This butter is SO good! And, as you'd expect, it's much better than a store-bought version!
To make this recipe I used dry roasted unsalted almonds; and you definitely need whole almonds because you need their natural oils to help make the butter. I added a little sea salt after the butter had blended, and that's all! Just two ingredients!
How to Make Homemade Almond Butter
Add the almonds to a blender – you'll need something quite powerful and my Ninja is perfect! There are three key stages that you'll go through:
- Almond flour – but keep going!
- Sticky almond flour – but keep going!
- Almond butter
Depending on your blender, it could take up to 15 minutes to make the butter. Once it's made, add the salt, half a teaspoon at a time until it tastes right.
Store the butter in the fridge in an airtight container for up to two months.
