Homemade almond butter, like my homemade honey roasted peanut butter, is made on the regular in my kitchen. I slather it on top of whole wheat pancakes, throw it into almond butter chocolate chip cookies, breakfast cookies, healthy strawberry oat squares, and have even used it to make these Reese’s bars before.

I eat it with apples, carrots, crackers, pitas, bananas, with jam, nutella, in protein smoothies, on frozen yogurt, and on waffles. I am all about almond butter, all the time. And you will be too once you taste how incredible this stuff is!

Making it is a cinch. First, start with whole almonds. I typically use dry-roasted, unsalted almonds. Feel free to use salted if you prefer. Sometimes I add a few honey roasted peanuts to the mixture so there is a slight honey-roasted taste to my almond butter. That’s optional.

Here is the blender/food processor I have. This Ninja comes with a large container for blending drinks and a smaller container I use for food processing. I make all of my nut butters in the smaller container.

Blend and pulse the almonds for minutes until it reaches this consistency:

Crumbly, gritty almond meal.

Stir it around with a spoon and scrape down the sides. Then, continue to blend until smooth:

I want to (and have) just dug into all that almond butter gloriousness with a spoon. It is unbelievable! Making the homemade almond butter will probably take you about 5 minutes, depending on your food processor/blender’s strength.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups whole almonds (I always use dry-roasted, unsalted)
Special Equipment

Directions:

  1. Pour almonds into your food processor and pulse/process until the almonds go from whole to coarsely chopped to crumbly to finely ground. If they aren't coming together easily, add up to 1 Tablespoon of oil such as canola oil, peanut oil, or vegetable oil. Process again until the almonds resemble a thick and relatively smooth almond butter.
  2. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. But it won't last that long!

Additional Notes:

Sometimes I add 1/2 cup of honey roasted peanuts to the mixture so there is a slight honey-roasted taste to my almond butter. That's optional.
