MAKEs 1-½ cups of almond butter

I love to eat almond butter as a snack or just before a workout.  Just cut up some apple, celery or even carrots and dip into your butter. 

You need:

  • 3 cups of almonds 
  • Food processor (Vitamix is too strong)

Add all the almonds into the food processor, using a “S” blade. 

Start the food processor and just know that it will take a very long time for things to happen, about 10-15 minutes, but at about that time oil will start to release from the almonds and it will get little more messy in the mixer. 

After about 20 minutes of consistent processing– right about the time when you think you’re never going to wind up with almond butter– magic will happen.

Now the mixture will be grainy and you are almost there, just a little longer and you have smooth yummy butter. 

If you like it chunky and crunchy, add now a couple more almonds and just pulse the mixture. 

Also if you like it a little salty, add a dash of Himalaya salt. 

For best shelf live, keep in a closed jar and keep refrigerated .
