the salt ,and process until the butter is smooth and well blended. This will take some time, as the seeds take a while to break down and release their oils.
Once smooth, stream in the honey and blend until smooth.

There are so many possibilities when it comes to dressing up this pistachio butter recipe a little bit to take it to the next level. Add in a dash of cinnamon for a bit more warmth, throw in a splash of vanilla if that’s your favorite, or you could even toss in some cocoa powder for a chocolate walnut butter variation.

What to use Nut Butter On
There are endless ways to enjoy this tasty nut butter! I recommend baking some warm oat flour banana bread or even a batch of healthy oat bran muffins and spreading some nut butter generously on top! You could also drizzle it over eggless brownies or add a spoonful to your low carb keto oatmeal for an extra dose of YUM!
How to store Homemade Nut Butter
Once you’ve processed up your nut butter, it’s time to store it. I recommend keeping your nut butter in an airtight container or small jar in the fridge. It will last up to about one month in the fridge, maybe longer, so make sure to label it with the date! You can also freeze nut butter and it will last up to 3 months in the freezer.
