Thermomix Nut Butter Recipe – Chocolate Peanut Butter

Published

Nut butter can be customised to your favourite consistency when you prepare your own with the Thermomix. Try slightly crunchy peanut butter or a completely smooth hazelnut spread. I’ve even added some chocolate for a real breakfast treat.

Making peanut butter in the Thermomix is a piece of cake. It literally takes just one minute in the Thermomix and you will have a personalised jar of nut butter. I have used loads of different nuts to make a delicious spread and I’ve listed some of my favourites below.

All nuts have a long list of health benefits including healthy fats, protein, fibre and antioxidants, however, some nuts have a few extra health points in their favour.

My Favourite Nuts for Making Butter

Almond Butter

Almonds are rich in antioxidants, provide vitamin E and are thought to help lower cholesterol. They’re a great source of fibre and perform a prebiotic function in the digestive system feeding good gut bacteria.

Hazelnut Butter

Hazelnuts are also packed with nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and antioxidant. Research is being conducted into the effects hazelnuts have on regulating blood pressure and reducing inflammation.

Cashew Butter

Cashews nuts have been called the “feel good nut” They are naturally high in tryptophan which helps our bodies make serotonin. Healthy levels of serotonin contribute to feelings of sexual desire, good mood, and healthy sleep. Cashews are also high in magnesium and vitamin B6 which is linked to stable moods.

Peanut Butter

Yes I know, peanut butter is very basic nut butter and it’s been around forever. BUT, when you make your own it’s delicious! Peanuts consist of the same healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. Plus, it’s rich in fibre, protein and potassium and good for heart health.

How to Use Your Homemade Nut Butter

  • Add it to smoothies, with a frozen banana and your favourite milk. See my Scorched Peanut Bar Smoothie
  • Smother a piece of toast in the spread, then top with fruit, chia seeds or a seed mix.
  • Dip vegetable sticks such as celery and carrot into a pot of nut spread.

Step By Step Guide to Making ANY Nut Butter

Ingredients

250g salted roasted nuts (if using unsalted you will need to add salt to taste).

Method

  1. Place nuts in Thermomix Bowl. (any nuts)
  2. Blend 30 sec/Speed 6. Scrape down the bowl.
  3. Blend 1 min/Speed 7.

At this point, the nut butter should have a spreadable consistency. You can continue to scrape down the bowl and blend until the butter has reached the level of smoothness you desire.

There is no need to add any oil to the mixture. As you blend, the oil from the nuts will make the peanut butter smoother and runnier.

I really hope you have enjoyed this recipe. I know the addition of chocolate to the peanut butter takes the recipe out of the realm of healthy, but I’m all in favour of moderation.

This is one of those treat breakfasts that I’m happy to load up with fruit and serve on occasion to the kids.

    Chocolate and peanuts is a great combo with the sweet and saltiness. This looks much easier than a food processor.

    Hello ! I like very smooth peanut butter, and I am mixing for almost 10 mins and the temperature rised up till like 70 degrees (Celsium)
    Is it okay? The high temperature doesnt make nuts worse or something?

    1. Hi,

      If you want a really smooth peanut butter the only way to really achieve that is to drizzle oil into the bowl as you grind the peanuts. The more oil you add the smoother the nut butter will be, although only start with a small amount 1 tablespoon. The heat won’t hurt the peanut butter but it won’t help it to get a thin consistency. 🙁
