Homemade Almond Butter
Cook time
Total time
All you need are almonds and a Vitamix (or food processor) to make fresh, homemade almond butter ... easy, inexpensive, and healthy!
Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: Healthy
Serves: 1.5 cups
  • 2-3 cups of whole Almonds
  • Canola Oil (optional)
Preparation Instructions
  1. Preaheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the almonds on a large cookie sheet and roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes. (Once you can smell the almonds, they are probably done.)
  2. Remove from the oven and let the almonds cool completely.
  3. Once the almonds are cool, add them to the Vitamix (or food processor). Gradually increase the speed to a speed between 8 and 10. Use the tamper (large plastic plunger that comes with the Vitamix) to work the almonds around so that they get pushed towards the blades. This will help them turn to butter more quickly and evenly.
  4. After about a minute, the almonds should have turned into a smooth butter. Transfer to a bowl and serve or use for baking. (You can also add flavors to the almonds like cinnamon, honey, or use a coconut oil to make it great for dipping apples, for example.)
