Almond butter is one of my favorite nut butters – almost every morning I eat a crispy english muffin with almond butter and honey. I love the taste of almond butter because it is satisfying, has a sweet taste to it, and is packed with protein, calcium, and so many nutrients.

Can I Make Almond Butter In A Blender?

Absolutely – I use my Vitamix to make nut butters like peanut butter, cashew butter, and almond butter. You can also use any other blender that is high-powdered. If you don’t have a high-power blender you can use a food processor instead.

What To Eat Almond Butter With

You can use almond butter in protein shakes/smoothies, baking recipes, and is great for breakfast dishes like pancakes, toast, and so much more.

Recipes I’ve used almond butter in: 5 Ingredient Flourless Cookies, Chewy Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Healthy Protein Cookies, and Best Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake.

Tips for Making Almond Butter

  • Take your time with nut butters – when blending the almonds it takes time for it to become a creamy consistency. It will first start out as almond flour/meal then will begin to liquify over time and begin to cream.
  • For this recipe to vegan – either remove honey or replace 1 tbsp of honey with coconut sugar.
  • Store almond butter in a sealed glass jar and store in refrigerator to extend shelf life.
