Almond Butter

  • Author: The Healthful Ideas
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 1.5 cup 1x
  • Category: Butter


  • 3 cups almonds
  • pinch sea salt (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 175C (347F).
  2. Spread the almonds on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  3. Roast the nuts for 15-18 minutes until toasted and lightly golden when cut in half. Keep an eye on them so they don't burn.
  4. Cool completely.
  5. Add them into a food processor and process until very smooth for 15-20 minutes. You may have to scrape the sides of the food processor with a spatula 1-2 times. When you think it's done, blend it for a few more minutes to get it extra creamy.
  6. Store in an airtight glass jar in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.


- If you like your almond butter crunchy, pulse the nuts a few time and save 1-2 tbsp of the chopped nuts. When the butter is done, add the saved chopped nuts and process briefly to incorporate.
- The time it takes to make the butter depends on how strong your food processor is. It can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes. When you process it for that long the butter naturally heats up so just make sure it's cooled down before you put it in the fridge.
