How is your Monday treating you? Mine started off with a nice run through Union Square and down by the Piers. I absolutely love that run. You'd be surprised how many people are up at my ungodly hour as well (5:00 a.m. to be precise). I probably pass 30-40 runners every morning (both those of whom are running the opposite direction me and those of whom I have mentally declared I'm racing, though they may not know it).
Makes about 2 cups of almond butter
2. Once the almonds are roasted, pour them into the food processor.
3. Grind them until smooth. At first it will look like dust, then it will clump, and finally, it will. turn into a smooth and creamy.
4. Once smooth, pour into a jar and enjoy! I like to store mine in the fridge so that it lasts longer, but you can also let it sit for a while. It should make about 2 cups, and a serving is about 1 tbsp (or if you're like me, a serving may be by the spoonfuls. Everyone is different).
And there you have it! A super simple, super easy, and healthy way to make almond butter! It also ends up being more cost-effective as well, especially when you buy the almonds in bulk. A normal jar of almond butter that most likely has oils, sugar, and salt added to it, will cost between $8-$10. If you buy your almonds in bulk, it can be as cheap at $6 per jar! Not bad at all.
Hope you enjoy, and let me know how you like it! See you guys next time!
Hey there and welcome! I'm a 20-something-year-old running, painting, and eating my way through NYC. Hope to see you along the way!
