I’m not sure why it has taken us so long but we have finally started making our own keto nut butter. We had a few people in the clean and simple reset in August making their own keto nut butter and we decided to give it a go. I was so impressed with how easy it was to make your own keto nut butter. As long as you have a high speed, high power blender, you can make the perfect nut butter at home.
Keto Nut Butter
Erika has been working on the best nut combination for this keto nut butter recipe. She has found that a combination of almonds, pecans and coconut work the best. I absolutely love this flavour combination and I highly recommend roasting the nuts first. It is the key to getting a real depth of flavour into the nut butter.
Keto nut butter is one of those things we like to have in the pantry as it’s so versatile. We like to add some on top of our chia pudding or yoghurt to add some more flavour. I have also been known to just eat it with a spoon straight out of the jar.
As I travel a lot, I like to take nut butter in pouches for a driving snack. When we started making our own this became less of an option, as we had no way of portioning it into an easy to consume packet. This got me thinking, I wonder if the baby food reusable pouches will work. So I have ordered some of these reusable pouches to try. They haven’t arrived yet, but I am hoping they are a more sustainable solution for me.
The best Keto Nut Butters
The thing I love about making your own keto nut butter is having control of the ingredients. All we put in ours are the nuts. No vegetable oils or sugars. We love the flavour of this nut butter and when we roast the nuts first it adds a real delicious roasted flavour to the nut butter.
While we are big fans of making our own now, we also have a good knowledge of the best ones to buy and where to buy them. If you are looking to buy nut butter when you are at the supermarket you want to look at the ingredients. Look for nut butter that has only nuts as the ingredients and maybe salt also.
These are the nut butters that we would recommend;
- Artisana. We love the Artisana brand of nut butter. The ingredients are clean and they have so many different nut butters to choose from. They have coconut, almond, cashew, walnut and pecan. They are also organic, so a win-win. We order ours from iherb.
- Perfect Keto. We love Perfect Keto products. They have some delicious flavoured nut butter and they use erythritol as the sweetener. They have chocolate hazelnut, almond butter, snickerdoodle and macadamia vanilla. I really like the snickerdoodle flavour. We also have a 20% off discount code for Perfect Keto – HAVEBUTTERWILLTRAVEL
- Noya. Noya has a wide range of different nut butter. Some can be found in Australian supermarkets and some can be found at Low Carb Emporium. The range they have is cashew, ABC (almond, Brazil, cashew), almond, Brazil nut and flaxseed, almond chia, hazelnut, macadamia, cashew, ABC chia, pistachio and royal (almond, macadamia, cashew and Brazil) We also have a 5% off discount code for Low Carb Emporium – HAVEBUTTER5

Recipes using nut butters
Not only are nut and seed butters great for drizzling on chia puddings or yoghurt, we love to use them in low carb cooking and baking too! Here are some of favourite keto-friendly recipes using nut butters;
- You can use any type of nuts you prefer in your nut butter, we just love the combination of almonds, pecans and coconut.
- If you would prefer not to roast the nuts before making your nut butter you can. We just like the additional flavour that roasting the nuts gives to the nut butter.
- It is going to be important that you use a high power and high-speed blender as it needs a lot of power to blend the nuts.

Keto Nut Butter
This keto nut butter recipe is so easy to make and so much more cost effective than buying nut butters. It also allows you to control the ingredients that go into it. We like to store ours in some sterilised glass jars and it should keep well in the cupboard for around a month. I will say it never lasts that long in our house.
