Vegan Gluten-free Almond butter made at home.

 

My point is why waste Rs 500 on a tiny box of vegan butter when you can make much better stuff at home?

Prep Time: 10 mins (when you roast the almonds)

Cook Time: 12-15 mins (depending on your food processor)

 

What you need?

You need a food processor for this recipe or a very good high powered blender.

 

Ingredients:

Almonds: 1 1/2 cups

Sea salt: 1/2 tsp (sea salt works better than the regular table salt)

 

Additional/ optional ingredients to enhance the flavour further:

  1. Maple syrup for vegans / honey for non vegans: 1 tbsp

OR

2. Cinnamon powder: 1/2 tsp

 

Method:

  1. Roast the almonds in the oven for 10 mins @180C.
  2. Let them cool down.
  3. Put them in a food processor and start the processor.
  4. Grind them for 3-4 minutes. The almonds will break down and become crumbly. Add the salt. 
  5. Grind further, till you see the almonds break down further.
  6. It will start sticking to the bottom of the processor.
  7. Then it will start forming a lump. 
  8. The lump will become bigger and some sticky at this point. 
  9. The almonds will become pasty and some of it will start sticking to the bottom of the blender jar. Keep scraping the sides and the bottom of the blender.
  10. After some more blending you would see the almond paste is become glossy.
  11. The glossy texture is what you want- this means the almonds have started to release oil. 
  12. Blend for some more time till you see a very fine paste.
  13. The butter is almost done.
  14. Remove from the blender jar and store it in a jar.
  15. After making the basic butter i usually add some other ingredients like here i added some maple syrup. Sometimes i add a bit of melted chocolate or cinnamon or coffee power. The list is endless.

PLZ NOTE: while blending, give the blender 5 sec breaks else your machine will get too hot.
