Homemade almond butter is easy to make, if you have a high speed blender, and is 100% natural.
- a high speed blender
- 3 cups (700 g or 7 dl) raw almonds
Heat the oven to 350 F/175 C. Put the raw almonds on a baking tray and roast for 15-20 minutes.
Always use unsalted roasted almonds. If you don’t roast the almonds you need to add oil, otherwise the butter will be very dry. The roasting combined with the blending releases the oil in the nuts. An alternative is of course to buy almonds that are already roasted.
Pour the roasted almonds into the blender and blend on high, using the tamper, for about 60 seconds. Blend a little longer for a smoother butter.
