You love almond butter but ran out of it? Well, guess what? I got the perfect easy 1-ingredient recipe for a homemade almond butter.
I am definitely more the peanut butter type of person. Maybe that's the case because it's cheaper and more widely available? Or maybe not.
Anyway, sometimes I just really want to spread almond butter on my pancakes instead of peanut butter.
So one early (or not so early) morning motivated me decided to make pancakes. And almond butter. And jam. That morning, I discovered a new love for almond butter and all I want is to share this with you.
Here come some nutritional facts first. Almonds are great for your health!
Almonds are said to lower your cholesterol level. You will be less likely to eat unhealthy fats during the day if you start your day with almonds and they are a brain food too. That's not all though. Almonds are awesome for your skin due to the Vitamin E they contain. They are a great source of antioxidants, which means they are an excellent anti-aging agent and can prevent diseases. There are many more health benefits. I will link my sources below.*
However, don't overeat on almonds. Nuts are great and all but of course only in a small amount per day. And here comes the recipe for my homemade almond butter.
Creamy Almond Butter
Perfect with pancakes, porridge, ice cream, to eat it with a spoon (yes, I won't judge!) or whatever else you desire. 1-3 Ingredients , 10 minutes.
Servings: a couple of spoons
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegan
Does it keep? 1 month, Airtight/Glass Container (I ate it all on the same day but the nut butter should keep for a month).
Prep Time: 20-30 min
250g (roasted) almonds
Optional: 2-3 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Optional: a pinch of Himalayan salt
1. Optional: Melt the 2-3 Tbsp coconut oil.
2. Blend the almonds (I took roasted almond flakes) in your food processor/ blender. If you have a strong S-blade blender, then this will work perfectly well. I don't, and that's why I add melted coconut oil. It also makes the butter taste smoother. The coconut oil is optional though and so is the salt. If you blend pure almonds, this might take you around 20 minutes so be prepared for a long session. Blend until it all forms a smooth paste.
4. Voila, enjoy your homemade nut butter.
