Patience, patience, patience…
The key to making your own nut butter. Trust me, you’re gonna need it!
I had some free time last night, so my little project involved patience, almonds, and a processor. My pantry was in the middle of a crisis. There was knot three jars of nut butter on the shelves!
I don’t normally make my own nut butter because I’m not a very patient person. It’s easier for me to just pick up a jar at the store. However, making your own is a great way to control the quality of ingredients in the finished product. These days, you never know what goes into your food, no matter what they claim on the label. The only way to really know is to…
Make your own!
Homemade Almond Butter
- 2 cups raw almonds
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and spread the almonds in a single layer on top.
- Roast the almonds for 10-15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes or so.
- Blend in a high-powered blender or food processor for 10-15 minutes.
- Just keep processing. It will take awhile, but it just takes time.
