Made with only two ingredients, this almond butter is super easy to make! Additionally, this almond butter has a perfectly creamy texture and nutty flavor.
Although this almond butter only requires two ingredients and is very quick to make, there are some things to consider before making it. I’ve listed down some notes that will hopefully maximize the ease, flavor, and quality of your almond butter!
- Roasting the Almonds: The longer you roast the almonds, the more flavor your almond butter will have. I like roasting my almonds for 20-25 minutes because it’s the perfect amount of time to give the almonds a smoky and nutty flavor.
- Blending the Almonds: Make sure that you wait for your almonds to completely cool before blending. There were several instances where my blender overheated and the motor stopped because the almonds I put in were too hot. I also recommend using a food processor to grind the almonds if you have one because the blending process might be easier/quicker than using a blender.
- Storing the Almond Butter: Store the almond butter in an airtight sealed container. If you plan on using the almond butter up in a few weeks, you don’t have to refrigerate it. However, I recommend refrigerating the almond butter if you plan on keeping it for a long period of time.
This recipe has only two ingredients so you really can’t substitute any of the ingredients or else your almond butter will not turn out right! However, if you don’t have any salt or just want to omit it from the recipe, the almond butter will still have the same texture and taste. But, I highly recommend adding the salt because although 1/4 tsp sounds like a small amount, it really helps elevate the roasted almond flavor!
