How to make homemade almond butter

To make this homemade almond butter, you'll need about a pound of raw almonds (we bought them in bulk here), plus a powerful food processor or high-powered blender (like this or this). (The food processor will run at high speed for about 15 minutes, so be aware that the motor will be running and may heat up if an over tax is applied.)

We start by roasting the almonds in the oven for about five minutes. Roasting the almonds first gives the finished almond butter a delicious and rich flavor, plus the warmer nuts will also be more easily processed into butter.

Place the hot walnuts in a food processor, secure the lid, and process on high until smooth and creamy, ten to fifteen minutes, depending on the size and power of your food processor.

You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally to make sure all the almonds are processed. And, if it seems like your food processor is starting to overheat, rest from the process until it cools down.

Once the almond butter is smooth and creamy, stop the processing and pour it into a jar (we like these Weck jars) or other airtight container. (If you process for too long, the oils will begin to separate and you will lose that creamy consistency.) Keep your homemade almond butter in the refrigerator for up to two weeks (if it lasts that long!).

Description

We like our almond butter the way it is, but for added flavor, feel free to add salt, honey, etc. But be aware that adding additional ingredients can shorten the shelf life of finished almond butter.


Ingredients

1 pound raw almonds (about 3 cups)


Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place the almonds on a baking sheet and bake for five minutes.

Cool slightly, but still hot, place in the food processor with steel blade and press the mash button.

The complete process to go from raw almonds to almond butter is approximately 15 minutes, so if your food processor gets too hot, let it cool every five minutes or so.

You will see the pieces get smaller and smaller until the mix finally starts to go from a milled to powdery and creamy texture.

During the process, you may need to scrape down the sides to make sure the blades continuously work the mixture. Once it begins to move into the creamy stage, the mix will automatically pick up the ground almonds from the sides as it becomes creamy.

The final mix should be creamy like peanut butter with little visible almond spots. If you process too long, the oils will extract from the almonds and begin to separate, so once they're creamy and smooth, stop the machine, scrape in a bowl, and serve or store for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.
