    Antioxidant-rich pistachios make a wonderful nut butter on their own. However, stir in a couple of spoonfuls of matcha green tea powder, which is an antioxidant powerhouse in its own right, and you have a unique spread that tastes good and is good for you too.

    Tip

    Pistachios are one of the most vitamin B6-rich foods around.

    Directions

    01

    Preheat ven to 375 F (190 C).

    02

    On rimmed baking tray, spread out pistachios in a single layer. Toast in oven until fragrant, about 7 to 9 minutes.

    03

    While nuts are warm, transfer to food processor fitted with steel blade attachment. Process, scraping down sides of bowl as needed, until pistachios transform into a smooth paste. Be patient, as this will take about 10 minutes.

    04

    Add salt, matcha, cinnamon, coconut nectar, and oil. Continue to process, scraping down sides of bowl as needed, until well incorporated and mixture is smooth, about another 8 minutes. Add a little more coconut oil if needed. Transfer to airtight jar and keep refrigerated for up to 1 month.
