Servings 16 serving
Calories 196 kcal

Equipment

  • 1 heavy duty blender or food processor

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups raw almonds

Instructions
 

Roast the Almonds

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Spread the raw almonds on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Roast the almonds for 10-12 minutes, stirring once or twice to ensure even roasting. They should be slightly golden and fragrant.

Cool the Almonds

  • Allow the roasted almonds to cool for a few minutes until they are warm but not hot.

Blend the Almonds

  • Transfer the roasted almonds to a food processor.
  • Blend the almonds continuously, scraping down the sides as needed, until you achieve a smooth, creamy consistency. This can take 10-15 minutes, depending on your desired texture.

  • If the almond butter seems too dry or thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of light olive oil to help achieve the desired consistency.

Store the Almond Butter

  • Transfer the almond butter to a clean, airtight container.
  • Store the almond butter in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.

Enjoy

  • Spread your homemade almond butter on toast, use it in smoothies, baking, or enjoy it straight from the spoon!
