How to Make Almond Butter
Serves: makes 1 cup
  • 2 cups almonds, either raw, soaked and dehydrated or roasted
  • optional add-ins: a pinch of sea salt, a spoonful of pure maple syrup or raw honey, ground flax seed, or a spoonful of raw cacao powder
  1. Place almonds and optional add-ins in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Turn motor on and process, scraping down the sides occasionally until desired consistency is achieved. This can take up to 15 minutes, although roasted almonds take a little less time than raw. Keep in a covered glass container in the refrigerator.
