Homemade almond butter is fresh, healthy, and so much tastier than store-bought for a fraction of the price. No oil or any other ingredients required.. just freshly roasted almonds and a blender is all you need to make this creamy decadent butter.
To roast the almonds, if using un-roasted almonds, pre-heat your oven to 375F. Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes, stirring halfway through. Allow almonds to cool for at least 5 minutes before processing.
Place the almonds in a food processor. Secure the lid and allow to process for 5 minutes. You will begin to see the almonds turn into a crumbly dry crumb; scrape the sides and continue to process for another 3-5 minutes.
At this point, the almonds should turn into a rough butter which is not fully ready yet. Scrape the sides and process for another 3-5 minutes or until the desired consistency is reached. For creamier almond butter, process longer.
Transfer the almond butter to a mason jar or an airtight container, and store in the fridge or in pantry. The Almond butter will last 1 month in the fridge.
