Homemade almond butter

Jump to Recipe

Sure you can buy almond butter (although that´s not entirely true for everywhere in the world) but it feels great to make your own, and it actually tastes batter than store-bought ones I have tried.

Anyways, given we are currently in Spain, it is a bit harder to find it. They do sell it in some places, but I´d rather make my own now, and I save myself the commute.

This recipe makes for about three small mason jars, but I can assure you it will be gone within days, as it always happens here. Use it on toast, hot cakes, or just eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon.
