Homemade almond-cashew nut bread spread

I love bread and my ideal choice of breakfast is still wholemeal-multi seeds-multi nuts-multi-grains bread with some nice jams and bread spreads. But the problem is getting nice jams and bread spreads. Those off-the-shelf jams from the supermarket are often laden with sugar, food additives and preservative, which I hate. So despite being super busy, I whipped up some almond-cashew nut bread spread with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.

I never thought it could be so easy. First I toasted the almonds and cashew nuts in my oven. Then, fished out the blender which I had not used for ages and dumped those nuts in. Drizzle in the extra virgin olive oil and sea salt and mix well. Just add oil until the consistency is not dry  and lumpy but smooth and can be easily applied on the bread. Adjust the salt to suit your taste. You can also add in some sugar if you want.

Now, I have homemade kaya cooked using slow cooker and homemade healthy nutty bread spread! I am so not going to buy sugar-laden jams anymore 🙂 Hmmm, I can even sell my jams in my online store haha! But seriously, I don’t think anyone will buy coz they are expensive. A medium sized jar of almond-cashew jam that I made cost almost RM30 as nuts are very expensive.

  1. very healthy indeed. need to learn how to make kaya from you cos my girls love kaya, and coconut oil is believed to be healthier than most oil.

  2. Hi, can I do the same with almond and walnut? Or could you suggest a recipe for almond and walnut (easy one, please for idiot-bakers like me) coz doc said Vic must eat loads of almond and walnut but she doesn’t like the taste of these nuts on their own…

  3. Irene, you can try almond & walnut but do ensure that the nuts are fresh and no rancid taste. If rancid, it tastes awful. You can also try ABC (almond-brazil nut-cashew nut) – very yummy but those nuts are expensive. I reckon Vic has to eat loads of almonds and walnut for the good oils and DHA? It’s only beneficial if the nuts are raw and not roasted. Coz if roasted, much of the good oil is damaged in the heat.

  4. I really tabik you lah. So busy with the girls, your online stalls, and still can make home-made almond-cashew nut spread. You must be really good in your time-management and have loads of energy. Maybe it’s all the home-made sugarless preservative-free foods that you take!!!

  5. You are really good in this! Seriously, I WOULD buy them if they are available in your online store haha. It looks pretty easy to make. I will definitely try this. Thanks for sharing 🙂
