7 Nut Butters You Can Easily Make at Home

Why eat nut butters? Well, let’s go over the health benefits of nuts!

  • Nutritious fats: nuts boast large amounts of heart-healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Healthy fats also help keep you feeling satisfied at meal time.
  • Abundance of vitamins: nuts are high in B vitamins (like riboflavin, niacin, and folate) and vitamin E. Vitamin E has antioxidant properties and protects cells from free-radical damage while B vitamins play an important role in energy metabolism.
  • Rich in minerals: nuts contain manganese, magnesium and copper which help maintain bone health. Manganese and magnesium additionally keep blood sugar in check and copper helps the body utilize iron to prevent iron-deficient anemia.
  • Protein power: nuts are a great way to sneak in extra protein into the diet.
  • Phytochemicals galore: besides vitamin E which contributes to antioxidant properties, nuts contain many other antioxidants with more cardio-protective effects.

These health benefits are more pronounced in homemade nut butters without any added sugar or oil, but if you’d rather try store-bought first before hitting the kitchen, check out this article on the best buys!
