Now You Know How To Make Almond Butter!
If you don't have time to watch the video of Matt making the almond butter above, I'll let you know that making almond butter takes less than one minute to learn. All you have to do is roast your raw nuts and process for 3-5 minutes, adding whatever additions, such as cinnamon or coconut oil, that you want. To be honest, you don't even have to roast the nuts. You can add them straight to the processor and let your food processor do all the work for you. We find, however, that roasting them add an intense, delicious flavor to the final product!
Nut Butter Recipes
It's hard to believe we both have gone over 20 years without making our own nut butters. It is one of the easiest and best bang for your buck recipes we've made. Not only does the flavor enhance ten fold when you are roasting and processing your own nut butter, but you also get to have control of the fat to carb ratio! Homemade nut butters are truly what all dreams are and should be made of, hence the name Dream Butter!
Homemade Almond Butter
Now that you have homemade almond butter in your rotation of foods you can give our homemade peanut butter a try also! Something I'd like to add is that you don't, by any means, have to stick to what we have listed in the ingredients section. You can play around with the ratios of nuts or add in other flavors. I think some cinnamon and maple extract would be my preferred flavor combination. You could even go the pumpkin spice route for the fall season and gift it to friends for the holidays! And, we don't mind if you take full credit for this dreamy homemade almond butter!
