The most delicious almond butter ever is just a whirl away!
So, why make your own almond butter? I give you this recipe as The Answer.
I couldn’t find almond butter at the store with roasted almonds as an ingredient. So, I bought a bag of almonds and decided to do my own roasting. The recipe I found called for olive oil, but I had just a bit of coconut oil in the bottom of the jar, so I decided to use that instead. Adding a splash of vanilla was my idea because, well, why not?
This is a beautiful flavor combination, I must say. The coconut oil and vanilla add flavor and just a hint of sweetness without any sugar. So, so good. And healthy, too.
This should stay in your fridge for a few weeks, but I really can’t verify that because mine was completely gone after two days. I’m not saying that you should just sit and eat yours with a spoon, though, so yours might last longer. Just sayin.
(NOTE: The coconut oil will make the mixture very solid after it has been in the fridge, so let it sit out awhile to loosen up before spreading.)
