Almond Butter in a Pinch


So on Halloween I chopped myself up an apple and planned on dipping it in almond butter as a light “dinner” before taking the midgets trick or treating. Unfortunately Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard was bare…at least of almond butter. *sad face*

To cheer myself up I decided to try a new recipe. Homemade Almond Butter!! It had always looked super easy, but I had yet to try it.

Here’s what you do:

Throw a handful of almonds in your grinder (I use a coffee grinder)

Almonds in a Grinder

Almonds in a Grinder

Pulse it…pulse it real good…(sorry…)


Within like a minute you will have almond flour!!

Almond Flour!!

Almond Flour!!

So quick! So easy! So NOT $7.00 a bag!

BUT wait, there’s more! Put the lid back on and pulse it some more and soon you have almond butter!! It won’t we quite as creamy as you are used to, but it is delicious…it is so good that the picture ate itself :-/ Since it will not be quite as creamy you will have to stir it a little and press it together, but man is it worth the extra effort!!

I ended up eating the apple plain and then the almond butter with a spoon!  Let me know how your’s turns out!
