Walnut & Chia Butter

Another nut butter recipe, this time with the added benefits of Chia! Chia has long be touted as a superfood and can be dated back as a long term staple nutritional food to the Aztecs. Chia is a natural source of Omega-3s, antioxidants and phytonutrients and is a superior plant-based source of protein and fiber.

300g walnuts (use whatever nuts you like if you don’t love walnuts because this is very, well, walnutty. You could use almonds, macadamias, cashews.)
1 cup chia – I used my MILA
1 tbs ground ginger (optional)
1 tbs ground cinnamon (optional)
1-2 tbs coconut oil (optional- I just wanted mine a bit smoother and more buttery and my walnuts were not oily enough)

Lightly toast the nuts, cinnamon & ginger all together in a dry frying pan. Transfer all ingredients to food processor and blend until it becomes butter. Doneski.
