Description

Thick almond butter that you can use for spreads, baking, or snacking. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups washed, raw, unsalted almonds
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite sweetener (I used local, raw honey in this batch)
  • Optional (3-4 tablespoons of avocado oil)

Instructions

Thin consistency:

  • In a food processor, add your almonds and process at the highest speed. 
  • Scrape down the sides as needed and keep blending. 
  • It can take up to 20 minutes for the powder to turn in to almond butter, so be patient. 
  • Once the almond butter is your desired consistency add in your salt and sweeteners. Blend until it is well incorporated. 
  • Scrape it out into an airtight container and refrigerate it for up to a month. 

Thick consistency:

  • In a food processor, add your almonds and process at the highest speed for five minutes.
  • Scrape down the sides as needed and keep blending for 5 minutes
  • Add in your avocado oil, and let blend until it’s the consistency you desire. 
  • Once the almond butter is your desired consistency add in your salt and sweeteners. Blend until it is well incorporated. 
  • Scrape it out into an airtight container and refrigerate it for up to a month. 

Notes

  • If you use the method for thicker almond butter, you can thin it out to your desired consistency with oil or water. I use a tablespoon of almond butter to 2 teaspoons oil or water to thin it out. 
  • Store this in an airtight container in the fridge. 
  • A serving size is one tablespoon. The nutrition facts below do not include the thicker consistency almond butter with added avocado oil
