Almond Butter


420g/15oz roasted almonds (or however many you need - this will make one large jar).
1 tbsp. vanilla extract (optional)


Add the almonds (or other type of nuts) to a food processor with the vanilla extract if using and blitz. Leave until you reach a smooth and creamy consistency. This could take 30 minutes, be patient and keep scraping the mixture from the edges of the food processor.


Making your own almond butter (or any type of nut butter) is super easy. We use almond butter in quite a few of my recipes so we find making my own homemade version quite cost effective as we can make just as much as we need.

The first time we tried to make this we did get a bit impatient and almost wanted to add some water into the food processor in the hope it would reach the desired consistency. Do not do this, the mixture will become too wet, wait it out and keep blitzing. It will take up to 30 minutes but you can just leave the food processor running and get on with other things while it’s working, you may just need to scrape the mixture from the edges of the food processor every so often.

The quickest way to make this recipe is to use roasted nuts (you can roast them yourself first for 10 minutes in the oven) but raw nuts will also work they will just take longer. Don’t be tempted to soak the nuts first, as although this does make it easier to blend, it will make the consistency too runny.

Hope you enjoy.
