When you make almond butter at home, you can keep it as basic or as complicated as you like—and skip the unhealthy fillers—in contrast to store-bought nut butters, which frequently include additional sugar, salt, and other oils. Why not attempt to make it yourself instead? 

Delicious almond butter may be produced at home. Nothing is more disheartening than spending heavy bucks on a new brand of almond butter only to discover it is bland and greasy once you get it home. Making your own nut butter ensures that it will never let you down because you can taste it and make adjustments as you go. 

You'll question why no one makes their own almond butter once you learn how to do it. It's that easy! 


2-3 cups of raw almonds, or desired raw nut 

Pinch of salt 

2 tbsp coconut or cane sugar (optional, if making sweet butter) 

1 tsp cinnamon (optional, if making sweet butter)


Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Use silicone mats or parchment paper to line a baking sheet. Bake the nuts on the baking sheet for five minutes. By doing this, the nuts' oils are warmed and given a pleasant aroma. 

Remove the nuts, then put them in the food processor. To blend into nut butter, pulse on low or high. Depending on how long it takes, your food processor can get a little heated. If this happens, just switch it off for a minute or so to prevent overheating. Additionally, you might need to whisk the mixture periodically. Add a bit of sea salt and additional ingredients, if using, once the nuts have liquefied into butter. To integrate, pulse for a further 30 seconds. 

Put in the refrigerator after pouring into a covered jar. Use this nut butter everywhere you would use store-bought! 

You can store almond butter in the freezer for up to six months or in a refrigerator for up to one month. Before using, you might want to whisk the nut butter. 

Flavour Up 

For a delicious spread for your toast in the morning, combine finely chopped raisins (or cranberries, if you don't like raisins). 

For a really fantastic sweet and salty nut butter, add some chocolate shavings and a dash of salt. This is fantastic on waffles and pancakes! 

Although it may sound unusual, almond butter tastes fantastic with a tiny bit of curry spice added!
