Homemade Almond Butter Recipe

There is nothing like homemade almond butter – if you try and buy it in store it is priced insanely high.

Little do most people know it is SUPER SIMPLE to make – all you need is a blender or food processor.

One way I suggest cutting the costs of the almonds is buying the almonds in the bulk section you will need about 1.5 cups for this recipe

When I make this recipe for my dad I simply put the almond butter in a clean mason jar and it is good for well over a week ( it never lasts that long through πŸ˜‰ )

Almond butter is a nice change from the normal peanut butter — it tastes much like peanut butter but with an almond flair

I have a homemade peanut butter recipe – check it out HERE

Both recipes are gluten – free πŸ™‚

You are going to need almonds and a little salt. If you are having problems making the butter you can add a little oil

How this process works is that you are processing the almonds to the point where their natural oils are released which makes the “butter”

The butter will not be super smooth but still extremely tasty
