Homemade Almond Butter Recipe

I’ve finally gotten my kids to not only eat almond butter, but to love it too with this completely irresistible Honey Roasted Almond Butter recipe! This is hands down the best almond butter I’ve ever tasted, and I’ve had my fair share of almond butters.

It’s perfectly smooth and creamy with the perfect hit of honey roasted flavor to it. It makes the perfect dip for apples or a great spread for toast. It’s so good you’ll likely just find yourself eating it straight from the jar, and it’s a snack you can feel great about!

If you haven’t tried making almond butter at home, there’s no better time than now. It’s so easy to make and it’s nice knowing exactly what goes into it when you make it at home, plus you don’t have to worry about that Salmonella scare from the store-bought stuff if you make your own.

The processing time will vary (as mentioned in the recipe) just based off which brand/model of food processor you are using. I have a Magimix and I couldn’t love it more, it had this done it 8 minutes! Any food processor should work, but some will take longer than others.

Do I Need to Roast Almonds First?

I like to roast the almonds with honey first, but this step is optional. It can be made with raw almonds and even without honey.

Can I Use a Coconut Oil Substitute?

If you don’t have coconut oil, regular olive oil (not extra virgin) or canola oil should work just as well.

How Long Does Almond Butter Last?

If stored in the fridge, homemade almond butter should last for around three weeks, if not longer.

Tips for the Best Almond Butter

  • Make sure you’re buying raw almonds for this recipe and not the pre-roasted and salted kind.
  • I store my almond butter in the fridge to prevent separation and extend its shelf life.
  • Make sure to stop and scrape down the sides of the food processor as you’re making the almond butter.

  • Michelle: I’m making this now, but it’s not getting creamy. It’s paste-like right now. I’ve been pulsing it for at least a half hour, probably more. It’s a Black and Decker food processor. Do you know why it’s not turning creamy? July 31, 2016 at 9:03pm Reply
