(1 Tbsp per serving)
3 cups (414 g)raw almonds
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Place the almonds onto a baking tray, and toast in the oven for 7 - 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until lightly golden. Note, the almonds will continue to "bake" even when removed from the oven, so be careful not to overcook.
- Add the toasted almonds to a high-powered food processor* (ideally 600W or higher) and blend on high for 5 - 7 minutes, scraping down as needed, until the almonds are a smooth and runny nut butter**. Stopping too soon may mean the nut butter will be a thicker consistency, so keep blending if you'd like it to be more smooth. Enjoy!
- * Using a blender for this is not advised, as there is not enough liquid. A food processor is better suited for a dryer mixture, such as this.
- ** The mixture will go from crumbly to smooth over this time. During this time, you may even notice the mixture form into a sticky ball hitting the sides of the food processor, and this is normal. If you continue for another few minutes you'll see it turn into smooth and creamy nut butter. The longer you can blend it, the smoother it'll get. If your food processor isn't very powerful, you may need to blend it for an extra 5 minutes to achieve the desired consistency or consider adding a bit of vegetable oil or coconut oil to help the process along. If you notice the mixture heat up too much, let it rest to cool slightly so as to not damage your food processor.
- Variations: while blending, add a bit of maple syrup to sweeten if desired, a little sprinkle of salt, or try adding a small spoonful of cacao powder or coconut flakes.
- Store in a mason jar in the fridge for up to one month.
