Fruit and Nut Butter Spread
Because I live overseas, it’s almost always cheaper to buy individual ingredients than ready-made products. I was also finding it nearly impossible to find either peanut butter or jam that didn’t have loads of sugar added to them. So I came up with this healthy and frugal alternative.
1/4 cup raw or lightly roasted nuts (peanuts, cashews, walnuts, almonds, etc.)
1/4 cup fruit (bananas, berries, mango, etc.)
Water or oil (optional for consistency)
Honey and salt to taste
Put the nuts in a blender/grinder and grind until as fine as possible. Add the fruit and blend. If your fruit does not add enough liquid, add a little water or vegetable oil. You can also add honey and salt to taste.
Spread on sliced homemade bread or crackers and enjoy. Sandwiches can be made in advance for school lunches and frozen for a couple of months. (They never last that long in my house!) The combinations for this are endless, so we never feel like we’re eating the same PB&J over and over again. Enjoy!
