Homemade Almond Butter is totally awesome, a tantalising treat with a very unique flavour and interesting mouth-feel! Actually, it is something that must be experienced and not described! When you think almonds, you expect a nutty flavour, but this Homemade Almond Butter gives you a better flavour than you bargain for, because the nuts are roasted before blending. A dash of coconut oil further improves the flavour of this butter, apart from boosting its health benefits.

Almond butter is a great source of Protein, while coconut gives you healthy fatty acids of medium chain triglycerides. It is always better to make your almond butter at home as store-bought almond butter contains loads of sugar and hydrogenated vegetable fats, which are not good for you. And to think you get all this goodness at probably half the price of the unhealthy market butter! You don’t need to buy big, expensive almonds to make butter, as you are anyway going to blend it.

The only thing is that you need a bit of patience, as you have to blend the almonds gradually, switching off the knob after every half a minute. Otherwise, your mixer might heat up. Store your almond butter in a glass jar with a lid and it should stay good for 25 days in the fridge. You can also store the almond butter in a jar at room temperature and it stays good for 15 days. But note that if you put the butter in the fridge, then you must store it there always. When you are hungry, treat yourself to 1 tbsp of almond butter. It is a wise snack even for weight-watchers as it has the correct fats to keep you full for a longer time.


Other good dips and snacks to have are Homemade Peanut Butter , Creamy Thick Curd Dip Using Jalapenos, Olives and Sun-dried Tomatoes , Hummus .

can ghee be added instead of oil?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Jainy: We have not tried with ghee. Try and let us know. Nutritionally ghee is very healthy so it should work but your butter may get very thick. What you want to avoid is any usage of vegetable oil. This recipe works out great as we make it weekly at home. Look forward to hearing from you. Even usage of olive oil is fine. Happy cooking.
