Walnut Butter with Apple, Maple Walnuts and Cacao Powder Topping


To make your own walnut butter

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C. Add the walnuts to a baking sheet and place on the middle shelf of the oven for 8 minutes.
  2. Remove from the oven and allow the walnuts to cool completely.
  3. Once the walnuts have completely cooled add them to a food processor and blend for 15 minutes until they become a creamy nut butter.
  4. Transfer the nut butter to a jar. Store in a cool dark place and eat within 4 weeks.

To make the maple walnuts

  1. Pour the maple syrup into a small frying pan and gently heat until bubbles start to appear.
  2. Add the walnuts and continue to cook until they are completely coated and become sticky.
  3. Transfer the maple walnuts to a bowl. Slice the apple into segments and place on a plate.
  4. Squeeze over a little lemon juice to prevent them from browning.

To serve, top your Nairn’s Fine Milled oatcake with 3 slices of apple, a teaspoon of walnut butter, a couple of maple walnuts and a dusting of cacao powder.
