Nut butters make a healthy and tasty addition to any breakfast. You can add them in your smoothies, on pan cakes, in loafs, as a toast spread etc. Nut butters are rich in protein and can instantly make any dish protein-rich. The butters that you get in the market are filled with preservatives, unhealthy oils and sweeteners. You can easily make nut butters at home; after peanut butter, here we are with almond butter recipe:
RECIPE FOR HOMEMADE ALMOND BUTTER:
Things you need- 2 cups almonds
In a pan, add almonds and roast it until golden-brown. You may also roast the almonds in a microwave. Put the roasted almonds in a blender or food processor and begin blending. Let it run for a few minutes and keep a check on the texture as you blend. You will first achieve a dry and powdery mixture. While you blend it more, the texture becomes slightly damp yet powdery. As you keep blending, the mixture releases oils and becomes buttery and thick. Blend until smooth and voila! Your almond butter is ready!
You can also add in some sea salt and cinnamon for flavour, but I prefer it plain.
