Homemade Almond Butter Recipe

I love delicious toppings, don't you? Sometimes they're the best part of the meal. Think about it, how many times have you been eating a delicious dessert or amazing dish, only to find yourself asking "What's on top of this?" Yes, toppings may sometimes be the best part of some of our favorite foods.

One of those amazing toppings would have to be nut butters. Did you know that you can use our amazing, Natural Almond Flour to create creamy, delicious Almond Butter? It's super healthy, completely gluten-free requires only a few essential ingredients, and can be made in a matter of minutes! Believe me, once you taste this delicious, spreadable butter, you'll wonder why you ever used regular peanut butter before. Grab your BOSCH Food Processor, it's time to make Homemade Almond Butter!

2 1/2 cups Honeyville Natural Almond Flour
1 tsp Honey
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Coconut Oil

For this delicious recipe, you'll need a BOSCH Food Processor attachment.

In your processor, add almond flour and coconut oil. process for 5-10 minutes, scraping down the sides every now and then until you get a creamy, yet still thick texture.

Add honey and vanilla and process for an additional 2-4 minutes until ingredients are fully combined. You may want to add another Tbsp of coconut oil at this point. Remember, the more oil you add, the creamier the texture becomes.

Place in a mason jar or other resealable container and serve.

This butter has a rich, robust taste and texture. The coconut oil gives it the perfect hint of tropical taste, without completely overpowering the smooth almond taste. If you like your butter with just a hint of salt, add a dash of sea salt when you add the honey. Spread this delectable topping on any bread, sandwich, cracker, or snack that you typically use traditional peanut butter on.

It's time for a new favorite topping, and this homemade almond butter may be just that!

Can you use the blanched almond flour?

Hi Kjl. We didn't try it with the blanched, but it's definitely worth testing out. Keep in mind the texture may change a bit.

Hello! I just made a 1/2 batch w/ the blanched almond flour- it is super smooth and delicious! Do I need to store it in the refrigerator?

Awesome! So glad you love it! Yes we recommend storing it in a resealable container in the refrigerator.

I assume you use the solid coconut oil...not the liquid?
Is that right? Sound terrific...anxious to try it.

Hi! I warmed our coconut oil up to a liquid before combining it with the other ingredients. It just made it easier to work with that way. Thanks for the question!
