Quick and Easy Almond Butter Recipe

Print

Almond butter is such a great staple ingredient to have in your kitchen to use in baking and spread on toast for breakfast. My only issue with it is that although there are some really great brands out there, they aren’t always the cheapest to buy. I had a spare 10 minutes up my sleeve and decided to try making my own. The result was simple and delicious – I knew I had to share it immediately (just on here though, I already ate all the butter). All you need to make this easy almond butter recipe is 10 mins and two ingredients.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Almond butter is a great alternative for those who are allergic or intolerant to peanuts, and it also supplies a plenty of nutrition in every spoonful.

Almonds are a natural source of monounsaturated fats and fiber, both of which help reduce your risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. They are also full of protein, making them a satisfying snack and spread for toast, veggies, or sliced fruits.
