Homemade Almond Butter

Want to know how to make your very own homemade almond butter?

It’s really simple.

Step 1: Buy some almonds. 

I like raw almonds, but you can buy them roasted (or flavored) or roast them yourself, if you want.

Step 2: Put the almonds in your food processor.

Step 3: Process the almonds.

They’ll start to break apart – just keep going.  (And if your FP is little like mine and you don’t want to burn it out, shut it off every couple of minutes to give it a rest.)

It might take a little while – but just keep going!  Eventually, the oils in the almonds will start to naturally turn it into butter; you don’t need to add a thing.

And after a little bit of mixing, voila!  Your very own homemade almond butter – no crazy added ingredients necessary.  (Remember this when you go to grab a jar of nut butter off the grocery store shelf and the ingredients list is anything more than one ingredient long.)

The almond butter is delicious alone, but if you want to, some things you can add for fun are:

  • Coconut oil
  • Vanilla
  • Maple syrup
  • Honey
  • Cocoa powder
  • Chocolate chips (let’s face it, adding chocolate chips always makes things more fun)

I’m going to try homemade peanut and cashew butters next!  What kind of homemade nut butters are your favorite?
