Easy Zerowaste Almond Butter Recipe

One of my favourite things in the world to eat is almond butter. I love it on toast, in oatmeal, on its own, or turned into almond milk. But it is expensive to buy. Even at bulk stores, the price is a bit much for me. The only way to fix this is to make my own.

You can use regular old almonds or roasted. The roasted almonds add more flavour (you can roast them yourself or buy them that way), but sometimes I’m just too lazy to bake them.

What you Need:
-Almonds
-a food processor (or high-speed blender)
-a glass jar
-a spatula

Optional Ingredients:
-oil (coconut, vegetable, peanut, sunflower…)
-honey
-cinnamon
-salt

Step One:IMG_6919
-Add your chosen ingredients to the food processor
-I added almonds and a pinch of pink salt
-At this point, you can add a splash of oil to speed up the blending process

 

Step Two:
-blend starting on a low speed and moving to medium/high once started

-it will look like it’s never going to blend, but I promise you it will
-If you want to add any additional ingredients nows the time you can add a spoonful of honey or a dash of cinnamon now

 

Step Three:
-Add to your jar and enjoy!IMG_6917
-I store mine in the fridge for freshness, and it prevents the oils from separating

 

Let me know if you try it!
