Recipe Expert Tips

  • Grinding the nuts: If needed to help speed the process add 1 teaspoon of a light oil to the blender when adding the warm nuts.
  • I used a 16 oz. bag of Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds
  • I wanted smooth almond butter so I processed the nuts for a total of 20 minutes from start to finish.
  • The secret to making homemade almond butter or any homemade nut butter is heat and a strong food processor.
  • Roasting the nuts in the oven for a short period of time allows the natural oils to be released and is what helps your food processor turn the dry nuts into a healthy homemade nut butter.
  • Lining the cookie sheet with parchment paper helps with clean up.
  • Store the homemade almond butter in a glass jar or plastic container with an air tight lid in the refrigerator.
