Flax Seed Butter Recipe
Flax seed butter or flax seed spread recipe with step by step photos.
Flax Seeds - 100 gms
Coconut oil / Olive oil - 1/3 cup
Sugar / honey / maple syrup - 2 to 3 tbsp
Salt - 1/8 tsp or 1 pinch
Dry roast flax seeds in a pan, over medium flame, tossing frequently, till its fragrant. When you take it in your fist, you should feel the heat.
Switch off stove and let it cool down to room temperature.
Transfer to a mixie jar or food processor and run till the flax seeds are ground to a coarse powder.
Add, salt, sweetener of your choice (if using) and run the mixie once again.
Add 1/4 cup oil first and process it till it all comes together in a mass.
Add the remaining oil and grind till the butter forms into a smooth paste. This should take 2-3 mins. Keep scrapping the sides with a spatula.
Flax seed butter is ready.
Transfer into a clean, dry jar and keep it refrigerated.
Use it as a spread on breads, drop spoonfuls while making smoothies, swirl some spoonfuls into your porridge or just eat it plain straight from the bottle.
I used coconut oil (which I highly recommend) that took care of the flavouring. If you are using any other vegetable oil, use a dash of vanilla, cardamom or cinnamon.
