Learn how to make almond butter with just 1 ingredient and a few minutes! The best homemade almond butter—creamy, simple and delicious.
Have you ever tried making homemade almond butter? Years and years ago, I wouldn’t have even dreamed of trying. But then, I started baking a lot, a lot and realized that store-bought almond butter is freaking expensive!
I mean, do you ever really get used to paying for (or gawking at, then turning your shopping cart sharply away from) a 16 oz. jar of almond butter that’s $16.99?!? Like, have you also seen the ones that go for $22.99 and upward?
Like, is there gold in that almond butter? Or am I just paying for the sexy packaging? Lol.
So today, we’re gonna learn how to make almond butter with just 1 ingredient and all the flavor. You ready? Let’s make homemade almond butter!
How to Make Almond Butter
Step 1: add almonds to a food processor
Step 1: Add roasted almonds to the canister of the food processor. Here is the food processor that I use to make homemade almond butter.
Step 2: blend almonds until crumbly
Step 2: Blend the almonds until crumbly. This is how the almonds will look part of the way through making almond butter. The almonds are crumbly and dry.
Step 3: almonds release oil, starts to moisten
Step 3: Keep blending. At this stage, you’ll see that the almonds have begun to release oil—and are thus starting to create a paste. Keep going, you’re on your way to making homemade almond butter! Make sure to scrape down the sides of the processor.
Step 4: almonds turn into a thick dough
Step 4: Here, you’ll start to see that much of the oil from the almonds have infiltrated (so to speak) the almond meal (dry almond bits). They’re starting to combine to make this sticky almond butter “dough.” Keep blending!
Step 5: Coarse, slightly crunchy almond butter
Step 5: You’re almost there. You can see that the almond butter “dough” has turned into a coarse, liquidy almond butter. You can stop here if you like your homemade almond butter with bits of almonds in it. Keep going to make creamy almond butter.
Step 6: homemade almond butter is made!
Step 6: Now your homemade almond butter is ready! Wasn’t that easy? Natural, homemade almond butter isn’t going to be perfectly smooth (I mean, even almond butter manufacturers can’t get it super smooth), but it’ll be yummy and ready to use in recipes!
