Rich, creamy, and slightly crunchy, chia seed butter is a great nut butter alternative that you need to try!

Ingredients

1 cup chia seeds

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 half tsp salt

1 half tsp sugar

Instructions

Step 1 – Measure out your chia seeds, and then pour them onto a baking tray in a thin layer.

Step 2 – Roast your chia seeds at 350 Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes, or until you start to smell the seeds turn roasty; some of the seeds should develop a slightly dark hue.

Step 3 – From roasted, remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes, or until the seeds are only warm to the touch.

Step 4 – Pour your now-roasted chia seeds into a food processor, and add your salt and sugar.

Step 5 – Process your chia seeds into they begin to break down into a powder.

If you find that your chia seeds just will not break down:

Step 6- Pour half of your chia seed mixture into a mortar and pestle, and smash with the mortar until the seeds break down into a powder, and then pour this chia seed powder back into your food processor.

Step 7 –  Add your oil and resume processing, continuing until everything begins to come together into a thin paste.

Step 8 – Remove your chia seed butter from the food processor and store it in a container with a tightly fitting lid in the fridge
