Brazil Nut Spread

I had some Brazil nuts lying around, and I had no idea what to do with them. Here's what I came up with, it's not half bad.

1.5 c Brazil nuts
1 T vegetable oil (like corn or canola)
1 t blackstrap molasses
2 t maple syrup
1/4 t cinnamon
1/4 t vanilla extract

Blend the nuts and oil in a food processor until the mixture starts to form a mass. Add more oil if necessary. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until it's as smooth as you want it.

It tastes pretty good as a peanut butter replacement for sweet stuff, but since Brazil nuts are so mild, it'd probably be good as a savory spread using olive oil and herbs instead of the vegetable oil and cinnamon.
