Hemp Seed and Walnut Spread/ Dip

This delicious butter can be spread on oatcakes, like nut butter, or can be used as a dip for celery or carrots. Either way it makes a healthy and delicious snack. The butter is a great source of omega 3 essential fatty acids, as well as protein, which will help to keep you going until your next meal. Enjoy!


  • 150g raw shelled hemp seeds
  • 3 tbsp walnut butter
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 glove garlic, crushed
  • Pinch of pink salt or sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2-3 tbsp walnut oil (or olive)


Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend to form a smooth, creamy dip.

Add a little more oil if necessary to achieve desired consistency.
