ALMOND BUTTER



Hope you all had a lovely weekend! We had a quiet one and enjoying the last weekend with my mum before she goes back home!Why does time fly when mums are around??

Today's recipe is a very easy Almond butter. I was searching for a good and healthy breakfast spread. Peanut butter is something we all eat at home. So I wanted to try it at home without any preservatives. But then I opened the fridge and a bag of almonds were staring back at me. It has actually been sitting there a long time and thought I'd finally put it to use. So that's how those almonds became Almond Butter :)



I'm hoping to make that Peanut Butter very soon........along with some Nutella.........atleast we all know what goes into it.....!! and maybe can reduce the sugar a teeny weeny bit!

The Almond Butter was a huge hit. Perfect consistency............!It can be used as a dip for just about anything. P.S it tastes amazing with apples! You can use it to flavour your smoothies too.............watch out for the next blog post! It stores well in the fridge for about 3-4 weeks. just remember to use a clean spoon each time!



This recipe makes a small jar (seen in the pic)
INGREDIENTS:
Plain almonds - 1 and 1/4 cup
Oil - 4 tsps
Honey - 3 tsps
Salt to taste


PROCESS:

  • In a skillet, dry roast the almonds till slightly toasted. let it cool.
  • In  a blender, pulse the almonds till it becomes like powder.
  • Now add 2 tsps oil and slowly start blending it.
  • Add the rest of the oil and honey at regular intervals. Add the salt too.
  • Keep scraping the sides of the blender and continue blending till you reach the desired consistency.
  • It took me about 20 minutes. take breaks in between if the blender gets too heated up.
