Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Servings: Approximately 1.5-2 cups


  • 3 cups raw, unsalted almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (adjust to taste)
  • Optional:
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1-2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup


  1. Roasting the Almonds: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread almonds on a baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes, stirring halfway.
  2. Blending: Once cooled, add the almonds to a high-speed blender or food processor. Begin blending.
  3. Consistency: First, it’ll look like a coarse meal, then clumpy, and eventually, after 5-10 minutes, it’ll turn into a smooth butter. Scrape the sides as needed.
  4. Seasoning: Once smooth, add in the sea salt, and any optional ingredients like cinnamon, vanilla, and honey. Blend again until well-mixed.
  5. Storing: Transfer the almond butter into an airtight container. It can be stored at room temperature for a week or refrigerated for up to a month.
  6. Enjoying: Use as a spread on toast, blend into smoothies, or dip fruits into it!


  • Be patient during blending. The transformation to creamy butter might take some time, but it’ll be worth it.
  • If the almond butter seems too dry or isn’t blending into a creamy consistency, you can add a little bit of oil, like almond or coconut oil, to help it along.
  • Customizing your almond butter is easy. Experiment with other add-ins like cocoa powder, chia seeds, flax seeds, or even other nuts and seeds.
  • Always store in an airtight container to keep it fresh.

Homemade almond butter is not just delicious but also economical and healthier. Enjoy your creation! ๐ŸŒฐ๐Ÿž๐Ÿฅ„๐Ÿฅค
