I love Almond butter!! When I ran out the other day I thought it was perfect timing to make my next batch from scratch! If any of you aren’t hooked already, almond butter is nutty, creamy and much better for you than peanut butter.
I put it on my toast, in smoothies and in baked goods! I use a VitaMix so this easy recipe took my me just 15 minutes. If you don’t have one [which I highly recommend], I found these other food processor recipes here and here.
Roasted Almond Butter
3 cups of raw almonds
1/4 cup of canola oil
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Spread your raw almonds along a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are golden and fragrant but not burned.
Cool the almonds and place them in the Vitamix with the canola oil. Turn the blender on variable speed and quickly increase the dial from 1-10, then flip to high for 1 minute. You should start to see buttery, creamy deliciousness and you know it is done!
I moved mine to a glass jar and added about half a cup to a small mason jar for gifting. Perfect as a part of any hostess or party gift!
