I LOVE almond butter. I love it so much I once had to ban it from my cupboard because I would eat a jar in one sitting. By the spoonful! This was my indulgence when I gave up sugar for the first time.
I’m hoping now, that by going through the slightly more onerous task of making it myself, that I can control this yummy love affair.
Almond butter is a healthier alternative to peanut butter. Peanuts are actually a legume and can be quite acidic. Whereas almonds are rich in vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium and are a good source of protein and fiber. They are also known to alkalise the body.
This recipe is really simple and only three ingredients are required:
6. At this stage, add a splash of olive oil and some salt to taste.
7. Blend some more and then keep adding oil and salt until you have your desired consistency. Easy peasy!
You can enjoy this nut butter as a spread on toast, mixed in with yoghurt, as a substitute for any recipe requiring peanut butter or if you are after a quick energy hit, by the spoonful.
