View Full Version : Need Almond Butter Recipe
02-23-2005, 12:18 AM
I don't really know how to make it. Somewhere I read you just grind up almonds till they make butter. Another recipe was different. There isn't one that I found in Alissa's book, how do YOU make it. I'm open to all kinds of ways, if there are any.
Thanks in advance.

grind almonds in your food processor! That's it! You can add a bit of oil to make it smoother or to speed up the process if you want to.

I just throw a couple of handfuls of raw (unsoaked) almonds in my small food processor (using the s blade), add a small trickle of olive oil and process. After about a minute, I scrape down the sides, and continue processing until the mixture turns creamy. (If you have a larger batch, you may have to scrape down the sides another time).
Takes a little while - but well worth the time. it is yummy.

I have to soak mine or they won't stick together, then use the food processor (too messy in the Vitamix or Chamion). I've noticed that Maranatha brand doesn't add any oils to their raw almond butter so I can only assume that they were soaked.

I do mine in the food processor, but I use the S blade and the top disk that slices and dices to get the almonds in little pieces before they reach the S blade. I use both blades at the same time. The food processor seems to handle them easier them that way. If I want it to be smooth instead of grainy like meal, I add oil.
I tried doing it in my Champion juicer, but it seemed like the juicer wanted to over-heat, and the almond butter got very hot.

I use unsoaked almonds in Green Star juicer with the blank plate. I get almond powder. Then I add some apple juice till it's creamy - it's sweet and good!

Thanks gals! I have a vitamix so I think I will grind them in the coffee grinder first to make sure they are powdery and maybe add some sort of cold press oil. I am not digging the raw olive oil, so it won't be that.
