1 Ingredient ... Homemade Almond Butter

Next on my mission to make things at home is Almond Butter. I LOVE almonds and almonds butter, perfect snack after working out. I always hit up Winco's bulk section and make almond butter. Now at $7.99 a pound I wanted to find a cheaper way to make it!  I hit up grocery outlet and found almonds for $3.99 for a little over a pound!  I'm so in then I found that almond butter is just grinding them until they release their own oil and become butter .. yup who would have thunk it!

I found a recipe on Sally's Baking Addiction that confirmed how easy it is to do!


Ingredients:

  • 3 cups almonds

Directions:

Pour almonds into food processor. Process until the nuts go from coarsely chopped, to crumbly, to finely ground. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed.
Process again until the almonds resemble a thick and relatively smooth almond butter.
ALEXIS NOTES:  Now don't get worried when it seems like it's not turning into anything.  It does take a while for it to turn, you may think your food processor will blow up ... don't worry it won't just keep going.  Then all of a sudden BAM it becomes more liquid.  I like mine to be on the thick side, but it's up to you if you like chunky or smooth.  I also use raw almonds with a little sea salt.


Thanks for Stopping by!
