Almond butter is so easy to make at home! Just make sure you have a high powered blender or food processor for grinding the almonds into a beautiful paste. For a honey roasted almond butter, just add honey, 1 Tbsp at a time and taste until desired sweetness.
Homemade Almond Butter
3 cups raw almonds, unsalted
Salt (to taste)
Heat: Preheat your oven to moderate, for me this is 180 degrees Celsius. Line a large tray with baking paper.
Bake: Spread the almonds onto the paper in a single layer. Cook for 8 minutes, remove from the oven and gently stir, cook for another two minutes or until almonds are deliciously fragrant and golden. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with salt.
Blend: Pour the almonds into your blender or food processor and blend until you have a smooth nut butter. If the nuts are not turning to a paste you can add oil, 1 Tbsp at a time, and continuing to blend until you reach your desired consistency. Store in a glass jar or container in a cool dry area.
