Homemade Almond Butter

This homemade almond butter couldn't be easier and beats store-bought by a mile. Roasting the almonds gives it an unbelievably rich and toasted flavor. The amount of honey we specify adds a luscious hint of sweetness, but you can always leave it out or add more depending on your taste.

Ingredients

1 pound (about 4 cups) skin-on raw almonds

Kosher salt 

2 tablespoons honey 

2 to 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the almonds on a rimmed baking sheet and bake, shaking the pan halfway through, until golden and fragrant, about 8 minutes. Transfer the almonds to a food processor and add 1/2 teaspoon salt, then process until it is a smooth paste, about 5 minutes. Add the honey and continue to process until combined. With the machine still running, slowly drizzle in 2 tablespoons oil. Thin if desired with the remaining tablespoon oil.
