Why I like this – We all love peanut butter, but it’s always good to try a different flavour. Homemade almond butter can be used in cooking or spread on sarnies – either way it’s delicious!

Preparation time – 5 minutes

Cooking time – none (unless you are roasting your own almonds)

Ingredients

– 1 cup roasted, unsalted almonds
– ½-1 tsp brown sugar
– 1 teaspoon walnut oil
– Pinch sea salt (to taste)

Method

1. Place the almonds into a food processor and process for approximately 1 minute.
2. Add the walnut oil and brown sugar and process for a further 2 minutes, until the mixture is creamy and smooth.
3. Add the sea salt and process for 1 minute.
4. Pour and scrape all of the contents into a jar (or another container with a lid).

Top tip

Almond butter should keep for around 2 weeks if refrigerated.

To make an alternative almond butter, try using raw almonds. They take longer to process than roasted almonds but make a scrumptious nut butter that you won’t find in the shops.

Another option is to dry-roast your own almonds. Spread raw almonds thinly on a flat baking tray and roast in an oven at 180C for 10-12 minutes.
