Ingredients

2 cups of walnut pieces
1/8 tsp of fine sea salt
4 tsp of walnut oil

Directions:

  1. Place nuts into a food processor that has been fitted with a steel blade. Grind the mixture (scraping it down as needed), for 2-3 minutes, or until it resembles a pasty flour that sticks together when you pinch it.
  2. Add the salt.
  3. While processing, gradually add in the oil. Continue to process until the walnuts bind together to form walnut butter.
  4. Store in a closed container in the refrigerator.
