slather it on.

I am sure you have seen numerous posts about homemade almond butter if you are a food blog reader, like me. For those of you that are not... you might be surprised to know that you can make your very own almond butter that will cost you A LOT less than $6 a jar. Plus... you can take the credit for it, take pride in enjoying it, and ensure that it is healthy and fresh.

Best part is: 2 ingredients & 2 steps

raw almonds
sea salt

1. preheat oven to 300 degrees F, put almonds on sheet pan, roast for 20-25 min
(test doneness by biting an almond in half and if inner flesh is lightly browned/ tan in color take them out of oven)
2. put almonds in food processor, process until butter-ized (takes a good 15 min of 30 second pulses). Add salt.

And if you love all types of nuts as much as I do, I suggest you read Sarah's, of My New Roots, post about nuts. She tells you all you need to know so you can navigate the nut isle.

Who knew most nuts labeled "roasted" have essentially been deep-fried!?? no thanks.

Have a lovely weekend :)
