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.



  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.
