Homemade Almond Butter

What to do when Trader Joe’s is out of your favorite almond butter? Make your own! It didn’t take long, there’s not many ingredients and I think it tastes even better than Trader Joe’s.

homemade almond butter

3 cups raw unsalted almonds
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
dash of sea salt

Optional add ins:
1 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of cinnamon

You do need a high powered blender. I tried using my small food processor and it wasn’t strong enough, but when I switched to my Nutribullet blender I had no problems. Using the milling blade, I blended 1 cup of almonds at a time until it was like flour consistency then I added in the oil, sea salt, honey and cinnamon until it was creamy. It took about 25 minutes of blending.

I can’t wait to make different flavors! Here are some I’m thinking of making next:
Cinnamon Raisin
Pumpkin Spice
Maple Pecan
Vanilla Chai
