Homemade Almond Butter - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

I had myself a little ALMOND PARTY this weekend.

I'm beginning to realize just how many things you can make from nuts. So, fair warning, this is likely the beginning of a long series of nut-related recipe posts. Up today - almond butter!

Since I purchase this delicious protein-filled creamy delight by the jar on a weekly basis, I thought it was worth a shot at making it myself. Turns out, like most things I'm dabbling in, it's not that hard.

Ingredients:

1 bag of raw almonds (about 2 cups)

Pinch of Salt

4 tbsp light flavored oil (I used Canola, but think Almond Oil might be the best)

toasting almonds for almond butter

Place the almonds on a cookie sheet, and bake for 5-10 mins at 500 F. Be sure to not burn the almonds. If you burn your nuts, start over.

blending up almond butter

Place your roasted almonds in a food processor with a punch of salt and start her up!

Blend, blend, blend until creamy.

This will take a while, but you'll start to see the almond meal sticking together and releasing its oil.

I like my almond butter really smooth, so I added a bit of canola oil to help it along the way.

That's it! Creamy, delicious almond butter that tastes WAY better than the stuff from the store. Easy, right?
