Homemade Almond Butter

I know that almonds are like theeeee staple skinny girl snack. They’re full of proteins and healthy fats (or something?) so they keep you satiated. I think raw almonds are disgusting. If I’m really trying to be good and have some almonds for a snack, I more or less chew twice and swallow what is essentially a mouthful of pebbles. Usually, I’m not trying to be really good, so instead of having almonds, I put a ton of almond or peanut butter on toast… and then add some marshmallow fluff… (it’s on wheat bread so it’s still healthy…)

Anyway, I’ve been trying to find a good brand of natural nut butters, so I just decided to make it myself. I basically used this recipe, except I added sea salt and agave nectar. Just a note: when you first process the nuts they turn to a powder, but don’t freak out when it looks like you’re about to have a liter of almond butter on your hands. Be patient. Keep processing, and when it starts sticking together, you are back to having a normal human sized portion of almond butter.

It’s pretty easy to make- I think I’m going to make homemade Nutella next.
