FULL OF GOODNESS AND PROTEIN, THIS IS THE PERFECT HEALTHY SNACK TO ENJOY EVERY DAY!
We all know peanut butter, but I discovered other kinds of nut butter, including almond butter, a few years ago and all I can say is that I am seriously addicted to all of them!
I love almond butter, hazelnut butter, pecan butter, you name it! I used to buy store bought organic butter, until I discovered how easy it is to make nut butter at home. All you need are some amazing nuts and a food processor, job done!
Almonds are full of goodness – so rich in nutrients, including magnesium, vitamin E, iron, calcium, and proteins, plus they have more fiber than any other tree nut. And, once you try your own homemade almond butter, you won’t buy it ever again. It’s so easy to do and much cheaper.
I love almond butter on wholegrain toasted bread for breakfast, stirred in porridge or straight out of the jar with a spoon!
I prefer to use roasted almonds as you get a slightly deeper flavor, but you can use raw almonds too. You can keep the almond butter in a sealed jar, or if you keep it in the fridge it will last for over a month, but I love to keep it at room temperature and I have never had problems with it, but this might be because a jar never lasts me for more than 2-3 weeks!
Homemade Almond Butter
- 2 cups (280g) raw almonds (I prefer organic)
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Roast the almonds for 6-8 minutes and allow to cool before processing.
- Place the almonds in a food processor and begin to blend. Depending on your food processor, it will take 10 to 15 minutes to reach the perfect smooth liquid consistency. If the almonds stick to the sides, run a spatula alongside the bowl and keep processing. You will feel like nothing is really happening but be patient, and if your food processor is overheating turn it off for a few minutes and let it cool down. After a while the magic will start happening – the oil contained in the almonds will break down and after a few more minutes you will have a smooth almond butter.
- Store the almond butter in an airtight jar or container and enjoy!
I am sure you are going to love this homemade almond butter! Let me know once you try it!
