Almond Butter

Almond butter is easy to make yourself and a lot cheaper too! 

This is just so easy to make as long as you have a food processor.     You can use either blanched almonds or almonds in their skin.   Other nuts such as cashew can be used to make this too.

Almond butter is an essential ingredient one of our favourite chocolate brownies recipes.  It also makes a great fat bomb too!   If you make this yourself, you can be assured that there are no preservatives or sneaky chemicals added too!  All natural, all good, all Divalicious!

 

INGREDIENTS

200g packet of almonds

METHOD

  1. Put the almonds into the food processor and just blitz away.
  2. You will need to keep scraping the almonds off the side during the blending.
  3. The nuts will grind into a fine powder, then start to heat up and make a butter.  It can take about 20 minutes.  Don’t get too scared of the heat, it should not be your motor, but the heat from the nuts.
  4. Put the delicious soft nutty butter into a sealed container and keep in the fridge.

    Okay I just saw this: do we need to add water or something into the food processor with the almonds? I’m sorry if this sounds EXTREMELY stupid but I rarely cook so when I do, I ask stupid questions and drive my Mom [and in this case, you] nuts.

      Lol! No problems Devina….No need to add water..just keep processing the almonds until the heat makes the nuts go into a paste. You will need to scrape down the sides every so often. But it cheaper than buying jars of the stuff.
