I feel like I pay the extra money for convenience. I’m already out and in buying mode, getting all the groceries I need, so it’s simple to just grab a jar and put it in my cart.

The almond butter just jumps off the shelf and feels super easy. But you know what else is super easy but doesn’t cross my mind nearly as much? Homemade almond butter. It turns out amazing every. damn. time. And! Only two steps stand between you and a jar full of amazingness. 

Even Jaryd came home and grabbed a spoonful and was like, “whoooa whaaa? Is this homemade?!” haha it made my day.

Anyway, the other thing is when I buy almond butter in stores, I always look at the ingredients and make sure the ONLY ingredients is almonds. When you make your own, you know exactly what’s going in it. No added sugar. No added oil. Juuuust almonds. 

So let’s make some homemade almond butter!! First, spread your raw almonds out on a baking sheet. Roast them for 10 minutes and then allow them to cool on the pan.

Transfer the roasted almonds to your blender or food processor, and turn it on. I agitate it a lot with the wand as it’s going. You want to let it run for about 5 – 7 minutes. Here’s the key. Right when you think, “Ok it’s as far as it can go” and the almond butter is buttery but still stiff (like the picture below), you want to let it run for another few minutes until it gets crazy amazing smooth and drippy. 

Store in an air tight container in your pantry and enjoy!!
