- 1 cup of Farmer's Market brand of Pure Pumpkin, Sweet Potato or Butternut squash

Omega Nutrition. Also making your own nut butter is really fun and easy. I took hazelnuts that I bought in bulk and put them in the food processor. At first it made a loud crushing sound. Then a type of flour looking mixture emerged. But you just let the processor keep going. It will starts to form clumps, and then finally it becomes runny and smooth, and I had hazelnut butter! 3 cups make a big jar.
Other additions or variants include chocolate chips, or some cocoa nibs. And other times, I use the Now Brand egg white protein powder with coconut milk and and sweet potatoe puree, mixed with dark chocolate chips and raw cocoa powder, spiced with a little red/cayenne pepper and its like chocolate mousse.
