How to Make It
Place almonds, salt, and honey (if using) into a blender. Starting on lowest speed, blend mixture until coarsely chopped, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Increase speed and blend about 1 to 2 minutes more until a smooth paste forms, scraping down sides as needed. If you prefer a smoother, runnier almond butter, blend for an additional 1 to 2 minutes on high.
Using a spatula, scoop almond butter into an airtight plastic container and keep refrigerated.
Find dry-roasted, unsalted almonds at Trader Joe’s in perfectly-portioned 16-ounce bags. This variety contains no added salt or oils, both of which can add small amounts of sodium, calories, and fat.
