How to make your own healthy, creamy and delicious almond butter at home. You can get creative and make your own blends and save money.
- 3 cups raw almonds
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spread almonds onto a baking sheet. Roast in oven for 10-12 minutes. You want them smelling good and browned a bit…not stinky and burned.
- Remove from oven and let cool. Usually about 10 minutes or so.
- Place almonds in food processor and let process until you see almond butter. This part of the process usually takes around 11-12 minutes so please, be patient. The nuts should go from whole, to ground up & choppy, to lumpy, and finally, nut butter. Also, you will more than likely need to stop the food processor periodically to scrape down the sides…perfectly normal.
- Once you have your almond butter like you want it, eat it, show it off, or store refrigerated in a jar. It should last for a few weeks.
Once you have created a creamy nut butter, feel free to get creative. Add 1/4 cup of non-dairy chocolate chips to make an incredibly decadent cocoa almond butter.
Add chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax, etc. to make this nut butter a protein power bomb.
