Almond butter may be close to the best thing on the planet. If you like peanut butter this is definitely something you have to try out. Almond butter is great to have on top of smoothies or oat porridge, and also tastes really great as a snack, together with banana or dates.
Almonds are a great source of proteins and healthy fats. They contain a lot of energy, but the good type of energy. In addition, almonds are high in vitamin E, which is really great for your skin. Making almond butter at home is not only a lot cheaper than buying it in the store, but this way you won’t get all that extra salt, sugars or additives in your almond butter.
Nut butters can be made from any type of nut really, all you need is a food processor or a really strong blender.
- About 200-300 grams almonds
- 1 tbs olive oil
- one pinch salt
First turn on your oven to 200 degrees celcius. Place the almonds on a baking sheet and place them in the oven for about 10 minutes. Watch the process carefully the last couple of minutes, as they can burn easily. Let the almonds cool of before placing them in your blender and turning it on. This part requires a bit of patience, and depending on the strength of your blender it will take about 4-7 minutes before the paste get’s creamier. Add the oil and the salt, and blend until you get the consistency you want.
