The Best Simple Homemade Almond Butter

Almond butter

I’m not usually one to brag, but this almond butter is unparalleled. Imagine the best tasting thing you’ve ever had in your life. Okay imagine that feeling, but multiply it times ten. That’s what you’re going to taste with this recipe. Anddddd, besides the taste, it’s so easy to make, only has three ingredients, and isn’t going to break the bank like those store-bought almond butters. 10 dollars for a tiny jar of almond butter?! Never in my life!

I try to avoid buying store bought nut butters whenever possible because they’re SO overpriced, they can have preservatives, sugars, and other unnatural ingredients lurking in them, and it’s unnecessary to buy them when they’re so much cheaper and easier to make at home! I recommend finding a store that sells nuts in bulk (I go to Bulk Barn because they always put out coupons) and stock up on my favorite nuts! Then all you have to do when you’re running low is break out the blender and throw your nuts in then bam: instant nut butter. Easy as that.

What’s great about almond butter in particular is the amazing health benefits you get from almonds! Those sneaky little guys are full of fiber, protein, healthy fats, vitamins E and B12, manganese, magnesium, copper, and phosphorus.

MEGA NUTS.

So next time you’re out and about, skip the store-bought nut butter and give this a try! You’ll instantly hop on my #homemadenutbutter bandwagon.

The Best Simple Homemade Almond Butter

  • Servings: About 2 cups
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 3 cups roasted unsalted almonds
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender. Start it on low and slowly increase the speed (scraping the sides as necessary) until the almonds have turned into a smooth, creamy butter. I find this generally takes about 7-10 minutes to reach full creaminess potential.
