Did you realise that you can make your own raw almond butter?

It honestly had never occurred to me until I stumbled across a recipe for it.

And then I just had to try it for myself.

These days, I don’t know how we’d get by without being able to make our own almond butter.

I love that it’s so simple to make. Honestly, all you really need is raw almonds. That’s it.

Sure, you can throw in a pinch of salt at the end if you like, but it’s really not necessary.

Doesn’t get much simpler than that. Or any more wholesome either!

But the hardest part of this recipe is the courage you need to stick with the processing.

The almonds go through some amazing stages as you process them, and if you’ve never seen it before it’s very easy to freak out and think you’ve ruined your precious raw almond butter.

When you begin, the almonds start by turning into almond meal, which we’ve all seen before.

Nothing surprising there.

But that’s when it starts to get interesting.

The next stage is the almond meal turning into almond “rubble” as I call it.

The meal starts to get a little oily, and begins to clump together, creating little almond balls.

And then as it progresses, the clumps get bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger.

Until you end up with this…

The first time I saw this I almost freaked out, even though I already knew it was going to happen.

It’s pretty hard to stay your course when you have this massive lump of almond thumping around in your processor.

But this is the key point in the almond-butter-making process, because shortly after, the lump collapses into perfect raw almond butter.

Yay! What a relief.

If you want to add some salt, this is the point to chuck it in and give a quick process to mix it in.

Then it’s ready to be put into jars, and eaten at will.

So good!

I love knowing exactly what goes into my raw almond butter. (And exactly what doesn’t.)

I also love that I can make it 100% raw this way. I’ve noticed that most of the store-bought almond nut butters lightly roast their almonds first, which tastes nice, but isn’t what I’m after.

Think you’re up for the challenge?
