Hello! As you may have gathered by my new Twitter profile picture, I’m pretty obsessed with nut butter right now! That’s why I decided to make this super easy homemade almond butter. With only one ingredient, it makes a great healthy spread/dip/thing to eat right out of the container! Here’s the recipe:
- 2 cups of raw or roasted almonds
- Place the almonds in a food processor or dry-blender. I’m not quite sure if a regular blender would work- I haven’t tried it, and the blades aren’t quite suited to hard stuff like nuts.
- Blend the almonds for 2 minute intervals, pausing to stir them around each time. You may have to use the blender-pusher thingy to make sure that the almonds on the sides get redirected into the blade path. At first, it will seem like the almonds will never become a butter, but after about 10 minutes or so, the oils are released and the butter begins to take shape.
- Once the butter is a butter, remove it from the blender and store in the fridge in an airtight container. The longer you blend the butter, the looser and creamier it gets.
That’s about it! Almond butter is great on toast and with fruit, basically anything that goes with peanut butter. I love it because I can’t eat almonds with my braces, so this gives me the almond flavour I love! Bye until my next post;)
