    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    cup

    Directions:

    1. 1
      If the almonds have skins, they will need to be blanched and peeled: Place them in a small saucepan and cover them with water; bring to a boil, reduce heat slightly and simmer for two minutes.
    2. 2
      Drain the almondsin a colander and rinse them under cold water. Pop off the skins by pinching the base of each almond between your thumb and forefinger.
    3. 3
      Pat the almonds dry. (These steps are unnessary if you are using skinless almonds).
    4. 4
      Grind the almonds into a meal in a food processor fitted with a metal blade.
    5. 5
      Add the oil one tablespoon at a time and process until creamy.

      I've never made almond butter and really liked the almond blanching directions. Although I wonder if it would have turned out smoother if I hadn't gotten them wet. I tried my blender and a food processor and couldn't get it to regular peanut butter like consistency. I think I might be expecting too much of it? This will probably be good as a sub in PB balls. Thanks.

      Yummy! I didn't have flax seed oil, so used peanut oil and added a tablespoon of ground flax seed to the almonds. Good spread on toast and crackers! Thanks! Made for the Vegetarian Swap.
