About this recipe
I like to make my own almond butter, because it is almost raw and has no added sugar. A lot of store brand almond butters use well-toasted almond, which causes oxidation and rancidity, and may have added sugar or preservatives. This version is cleaner and easy to make, besides it contains plenty of healthy fats from the coconut oil.
Ingredients:
Instructions:
1. Prepare the ingredients.

2. Put almonds in a food processor or a high-speed blender and process until almonds mixture starts sticking together. This may take a few minutes. 

 

3. Add salt and coconut oil and process until smooth. Start with a small amount of coconut oil (1-3 Tbsp.) and add as needed, one tablespoon at a time. Oil is used to achieve a smooth, butter-like consistency, and the amount of it will depend on how powerful your food processor or blender is.

 

4. Transfer to a jar or container and store at room temperature or in the fridge.

Notes:
If you use too much oil, it may collect on the top of butter during storage. if that happens, stir the almond butter really well to incorporate.
Equipment needed:
Serving suggestion:
Great with vegan crackers (I love Organic Mary's Gone Crackers) and honey, on gluten-free toast or in baking.
