It blew my mind when I found out that all you need to make any nut butter yourself is a food processor and nuts. I use almonds because I believe them to be a better choice than say, peanuts. Store-bought almond butter is really good too, but the only one that I can find here is made with roasted almonds (which kills nutrients), and is about four times as expensive as making your own. Nothing really needs to be added, but I usually add salt, cinnamon, and some coconut oil.
1 batch, then, looks something like this:
3 dl (~1.5 cups) almonds
-> process until coarse meal, add some salt
-> process until paste (you’ll have to stop intermittently to push down the paste from the sides), add cinnamon/cacao to taste, and 1-2 tbsp coconut oil depending on how soft you like it
DONE! Takes about 15 minutes.
May the Raw Force be with you.
