A Vegan Breakfast Essential: Vegan Butter

A Vegan Breakfast Essential: Vegan Butter

The ultimate vegan breakfast staple is vegan butter. Perfectly paired with jam or on its own slathered on toast.

One thing I loved before going vegan was butter. I enjoyed it on my toast in the morning, slathered on corn or the buttery taste in baked goods. Now, I know it was not the best thing to have in my diet but I loved the taste! When I went vegan I resorted to vegan butters like Earth Balance and Miyokos – both fabulous products. However, as I’ve grown on my journey I now aspire to eat a more whole foods plant based diet, even though I still believe butter is a vegan breakfast staple! So, of course I had to figure out how to make my own. Now, I’d like to share this simple recipe with you. Let’s Partii!

Gather Ingredients

Did you know, according to an NPR article, the rich history of butter may be traced back to the rolling hills of ancient Africa? It’s an interesting story and one definitely worth the read. A far cry from this six ingredient recipe we’ll be making in the comfort of our own homes. Here’s what you’ll need.

  • Macadamia nuts
  • Nutritional yeast
  • Coconut oil
  • Tahini
  • Plant Milk of choice (I recommend using oat milk or macadamia nut milk)
  • Salt

Make the Vegan Butter

This recipe gets even better. Not only is it only six ingredients but there’s only three steps. Simply blend all the ingredients together in your food processor, then spoon mixture into a silicon butter mold, now freeze. I recommend you freeze overnight. I tried taking it out earlier and it was a bit too soft for my preference. You may keep in the freezer for up to eight weeks. If kept in the refrigerator, store for up to one week.

This is great spread on morning toast or something similar but not good for baking or cooking.
