  • Preheat oven to 275°F. Place the almonds on a baking sheet and toast for 20-25 minutes, turning halfway through.
  • Transfer the warm almonds from the baking sheet into a food processor fitted with the metal blade along with the salt.
  • Blend until a smooth homogeneous paste forms, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. It could take up to 10 minutes depending on your food processor.


Storage: Store the homemade almond butter in the pantry for up to on month. Or store it in the refrigerator for up to six months. If you prefer warm almond butter and go through it quickly, you can store it in the pantry. For ultimate safety, always refrigerate.
