Homemade Almond Butter

by Amie on March 14, 2011

It all started with a bag of almonds.

Then, I ran out of almond butter.

So, I simply whipped out my food processor, cleaned out my old jar of nut butter and created a masterpiece.

Right in my very kitchen.

There’s a first time for everything.

And now, I’m on a Nut Butter kick.

Yum.

A spoonful or two to taste…and it was perfect.

Then, into a clean nut butter jar.

And you’re all set.

Easy as pie.

But simply without the gluten…

Enjoy!

  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp. agave nectar

  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. flax seeds

  2. Transfer to serving dishes. Serve with crudites, gluten-free crackers or on sandwiches. Store in a sealed container in the fridge.

I’m excited to announce that I will be speaking and performing a live cooking demo at the NYC Vegetarian Festival on April the 3rd here in Manhattan. Here is a snapshot of the day’s events including my cooking demo at 4:30PM and speaking panel at 5:00PM.

And, my newest soup creation, Vegan n’ Gluten-Free Soup was featured on Foodista.

Awesome! I never would have though to add tofu to make this–brilliant. I have a cousin who is gluten intolerant–I’ll have to keep this in mind.

Oh wow that dip recipe sounds SO good! I’ve been on a major homemade nut butter kick! It’s cheaper than buying it in the store and it’s so simple and delicious to make!

Thank you so much, Liz; great to hear from you! I agree, I love making homemade nut butters as they are so much cheaper than the store brands and you have complete control over the ingredients and possible cross-contamination.
Have a great day and thank you again.

oops, didn’t see that listed there, I only glanced and saw that you were around. My concert is at 3:00 so I don’t think I can get to it but maybe mom and I can see you before or after it. As always, love the site, so many good lookin’ things on here!

Yummmmm looks great. I see flax in there is that sea salt? and Almonds is that the entire recipe? should I roast the Almonds first. Sorry I am quite new with the clean foods. I cannot find the recipe should I just wing it and see what happens.

Yes, those are flax seeds and sea salt. You can use ground flax seeds to make it easier for you. No apologies; I’m happy to help anytime. Have a great night!!
