It is best to keep almond butter in the fridge. If you purchase nut butters without preservatives or if you like to make your own nut butter.

Smooth Almond Butter

  • Spread 2 cups of almonds on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. Check the almonds in 10 minutes.
  • Add 2 cups of roasted almonds in a food processor and let it run for about 5-10 minutes until desired smoothness.

It takes a few minutes for the almonds to release the oils for a creamy nut-butter.

You will notice a dry, meal-like consistency within a few minutes.

The fibers will eventually break down. so continue to run the food processor until you achieve the smoothness you desire.

Chunky Almond Butter

  • Roughly chop ¼ cup of roasted almonds, use a knife or a food processor. Set aside.
  • Follow the steps above to make a SMOOTH Almond Butter with the remaining almonds.
  • Once you reach a smooth, creamy texture, add the roughly chopped almonds and pulse for 10 seconds.

Recipe for homemade almond butter yields 1 cup. Store in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
