Homemade Almond Butter.
Looking for a simple homemade almond butter recipe? It doesn’t get easier and healthier than this.
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 Master Prep 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.
Bonus: it’s only $40 and has lasted me years.
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. I am in no way being paid to sponsor Ninja, but you should definitely look into purchasing one.
So there you have it. Isn’t making almond butter at home simple? And much cheaper than buying it for $10 a jar at the store.
Homemade Almond Butter
Yield: 1.5 cups
Looking for a simple homemade almond butter recipe? It doesn't get easier and healthier than this.
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
- 3 cups almonds* (I always use dry-roasted, unsalted)
Pour almonds into food processor. Pulse/process until the nuts go from coarsely chopped, to crumbly, to finely ground. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed.
Process again until the almonds resemble a thick and relatively smooth almond butter.
*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.
*You may add 1-2 tablespoons of a neutral tasting oil during the blending process to make the almond butter extra creamy.
