Alternative Butter Recipes

Heavenly Popcorn Topping

2 Tbs. flax seed oil
pinch of sea salt
1 Tbs. Good Tasting Yeast

Blend ingredients in cup and pour over popcorn as you would melted butter. I serve this to my children without their knowing it was not butter. They actually commented on how especially delicious the popcorn seemed to be. In this case, what they didn’t know won’t hurt them! Do not heat the oil for it is extremely sensitive to heat. Always make fresh and serve immediately.

Happily munch and crunch, free from the damage of trans-fatty acids and free radicals, filling your cells with minerals and B vitamins.

Flax Seed Butter

2 Tbs. flax seeds
1/2 tsp. honey
2 Tbs. good Tasting Yeast
2 Tbs. water
pinch of salt

Grind flax seeds to a fine powder in coffee grinder. Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Add salt to taste. If you are putting the butter on potatoes or cooked vegetables, you can also add onion powder, garlic powder, Vegit or any seasoning of your choice. Flax butter needs to be eaten fresh because of the delicate essential fatty acids in the flax seeds. The good tasting yeast gives this spread a distinct buttery taste. The flax seeds produce a slightly nutty flavor. We think it tastes better than butter.

Almond Butter 

Raw almonds
pinch of salt

Almond butter can be made fresh daily in small batches or kept in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Add desired amounts of almonds and grind in your coffee grinder. Add honey and mix well with water for desired constancy. Mix in a pinch of salt and cinnamon. Honey can be replaced with cold pressed flax oil or pumpkin oil for a richer butter. This basic recipe can be used for making any nut butters. Experiment to find what is you and your family’s favorite nutty flavor. A Champion juicer makes an excellent almond butter.
