Almond Butter

almond butterA common breakfast or snack in our home is fresh bread, apples or a banana with almond butter. Rich and creamy, it is my favorite nut spread… and a snap to make! All you need are almonds and a food processor.

 

 

 

 

 

Almond Butter
(Making your own almond butter also means that you can control the salt content or add spices, honey, etc. for a delicious treat.)
1) Add 2-3 cups of raw almonds to a food processor. Make sure they are fresh! One rancid almond will ruin the whole lot.
2) Add a pinch of salt if desired, but wait to add spices or honey at the end of blending. The heat created during the long mixing process could spoil their flavor.
3) Blend the almonds, scraping down the sides when needed.
The entire process can take up to 20 minutes for the oils to heat and break down!
The almonds will first turn into almond meal, which can be used to make a number of breads and dessert, then the mix will begin to clump and eventually break down into a creamy spread.
Store your spread in a mason jar in the fridge.
Enjoy!
