Ingredients

  • 2-4 cups raw almonds
  • 2-4 Tablespoons neutral oil like avocado oil or coconut oil (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool until the almonds are room temperature.

  • Place roasted and cooled almonds in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process until the almonds turn into almond butter, scraping down the sides occasionally. This could take anywhere from 15-25 minutes depending on your food processor. The mixture will be grainy, then turn into a ball and finally turn into smooth almond butter. If even after 20 minutes the almonds aren’t turning into almond butter, you may need to add a little oil to get it smooth, add 1 teaspoon of oil at a time until it starts to get smooth.

  • You can also make almond butter in a high powered blender, like a Vitamix. When using a blender, the almonds will only need to process for a few minutes, but you’ll need the full 4 cups of almonds in order for the nuts to process properly and you may find that you need to add a little oil to get it smooth, add 1 teaspoon of oil at a time until it starts to get smooth.
