Roast (optional): Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place almonds on a lined baking sheet and roast for about 5 minutes. Roasting will allow them to release natural oils a bit better.
Blend: Place almonds in a food processor or blender. Blend for 20 minutes. Don't add any oil, 20 minutes is the magic amount of time for the almonds to release their oils and become smooth, delicious almond butter. Add sea salt to taste and enjoy!
LEFTOVERS/STORAGE: It will keep for a couple weeks (or longer!) in the fridge. Store in a glass mason jar. NUTRITION NOTES: Almonds are loaded with antioxidants, vitamin E, and fiber. They are also high in calories (as with all nuts) so it’s good to keep portion sizes in mind. SERVING SUGGESTIONS: This is great as a substitute for peanut butter. Perfect on toast, in oatmeal, in an almond butter and jam sandwich, on pancakes, or even by the spoonful!
