How to Make Raw Almond Butter

For larger quantities and for amazingly smooth nut butters, chocolate and coconut butter, you can beat a stone grinder (melanger). But for quick and easy smooth nut butter at home, a really good food processor will do it.

  • 2 cups almonds
  1. Soak the almonds for around 8 to 12 hours, then rinse and dehydrate for a further 12 to 18 hours at 105 degrees F.
  2. Grind in a food processor for 10 minutes, or until a smooth butter is formed. You may need to rest the food processor halfway through, so it doesn’t overheat. A really good food processor will be able to handle the full 10 minutes.
  3. Will keep in the fridge for several weeks.

  1. Thank you for the recipe. Please, it is better to make the nut butter with the processor, or it could be made with the omega juicer 8006? In this case, should I have to add any oil. Thanks again

    • Hey Vicky, I’ve never used that juicer so I’m not sure if it would work. But generally the only method I’ve seen where you don’t need to add oil is using a food processor or stone grinder, so I would go with a food processor, so as not to add unneeded oils and fats.

  2. chef,
    je suis de langue française et je n’ai pas compris quel est le dernier produit que vous avez ajouté dans votre blender après le sel
    merci de m’éclairer
    et merci pour vos recettes

    • Dans Google Translate, il est orthographié lécithine. Ils sont normalement des granules qui peuvent facilement être achetés en ligne. Ils mélangent la graisse et l’eau ensemble, de sorte qu’ils ne se séparent pas.

    • I really do like to because you’re getting rid of the antinutrients by soaking, which makes them healthier to eat and easier to digest.
