DIY: Almond Butter

I found out a little secret a few days don't have to have any spectacular tools or involved process to make nut butters. Considering I could easily survive off of peanut butter alone, this is good news! I generally don't buy almond butter at the store, because it's so much more expensive than PB. Almonds, however, have half the amount of saturated fat, more fiber, and the same amount of sugar as peanuts.

Here's the plan to make your own almond butter, for half the price!

In a food processor or blender, grind 2 cups DRY ROASTED almonds w/ about 1 tbsp of oil. I used olive oil, for health benefits, but you can use whatever you have on hand. Blend blend blend until smooth, then enjoy! Easy, no? Enjoy!

  1. Nice!!! My mom used to always do the grind-your-own almond butter you can get at Whole Foods. I'm starting to see those in Krogers in ritzy places like Belle Meade, too. I want to be healthy but I'm just a peanut butter girl. There is nothing like a little PB!!!!!!!!!!! mmmm. I should try doing this!
