Easy almond butter recipe, yes! This is the kind of nut butter recipe that you shouldn’t restrict yourself from eating often. The truth is that all nut butters are healthy and full of healthy fat. However, I have a special bonding with this one because of all the tremendous almond butter benefits. Here is my version of almond butter recipe.

What Is Almond Butter?

Nut butter made with almonds is known as Almond butter. There are many variations when you choose to add some flavors, spices or just a dash of salt.

I always stock my pantry with these two nut butters proudly. While I love peanut butter way too much, Mr. Husband has a minor peanut allergy. That’s why almond butter for him. I love almonds not just because of its tremendous health benefits but for its rustic nutty taste and its versatility in cooking. I use almond flour in baking and cooking, and while making some Indian desserts too. I drink almond milk every single day. And I use almond butter in baking, in dressings, shakes and even in cooking.

How to make almond butter

Nutty, yummy goodness packed in a jar – super simple and so easy to make – this is my version of the Easy Almond Butter and all you need is a good blender, grinder or a food processor and some almonds. And, add some flavors using any of the following options.

  • Love cinnamon? Add it to your almond butter.
  • Make your almond butter a smoky taste with smoked paprika and sea salt.
  • Or, just use smoked almonds for making the almond butter.
  • Chocoholics like me shouldn’t shy away from adding a serving of raw cocoa to the almond butter.

There are hundreds of variations that you can make to your homemade almond butter. Now if you are ready to make some almond butter, which I think you should, read this step by step guide.

How to Make Almond Butter Recipe:

For the perfect almond butter recipe, start with the first step that is choosing the best quality almonds. I strongly suggest choosing the finest quality almonds for this almond butter recipe. 

Tips for choosing the best almonds:

  • Choose whole almonds for this recipe.
  • Check for rancidity by cutting one almond and checking if it is yellow.
  • Aged almonds often turn yellowish inside with a rancid odor. Fresh and young almonds are white inside and appear less shrunk outside too.
  • If you buy almonds in bulk and don’t want to make butter out of the entire batch, then store the almonds in sealed bag in a cool and dark place or in refrigerator.
  • The almond butter can be easily stored for a year in refrigerator. However, if you are adding any flavoring agent that contains liquid, consume the almond butter in three months.

Step 1: Roast Almonds

How to make almond butter


  • We all know that almonds have oil in them. When warm, these nuts easily release oil.
  • In a baking sheet, layer almonds and place them in oven for about 5-7 minutes. Keep the oven temperature at 250F.
  • Touch the almonds to see if they are warm. Remove from baking sheet and proceed with the next step.

Step 2: Process or Blend Almonds

  • In a food processor or high-speed blender, add these almonds and process at a medium to high speed.(if your processor has a pulse function, use it at this step)
  • Scrape the edges and stir and continue with the process.
  • The almonds will first turn to a coarse meal, then to a fine meal.
  • Then the mixture will look lumpy as almonds start to release oil.
  • Process for few more minutes until the mixture looks creamy.
  • Stir well and scrape down the sides, and process again.

  • This time at high speed for few minutes and continuously.
  • Check if the mixture looks smooth, creamy and shiny with the oil released. You don’t have to wait for the oil separation.
  • Add flavoring agents and process again for a few minutes.
  • Your simple almond butter is ready!


Step 3: Store Almond Butter

Is there a need to roast the almond to get the nice aroma first before blending

Sophie June 9, 2017 - 8:12 pm

Roasting almonds is optional. But that does give a toasted aroma. If you want to roast these before blending, leave in the oven at 200-250 for 10 minutes. Remember not to overroast it, or the butter will have a slight bitter taste!
