Day 64 – Almond Butter

I often see nut butters mentioned in recipes and I have seen them for sale at the shops… But my question is how hard are they to actually make?

The answer – very simple!

I decided to give Almond Butter again since I had loads of Almonds in the cupboard.

Ingredients:

1 cup raw almonds

1 Tbsp. olive oil

Dash of Himalayan salt

Method:

Place all ingredients into a food processor, and blend.

And blend…

And blend…

And blend…

And blend some more… eventually you will need to start scraping down the sides of the food processor.

I must admit that I use a stick blender that has a food processor attachment – it is only small and not very powerful, but it did make the nut butter, but not before a bit of plastic melting around the rotator!ย  All good though!

So, be warned, depending on your individual processor, the mixture might get a bit warm (as also will the processor).ย  Be persistent though, butter will be created eventually ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy spread on a banana for breaky, or if you eat toast, on some toast!
