Homemade Almond Butter

nutbutter

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!

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.

      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.
      Best,

    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!!
