All you need is 1 cup of raw (unprocessed) almonds, a high quality food processor, and some patience!
Each picture was taken at 2-3 min increments. I used my Black & Decker 12 C food processor. You’ll need to scrape the sides down with a spatula in the beginning, but that’s it! Process on ‘high’ for 12- 15 mins. It’s really that simple! ‘Yes’ to having homemade raw almond butter in under 15 mins!
You may need to add a little oil if you’re using soaked, dehydrated almonds.
1 cup of almonds = yields about 1/3 C of almond butter
2 tsp Raw Honey (optional – stir in after!)
1/4 tsp sea salt (optional – stir in after!)
After you’ve made the butter you can also add honey and/or salt. But be sure you hand-stir these in after you’ve made the butter, as it will overwhelm the mixture if you try to add it beforehand (the mixture will seize if you try to add it into the food processor).
