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.

homemade Indian style 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!

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.

Tips to make almond butter: 1. Instead of coconut oil you can add olive oil. 2. Cool the almonds completely after roasting otherwise while blending the mixer jar may get hot. 3. Instead of sea salt you can add normal salt.

Hi. I''m a endurance athlete. Almond butter gives excellent slow release of energy , consumed first thing in the morning or anytime in the day when hungry. Drastically reduces sugar craving. -! And super simple to make. Love it.
