My Butter Mix

My Butter Mix

Enjoy the taste of butter with only half the saturated fat. This easy mixture is always soft and spreadable, so handy to have around for cooking, baking, and greasing pans. - Jenny Jones

My Butter Mix


  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature (8 ounces)
  • 1 cup oil (I have used canola & extra light olive oil - now I use expeller pressed avocado oil)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. With an electric hand mixer, beat butter and slowly beat in oil and salt. Use a tall bowl to avoid splatter.
  2. Transfer to a covered container and keep refrigerated.

Note: If using salted butter, reduce added salt to 1/8 teaspoon.

    Can you use Extra Virgin Olive Oil for the “my butter” recipe, or will it congeal too much….

    Thank you for this healthier butter recipe! My husband has health issues that require tight control of sodium and cholesterol. I was so discouraged when trying to find a no-salt, no trans fat butter that wasn’t full of water which makes toast soggy! This blended spread is so easy to make. I deserve a dope slap for not thinking of it myself. DOH! Thank you for your other recipes and videos, too. THANK YOU!

    Thank you so much for this recipe, I used about 2 oz less than 3/4 cup, canola oil, because I thought I would try one batch, did not want it to be oily tasting, I never leave on the counter, refrigerate it at all times, Not oily will use the 3/4 cup canola oil the next bstch, I have been buying this forever, paying almost $4 for a 15 oz tub, this is wonderful, we use it on veggies, pancakes, English muffins, and your lemon blueberry muffins that we love, will try it to prepare pans for baking your wonderful layer cakes that are perfect for 2 people.

    This spread was very good but when left at room temperature it got a bit oily. Can you add less oil to the mix? Any tips on how to get mix off of the mixer blades? Thanks

      Yes, you can mix any ratio of oil to butter. Try 3/4 cup oil to 1 cup butter.

    I stopped buying spreadable butter and now make my own with canola oil,or light extra virgin olive oil. Homemade version has considerably less salt and is more economical, we buy quality butter on sale and freeze. Thank you!
