Amalou (Almond Honey Butter)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by threeovens

This is a Morroccan recipe for homemade almond butter. Making it yourself lets you control the sodium and oil content. Store in an airtight container for use in place of peanut butter for a change of pace.

Very fresh tasting and yummy. I don't know exactly how much walnut oil I used as I just added it to the blending almonds in a thin stream until I got a consistency that I like (I would think that it was under 4 oz's though). Very easy and so much more affordable that the store bought jars. I taste tasted it on a shortbread cookie, and now I'm thinking that I just might sandwich the remaining cookies with some almond butter. :D

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces raw almonds
  • 4 ounces walnut oil or 4 ounces peanut oil
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ounces honey


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread almonds onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast about 10 to 15 minutes, until slightly browned, tossing a couple of times for even browning. Let cool to touch.
  2. In a blender, mix or pulse the almonds with the walnut oil and salt. This can take about 10 minutes or so.
  3. Once smooth, spoon in honey and blend for 30 seconds to mix thoroughly.
