I just discovered how incredibly easy it is to make almond butter.  It literally takes two ingredients and a little bit of time in the food processor.  The result is super fresh and delicious!   What I love about making my own is that I know exactly what’s in it and I have control over how much salt goes into it.  If you wanted to, you could also make this salt free, it’s all up to you.

This is the first nut butter that I’ve tried making, but I’m sure you could use this method with whatever nut you like.  Although, depending on the nut, the processing time may be slightly different.

Give this one a try yourself and see just how easy it is.  It’s really delicious on a piece of whole grain toast for breakfast, I also like to add a little bit of jam, which makes it even more delicious!

Almond Butter

  • 1 lb unsalted dry roasted sliced almonds (with no skins)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Place almonds and salt in a food processor.

Process until completely smooth and creamy, about 8 to 10 minutes.

This is what it looks like about halfway through the processing…..

…..and after about 10 minutes, when it’s finished.

Store in the refrigerator.
