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


  1. 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.
  2. Remove from oven and let cool. Usually about 10 minutes or so.
  3. 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.┬áThe 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.
  4. 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.


Special Additions:

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.
