Hello again! 🙂
I wanted to share with you this super simple recipe to make almond butter at home. I first tried almond butter on my last trip to London and it’s become one of my favorite things to eat now. Unfortunately almond butter is sooo expensive here in Norway, so I figured I had to start making my own.
All you need is..
- 250 grams of Almonds
- 1/3 ts of Salt (I used pink Himalayan salt)
- A food processor
- Baking tray
- Container to keep the almond butter in
The first thing I do is set the oven to 180 degres centigrade. I put the almonds on a baking tray with a sheet of baking paper and put them in the oven for about 8 – 10 minutes.
When they’re done I take them out and put them in the foodprocessor and start blending. This is where some patience is required! It will just look like almond crumbles and like nothing is happening for a few minutes, until the oils from the almonds start separating and it starts sticking together. You’ll have to stop the food processor a few times and scrape the (soon to be) butter off the sides during the blending process.
It took about 10 minutes of blending until the almond butter was smooth. But I used an older and not very powerful food processor 🙂 This is when you can add the salt.
And that’s it! 😀 It’s very simple. I hope you’ll try it!
One of my favorite snacks is organic apple slices with almond butter. I know the picture doesn’t look very delcious, sorry about that. lol
