You only need 1 ingredient to make this Almond Butter Recipe! It's lusciously creamy and so delicious you'll want to add it to everything!
I absolutely love almond butter! It's probably my favorite out of all the nut butters. The only problem is that it's usually quite expensive and sometimes hard to find. So I started making my own homemade almond butter and couldn't believe how easy it was! It also works out so much cheaper than any store bought almond butter which is a huge bonus too!
I love eating it for breakfast drizzled on Overnight Oats or also spread on toast or even a slice of Banana Bread. You can also enjoy it as a snack with yogurt bowls with fruit and Homemade Granola. The list goes on!
Once you make your own homemade almond butter, trust me you'll never buy it again! It's also super customisable as you can make different flavor variations by adding ingredients such as maple syrup or cinnamon.
You can also use this same method and make other nut butter variations such as peanut butter, cashew butter or a combination of nuts.

How to make Almond Butter
Making the most creamiest homemade almond butter takes no time at all, with only a few simple steps.
- Preheat oven to 180℃/350℉ and place almonds on a baking tray to roast for 10-12 minutes
- Allow nuts to cool down and pour into a food processor or high speed blender and blend
- Stop every few minutes and push down the mixture with a spatula to also give the blender a break and cool down
- Continue blending the mixture until you reach a creamy consistency. It can take about 20-30 minutes. I also like to add in a pinch of sea salt towards the end of blending. Allow the almond butter to cool then transfer it to a mason jar or an airtight container and enjoy!

Tips to make homemade Almond Butter
- Roasting your almonds first makes this almond butter recipe taste even better! It's best to buy raw almonds and roast them yourself. This allows the natural oils to release which makes them easier to blend
- Be patient when blending the mixture. Sometimes it feels like it's never going to blend and become creamy, but don't worry, it slowly will
- Give the food processor or blender a break every few minutes to cool down. At this time, scrape down the mixture which slowly creeps up the sides with a spatula
