Easy to make at home, this raw almond butter is a staple in my kitchen. Spread it on sandwiches, use it in nut butter dressing and so much more!
Add almonds to high-speed blender or food processor blend until creamy, stopping frequently to scrape down the sides as needed. If adding in extra ingredients, please do so after you have achieved a creamy consistency.
The total time from beginning to end may take 15 to 25 min, depending on your machine.

To make sure you get that super creamy texture, just when you think you’re done…keep the blender going for another 5 minutes or so. I’ve stopped to soon and had a somewhat pasty batch, it wasn’t bad but the creamier it is the easier it is to spread.
Be sure if adding maple syrup it’s a little warm before adding. If you add cold maple syrup your mixture will seize up a bit and take longer to finish.
Roasted almonds will be fine too!
Enjoy and have fun experimenting with add-ins!
