Prep Time12 mins
Total Time12 mins
Use a powerful blender such as a Vitamix or another blender which is powerful enough to make the perfect butter of any kind! Alternatively, you can use a food processor.
Add half of the oil (2 teaspoons) to the blender or food processor. Then add the almonds followed by the optional ingredients. If you are adding vanilla extract, please use 1 teaspoon.
Process or pulse on a low speed for a minute and then increase it to high for one minute. Add the remaining oil and any additional as needed and continue to pulse or process until a paste forms. You will most likely need to stop to scrape down the sides of the container during this process. Also, to make a smoother butter simply allow it to process or pulse longer. Store your almond butter in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
As mentioned, using unsalted and roasted almonds is recommended for this recipe. Use these almonds to avoid making your butter unnecessarily salty.
Also mentioned, using a neutral oil will prevent the oil from adding additional flavors (which may be unwanted) to your almond butter.
Neutral oils include canola oil, safflower oil, and many vegetable oils.
