Almond Butter


  • 1 cup raw almonds (100 grams)


  1. Place the almonds in a pan and roast on a medium flame for 10 minutes. Then allow them to cool.
  2. Transfer almonds to a blender and blend for 5-7 minutes. Ensure that you only blend for 15-20 seconds at a time, or your blender will overheat.
  3. First, your almonds will convert into a powder. You may feel like they will never turn into butter, but soon the powder will turn into a buttery substance.
  4. Transfer butter into a jar. Can store for 5-7 days.

Tip: If the butter sticks to the side of the blender, scrape it down and blend again.



Making your almond butter using this recipe provides several benefits:

  1. Pure Ingredients: This recipe uses only raw almonds, ensuring that your almond butter is made from a single, natural ingredient without any added preservatives, sugars, or unhealthy oils.
  2. No Added Preservatives or Additives: Homemade almond butter allows you to avoid the preservatives and additives commonly found in many commercial almond butter brands. You have control over the quality of the almonds used.
  3. Freshness: Roasting the almonds just before blending contributes to the freshness of the almond butter. The natural oils released during roasting enhance the flavor and texture of the final product.
  4. Customization: Making almond butter at home lets you customize the flavor and texture to your liking. You can experiment with the roasting time for different flavor profiles or add a touch of salt or sweetener if desired.
  5. Nutrient Retention: Almonds are a nutritious nut, rich in healthy fats, protein, and essential vitamins and minerals. The minimal processing in this recipe helps retain the nutritional benefits of almonds.
  6. Cost-Effective: Making almond butter at home can be cost-effective, especially if you buy almonds in bulk. It can be a more economical option compared to purchasing premium almond butter brands.
  7. No Hydrogenated Oils: Some commercial almond butter may contain hydrogenated oils, which are trans fats. By making your almond butter, you can choose healthier oil options or skip them entirely.
  8. Versatility: Homemade almond butter can be used in various ways—spread on toast, added to smoothies, used as a dip, or incorporated into recipes. It’s a versatile and nutritious addition to your diet.
  9. Control Over Processing Time: Blending the almonds at home allows you to control the processing time. This can result in a smoother or chunkier almond butter, depending on your preference.

Remember to store your homemade almond butter in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for optimal freshness. Enjoy the rich and creamy goodness of almond butter made with minimal ingredients and maximum flavor.
