Homemade Almond Butter

I am literally sitting here kicking myself for not trying this sooner.  Do you know how easy it is to make your own nutbutter?  Well its easy if you have a vitamix but I have seen it done in food processors as well.

In three minutes I made fresh, home-made, no preservatives, no added yucky stuff almond butter.   It was so good I licked the spatula, I licked the top of the vitamix, the spoon I used for scooping any that dropped, I even dropped some on purpose.  I had to put the lid on it and clean up otherwise I would have been tempted to eat the whole thing.  Fresh nutbutter is  100% better than the jar kind.  I wouldn’t have believed it unless I tried it.

recipe?  just pour 3 cups dry roasted nuts in your vitamix and turn on.  I added some honey and it already had sea salt on the almonds.      that’s it.

Pros:  Healthier, less processed, can control the sugar and salt content, tastes so much better, is insanely easy, and just makes you feel good about serving something fresh.

Cons:  expensive.  the nuts cost me $8 and only yielded me 16 oz of nutbutter.  no other cons to report at this time.

next time I will do raw and roast myself to avoid them having to process it and to get as healthy as I can and this way I control the salt, the nuts and the whole process except for harvesting the nut.

I can do it!   And if I can do it, you can do it.

      1/2 cup honey. I am trying to get rid of high oxalate foods as well. I did this as a first run but I want to try sunflower seed butter (lower oxalate) next. Still trying to figure out where I can get that many roasted sunflowers to make nutbutter. But I still feel happier knowing its fresh instead of processed.
