For those who are allergic to nuts, here is an option for enjoying vegan butter made from sesame seeds.
1 ½ cups unhulled sesame seeds
¼ cup sesame seed oil
1 tbsp. raw, organic honey (optional)
- Place sesame seeds in a shallow pan and roast at 350ºF for about 20 minutes.
- Cool and place in a blender. Cover and blend on medium speed until the seeds are finely ground.
- Add the oil (and honey if used) slowly, blending and stirring until creamy.
You can also buy Hemp seed butter at your Health Shop – it really tastes very nice! You can also dilute the seed-butter with an equal amount of chia gel.
