Almond Butter

I love any kind of nut or seed butter. That habit (obsession) can get quite expensive!

You can get almonds at a much more reasonable price in the bulk bin section of your local co-op or natural food store and just make your own.

Here is your ingredient list: almonds.

Yep, that’s it! Now you could add some Himalayan sea salt if you’d like. Which usually I do, but it really isn’t necessary.

It takes a few minutes, but be patient, I swear it is worth it.

  1. Put 1 pound of almonds on a baking sheet at bake at 250 for 15 minutes. Warming them up with help them release their oils better.
  2. Place baked almonds (and salt if desired) in a food processor and set it to high speed. It’ll turn to dust/flour first. Then get clumpy. Keep going. It’ll cream up, I promise. You might need to stop it every 2 minutes to scrape down the sides, but otherwise keep going until it is at the desired consistency you’d like.
