Recipe Notes

1.) If you prefer more of a toasted, nutty walnut butter then toast you walnuts in the oven at 350F (175C) for roughly 5 minutes. Be careful not to burn them! Add the toasted walnuts to your food processor and make the same way you would make the raw variety.2.) 2 cups raw walnut halves make 3/4 of a cup raw walnut butter. Keep that in mind when trying to adjust the amount to fit recipes.
