Toasted Walnut Butter

Step aside peanuts and almonds; there’s a new nut that makes a mean butter!

Ok I”m not serious.  Peanut and almond butter are staple food groups in my diet, but this walnut butter might become a regular in my fridge.  It’s creamy, nutty, velvety bliss.  Because walnuts have a higher fat content than both almonds and peanuts, this butter is super smooth and simply melts in your mouth.  If walnuts are your jam than you need to try this butter asap!
