A friend is addicted to almond butter, but his wallet is shocked by the price on the supermarket shelf. I told him I'd hunt for a recipe and make him some. I made a triple batch of this. 'Overjoyed' barely begins to describe how happy he is. He loves it and is even considering buying his own food processor. Thanks for posting.
Beautifully simple, and delicious to boot! I toasted my almonds and used about 1 tsp. more of the vegetable oil, to create a spreadable product. I may have sprinkled in a teeny extra bit of salt, also. I will have to try it in the recipes you suggest, but today, a bagel was my 'base' of choice! Thank you so much for sharing, Sharon.
Great recipe! I used almond oil and only slightly toasted the almonds, and it turned out just as I wanted! This is so easy to make and saves a LOT of money. Thanks fo much for posting this keeper.
Made in memory of Sharon's husband Jim during the Cook-A-Thon for Sharon October 2010.
A very nice almond butter recipe! The texture is so creamy and perfect for spreading on a slice of bread or eating it plain from the spoon. :) Next time I think I will skip the salt or just add a pinch, though as I felt it came through quite dominantly. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Sharon! Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #24 July 2010.
This is an easy way to save money! It will definitely become a staple at my house. I made as directed except that I doubled the recipe, ended up adding some more almonds because I thought the amount of oil was a little too much, and added a tiny drizzle of honey. I used some of this to make: Almond Hummus, which came out creamy and delicious! Made for Veg*an Swap, March 2010.
This is SUPER yummy! Thanks for the easy recipe! Made this in my food processor - I wouldn't think it would work too well in a blender.
A little bland..but I'm thinking if you spread this on toast with some jam, or even adding in a bit of sweetener like honey, would really up the taste of this butter. Much cheaper than the store bought too IMA. :-) Made for TYM tag~
This is so easy and taste so good. I think it's even yummier than the almond butter I buy. And less expensive. It was liquid a lot but in the fridge it's harder. I only had vegetable oil but I guess with almond butter it's even better. I'll have to try with almond butter next time. Thanks Sharon :) Made for Newest zaar tag
Made this for Tag, but it didn't work very well in my blender (even though it's a Bosch). I think it works better in a food processor. It was hard to blend and is still not of a p.b. consistency. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
