How to Make Nut Butters

The quintessential classic. The brown bag favorite. The time-tested kids’ choice. It’s the PB&J. We’re upgrading the traditional to-go lunch break with an easy DIY nut butter and our perfectly soft Cascade bread baked fresh in our bakery.


Bakery Cascade Bread – The Perfect Sandwich Bread

Our Cascade white bread is our #1 selling sandwich bread. Made from scratch in our stores using the same recipe as our famous French bread, these slices can hold even the heftiest of sandwiches while staying wonderfully soft and fluffy. Try our other sandwich bread varieties including sourdough, sprouted grain and honey whole wheat.


How to Make Nut Butter

Making nut butter at home is surprisingly simple and requires only 1-3 ingredients, depending on how creative you want to get. Choose from a variety of raw, organic nut options in our bulk department.

Choose a base
Raw, organic almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, pecans, or sunflower seeds

Roast ‘em up
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread your chosen nuts on roasting pan and roast for 8-12 minutes or until slightly golden.

Blend it well
Add roasted nuts to food processor and blend, scraping down sides occasionally until a butter forms. This can take up to 10-15 minutes, so be patient.

Add it in
Once creamy, add salt or any additions of your choosing: vanilla extract, hemp seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, dark chocolate, cinnamon or coconut are just a few ideas.

Store it
Pour into glass jars or containers and store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
