Both of Zachary and Leah really like this Almond Butter recipe. This is another simple recipe which can easily be done without much prep time. Using roasted nuts will give the Almond Butter a nutty roasted flavor which is different than the Raw Almond Butter which I've shared previously. Having some kind of nut butter is always good to have around.
Almond Butter Using Roasted Almonds
2 cups roasted nuts
1/2 teaspoon sea salt. (we use less)
2 tbsp coconut oil
4-5 dates (optional)
Place 2 cups of raw almonds on cookie sheet in an oven of 300 F for about 15-20 minutes. You may need to move the almonds around to ensure roasting is even. Let almonds cool before using.
Using the food processor, combine the roasted almonds and salt and process until finely ground. You may also use a blender, a meat grinder or nut butter machine if you prefer.
Other nuts can substituted if desired try, cashews, hazelnuts or macadamia nuts or a combination. This recipe will yield about two cups. Please note that when using coconut oil, when refrigerated, the nut butter will be harder. Coconut oil hardens in cooler temperatures.
