Story time or how I fell in love with nut butter

Let’s take a trip down memory lane back to the year 2007. Little Julia went to the US for the first time for a student exchange. And not only did she fall in love with the country but she also discovered the love of her life: peanut butter!

I don’t know just how many PB&J sandwiches I had in my three weeks in California but it were A LOT!

So ever since then I’ve been obsessing over peanut butter. Over the years I also found my love for other nut butters. One of my all time faves is definitely almond butter. One thing I have barely ever seen in stores anywhere was macadamia nut butter. Which is unfortunate because macadamia nuts are probably ranked under the top 3 of my fave nuts.

Then there was this one moment when I stood in my kitchen and was snacking on some macadamia nuts. I saw my blender that up until this moment I thought wasn’t capable of making nut butter. But I just wanted to give it a try anyways. And I was pleasantly surprised by my handy little kitchen gadget because it did quite a good job. So if you are looking for a good blender but you don’t want to spend a lot of money I can just recommend getting a NutriBullet*. I’ve had it for almost 4 years now and I’m using it almost daily.

So I threw in the macadamia nuts and some cashews to make the nut butter more creamy. This alone was already a heavenly combination. But I was in for something a little extra so I added a few more optional (but highly suggested) ingredients.

And now we’re here

That was the story that led up to this moment of me sitting here, typing these words… and spooning this deliciously heavenly MAPLE VANILLA MACADAMIA NUT BUTTER you’ll need to try!

It doesn’t just taste great on it’s own but also on bread or on top of oatmeal. Or really anything you want to eat it with.

  1. Start by blending the nuts in a blender or food processor until they come together into a buttery batter. For me it took about 2 minutes and I had to open the blender and scrap down the sides a few times.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend for another minute.
  3. Enjoy!
