This homemade almond butter recipe is INSANELY easy, fast and delicious. I make a batch every week and keep it in the fridge to go on my morning bagel (or sometimes just on a spoon directly into my mouth). My homemade almond butter doesn’t separate like most store bought almond butters do. I absolutely love the consistency and I love being in charge of how much salt goes in the recipe.
With all of the peanut allergies that are around these days, it’s really nice to have an alternative nut butter on hand and this homemade almond butter recipe is perfect for that. My daughter and son both love this homemade almond butter too so it is definitely kid approved!
I prefer to buy the almonds already roasted just because it’s a nice time saver, but if you can’t find them or prefer to roast them yourself, that’s always a good option too. I also (as always) use all organic ingredients! You’ll also need a good quality food processor or blender.
Empty almonds into food processor. Turn on and blend for about 4-5 minutes.
When the almonds reach a consistency that looks like this, turn it off and scrape down the sides with a small spatula.
Let the food processor run until you reach the desired consistency. It should take about 2-3 minutes. You are looking for it to be completely smooth and it will have a sheen to it.
Once you reach the consistency you want, add the salt and vanilla and blend for another 10-15 seconds only. DO NOT OVERBLEND with the vanilla added. It will ruin the consistency.
Give this a try and let me know what you think! It will only take you 10 minutes or less to make.
