Homemade Almond Butter Recipe – Perfect for Christmas Gifting

Homemade almond butter is so easy and oh so delicious! All you need is almonds (yes I wasn’t kidding when I said it’s easy) to create the perfect spread without the nasties and limiting your waste, especially when purchased from The Wholefood Collective where your almonds will come in compostable packaging! Optional ingredients can be added for a hint of sweet or saltiness such as sugar (my pick being coconut sugar), and a pinch of salt flakes. These can be added with the almonds before you begin to blend. For the best results use fresh almonds – not the old ones in the pantry that you are trying to use up, trust me it makes all the difference! Ellen x

    i don’t have a thermomix…. how do I make it?

      Hi Inez,
      If you don’t have a Thermomix you could use a good-quality food processor, or high-speed blender such as a Vitamix. Making your own almond butter requires an appliance with a good quality motor. Alternatively, you could go with a mortar and pestle, but be prepared for a workout!
