If you love almond butter, look no further! This easy recipe for How to Make Almond Butter will make you ditch the store bought jars. Only 1 ingredient and made in under 5 minutes!
Never in my life did I think I would make my own nut butter. There are some things that I would just rather buy than make myself. I love almond butter and I spent years trying to find the right brand that has the right ingredients and the right consistency. A few years ago, my sister in law showed me how to make my own almond butter and I was blown away. I’m not really going to take credit for this recipe, because it’s really not a recipe. It’s a guide for How to Make Almond Butter. It’s literally one ingredient and takes about 4 minutes. YUP that’s it!
When my daughter was starting out eating solid foods, I wanted to make sure that I exposed her to tons of different foods. Once she tried peanut butter, I quickly let her try almond butter. It’s a different flavor and tastes a bit nuttier. To be honest, almonds are one of my favorite snacks! A few years ago, my amazing sister in law, Shirley, told me that she makes her own. I was shocked because I didn’t know that it was really that easy. She told me that it’s all about the kind of almonds. And believe me she is right, because I randomly decided to use a different kind, and it was horrible.
If it wasn’t for Shirley, I’d still be buying expensive almond butter instead of making it myself. She is married to my husband’s brother. In the fall of 2019, Shirley, her husband, and their 4 kids moved from Arizona to Indianapolis to be closer to us. They are the only family we have here so it was a true blessing that they uprooted their lives and moved here. I’ve learned so much about cooking and being a mama from her 🙂
Hit the pulse button until all the almonds are chopped into tiny pieces, then hold the pulse button down for 2-3 minutes until the almond butter is nice and smooth. I know you might be thinking “But don’t you need to add something else in there”. No! These specific almonds have all the flavor you need to make this nut butter delicious!
After it’s blended and smooth, just pour it into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks. It’s amazing how easy this recipe is… I will NEVER buy almond butter from the store again. I usually buy a big bag of the Blue Diamond Lightly Salted Almonds for Costco/Sam’s or Amazon and keep it in my pantry, to make Almond Butter or to snack on.
This homemade version will change your life! I use it to make sandwiches, add to overnight oats, add it to my kids snack muffins, and sometimes my daughter just wants a little bite of it on its own!
I hope you enjoy these bites of flavor!
