Almond butter

What can you do with a bag of almonds? Make almond butter of course! If you’ve never had almond butter you have to give it a try! Almond butter is so healthy and delicious. It contains protein, healthy oils, selenium, calcium and other minerals and vitamins. It’s easier to make than you think and is worth the effort. Roasting the almonds makes them more yang which is healthier and warm, roasted almonds blend quicker than raw ones. You can make almond butter in a high speed blender as well. You can add extra flavours such as a vanilla bean and cinnamon if desired. I love to eat almond butter with my amaranth pancakes. You can also use 2 cups of almonds for a smaller amount.


  • 3 cups almonds
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C or 350F.
  2. Place almonds in a single layer on a baking tray lined with paper. Roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes, moving the nuts around a couple of times during the process. Be careful not to let them burn.
  3. Place the almonds in a large food processor and process for 10-15 minutes until creamy, scraping down the sides every now and then. (You may need to give your food processor a break if it starts to get too hot.)
  4. Pour into a glass container and store in the fridge.
