This super-simple alcohol-free recipe just requires a little roasting and churning

February 6, 2022

Almond Butter

Makes 16 ounces


3 cups roasted almonds (you can also purchase raw, but this way you can cut down the cooking time a bit)

Let’s do it!

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Place your roasted almonds on a rimmed baking sheet. We’re going to roast them a bit more to get some of the natural oils to release (which will help make smooth butter).
  3. Bake for about 10 minutes. You’ll start to smell them get reallyyyy roasty. They’re ready when you see them *glistening* with oil.
  4. Cool for about 5 minutes.
  5. Add to your Vitamix or food processor.
  6. Get to churning! Patience is key here. It can take several minutes of tamping the nuts down and scraping the sides of the pitcher to make sure the nuts are really incorporating.
  7. You’ll see it go from a chalky paste, to a chunky mess, to then … wait for it … smooth almond butter! Hold in there.
  8. This is the time to season it if you’d like to add some sass. Cinnamon, maple syrup, coconut flakes, cocoa nibs … have fun with it.
  9. Transfer to an airtight container and let cool. Then, store in your fridge for several weeks.
