Have you ever made nut butter at home? If not, what are you waiting for? It is so easy and much cheaper than buying at the store. I make homemade peanut butter and almond butter all of the time. I like to try new variations of my favorite nut butters, so when I saw Erin’s (Naturally Ella) recipe for Sea Salt and Honey Almond Butter I knew I was in for a special treat. I had everything in my pantry so I busted out my food processor and got started.

To make it you will need: almonds, honey, and sea salt. Yes, there are only three ingredients involved in making this delicious almond butter. Big time bonus, huh?

Place the almonds in the food processor.

The almonds will go through different stages. Keep the food processor going until the almonds release their oils.

The almonds will start to ball up right before it is ready.

Then the almonds will turn into a smooth and creamy butter. When you get to this stage, you are good to go.

Turn off the food processor and scrape the almond butter into a large jar.

Homemade nut butter in under ten minutes, with only three ingredients—you’ve got to get in on this! It’s so easy and so good! I am in love with the sweet and salty combo. I could eat it straight from the jar, but I try to control myself. I love to eat it on apple slices, toast, or crackers. It is great for breakfast or a healthy snack. 

Thanks Erin for sharing your Sea Salt and Honey Almond Butter recipe. My jar is already half empty and it’s only been a few days. I guess I will be whipping up another batch soon. For other delicious and healthy recipes, visit Erin’s beautiful blog, Naturally Ella

Description

Homemade almond butter that beats out store bought any day!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Dry Roasted Almonds
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey

Preparation Instructions

Place almonds in a food processor and turn on. Almonds will go through different stages but you will want to let your food processor run until the oil has released and almond butter has smoothed out (it will ball up right before this happens). Turn off food processor and transfer to a mason jar.

Stir in salt and honey; taste. Adjust sweet/salty combination to your liking. Cover with an airtight lid and keep in the refrigerator.

I just made this today.
Worked out beautifully!
It took about 13 minutes in my Cuisinart custom prep II.

Hopefully, I’ll behave myself and not eat it all before nightfall……sigh!

I used whole natural almonds – only because I didn’t read through all the comments. Just wanted to mention this took a long time – almost 15 minutes! I was getting a little worried but in the end everything worked out fine.

I made this yesterday and it’s delicious! I used raw almonds simply because I had overlooked that they should be roasted before! It took forever. At least ten minutes until doughy and then five more minutes after that until liquidy. But I kept scraping and the food processor going and it worked! Super yummy. So much cheaper than store bought. Love it! Thanks for the recipe!

I make macadamia butter using this method. Oh so good. Will have to try making it with almonds. Thanks for the idea.

Kim on 5.3.2012

I tried it and it didn’t work for me. But my almonds were raw. I let the food processor run for like 5 minutes too. LOL!
