Almond Butter and other nut butters are so easy to make that once you start making them you’ll wonder why you ever bought them from the store. The only thing you need is a high power blender or food processor. My favourite nut butter to make is almond butter but you can make any combination you like including, cashews, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and the list goes on.
Here is my very simple recipe for almond butter that’s simple and fast and ready to go for your morning toast.
1 cup almonds (toasted or raw – toasted give a bit more flavour)
1 TBSP almond oil – use as desired
1/2 tsp sea salt
For Thermomix users, blend almonds on speed 9 for 1 minute. Add salt, then reduce speed to 5 and add almond oil to desired consistency. Put almond butter in sealed jar and enjoy.
For non-Thermomix users follow similar instructions and just follow your judgement to reach desired consistency.
*Note. I tend to only make a small amount at a time so it stays fresh and gets eaten before it gets a chance to go rancid. When making your own nut butter there are no preservatives (thankfully) and I like to keep my nut butter in my pantry so it’s nice and soft.
