This mixed nut butter has a lot of goodness packed in one little jar! It’s made with wholesome ingredients (a variety of nuts and seeds, plus a touch of salt) for one incredible taste! Making nut butter at home is easy and you’re going to want to make this one again and again. It’ll be your new favourite thing to spread on toast!
If you’re a fan of homemade nut butters (like me), then this mixed nut butter is for you!
A while back, I came across a store-bought version. Once I tried it, I was hooked. And you know I had to make a homemade version.
Once you make it, you’re always gonna want some on hand too!
What type of spread do you enjoy on toast? I do love plain ol’ butter, but there’s nothing like scratch made nut butter.
I like my bread sliced thin and toasted on just one side. We have an old-fashioned toaster that toasts one side at a time. It’s old as heck, but it’s the best!
How to Make Mixed Nut Butter
Full details on how to make homemade nut butter are in the recipe card below, but here are the basics:
- Place all your nuts and seeds (except chia and sesame seeds) in a food processor.
- Cover and process. It’s going to look ‘sandy’ at first, but it will come together.
- Keep processing, stopping as necessary to scrape the sides of the processor with a spatula.
- Once everything is nice and creamy, stop and add chia seeds, sesame seeds and salt. Give another little process. And, that’s it!

Do I Need to Add Oil?
Not at all!
All the ingredients are simply placed in the food processor and processed. Nothing to it!
As I mentioned previously (when I made homemade roasted almond butter), there’s going to be a point when you are mixing the ingredients up and you think ‘nope, this ain’t gonna work.’ Trust me, friends, it will. Then, you’ll be left with the most delicious, wholesome, mixed nut butter.
Of course, food processors vary in strength so if you want to divide the recipe in half (to make things easier on your processor) go for it!
If you don’t have the exact quantity of each nut and seed, no worries! If you have more, say, almonds, on hand than cashews that’s ok. Just use more almonds and less cashews.
Speaking of nuts, opt for ‘unsalted’ so you can control the salt content.
Salt was added to this seed and nut butter, but you can omit if you like.
Use fresh nuts and seeds as it will have an impact on your overall finished recipe.
Enjoy on toast, in smoothies or straight outta the jar (like I sometimes do)!
This makes for such a lovely homemade gift. Aren’t homemade food gifts the best?
Hope you love this mixed nut butter recipe as much as we do!
