Hey everyone,

I’ve started doing more research into nutrition and way I can start making my baking more healthy. One thing I love to use are nut butters so the first one I’m going to show you How to make raw healthy homemade Almond butter.

Here is a few very good reasons why you need to make some Almond butter asap peeps:

  • Among nuts, almonds are the most nutritionally dense. This means that for every calorie you consume, you get more vitamins and minerals than from any other nut. Move over, peanut butter!
  • One tablespoon contains as much protein as you get from the same quantity of meat. It’s also an excellent source of fibre, which helps digestion and nourishes tissues.
  • Just one teaspoon contains more than 25% of your daily requirement of Vitamin E, which protects you from oxidative damage and is great for hair, skin and nails.
  • It’s full of omega 3 fatty acids, essential for maintaining metabolic and heart health. It also maintains blood sugar, thereby reducing your risk of getting diabetes and almonds are known to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) and control blood pressure.

So now you wanna know how to make this shizzle right??? It’s really easy…

  • Roast 1-3cups of raw almonds (organic is possible) for 15-20mins – you will begin to smell that gorgeous rich comforting smell
  • Transfer your roasted almonds to your blender
  • You will need a spatula and your patience for this bit – Blend for 1-2 mins scrap down the sides and get the larger chunks out of the corners if they are stuck. Repeat for approx 10-15mins until you have a smooth butter
