Almond butter

Once upon a time, I was a peanut butter lover but then a time came when I discovered something far more heavenly, almond butter! I have almond butter almost everyday! Since Jamie and I invested in our lovely  food processor I have been making my own and it tastes even better when you make it yourself. It is incredibly easy (only contains two ingredients) and I thought I would show you how to make it today 🙂 Another reason to why I prefer making it myself is that I know exactly what goes in it and I can decide on the amount of salt as well. I think it is really important to be aware of what you put in your body. Obviously, this is not always easy but I try my best.

So first of all, cover a tray with almonds. I have no idea of quantities but about 400 grams maybe? I put our fan oven on 180 degrees and roast them until they get a nice brown colour (don’t forget to stir them a couple of times). This takes about 10 minutes, be very careful not to burn them. I accidentally had them in for a bit too long the last time and the end product did not turn out as nice…

Once this is done, leave them out to cool down a little bit and then throw them in the food processor with a bit of salt. I love Himalayan pink salt, it is so much better for you and the colour just makes it even more fantastic! Once that’s done turn on the food processor and leave it on for at least ten minutes. The nut butter should almost be liquid like when it is finished and there you are, your own almond butter. Very easy and tastes amazing 🙂

P.S. the nut butter can be a bit warm once it is done, so leave it to cool without a lid first.
