Raw almond butter recipe

Prep Time15 min
Total Time15 min
Suggested Servings8 servings
Shelf Life5 days in fridge
- 2 cups almonds
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1. Place the almonds only (do not add the honey or salt) into your food processer.
- 2. Food process your almonds. Keep scraping the sides. At first, the almonds will just be all powdery and you'll think you need to add liquids. But do NOT add any liquids. Just keep processing them and scraping the sides. Seriously, keep processing and scraping the sides for approximately ten minutes. (Yes, that's right, 10 minutes!!) You'll see that your almonds will eventually turn kind of doughy. Keep processing them... They'll turn buttery if you process long enough.
- 3. After approximately ten minutes of food processing (could be a bit longer or a bit less depending on the strength of your food processor), your raw almond butter recipe is basically ready. Please wear ear protection, by the way! This is a long and loud process.
- 4. Once you've got the consistency you like, add the honey and salt and mix by hand.
- 5. Enjoy immediately. Store leftovers in fridge.
The Rawtarian's ThoughtsBy The Rawtarian
Raw almond butter recipes are something of a myth in the raw food world. Why won't they blend well? What's the deal with all these bad raw almond butter recipes?
But I've got a raw almond butter recipe that does the trick.
Make this raw almond butter recipe in your food processor, not your blender, not your VitaMix and not your BlendTec. (Trust me.)
This raw almond butter recipe is simple and delicious. I love it spread on apples or raw crackers. Keep it in the fridge. It tastes best when it is served at room-temperature.
Note: Do NOT soak your almonds in advance. (Use dry, unsalted, unsoaked, unroasted almonds.)
This is a great replacement for peanut butter. And much healthier, too!
WARNING: DO NOT PROCESS FOR LONGER THAN 10 MINUTES TOTAL. IF YOU LET YOUR FOOD PROCESSOR GO FOR LONGER YOU MAY BURN OUT YOUR FOOD PROCESSOR'S ENGINE. BIG THANKS AND APOLOGIES TO S. WHO CALLED TO LET ME KNOW THAT THIS RECIPE KILLED HER BRAND NEW, NEVER USED KITCHENAID FOOD PROCESSOR THAT WAS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY :(
