- 3 cups of almonds (extra if you like it crunchy)
You can use raw, activated or roasted almonds. Raw almonds take a little longer, and freshly roasted almonds break down into nut butter faster, if added to the food processor while still warm. (You can dry-roast your own almonds for 10-12 minutes at 175c). If you use activated nuts and do them yourself, you’ll need to roast them to make sure they loose any gained moisture, or you’ll have a very wet butter.
ll the almonds in a food processor. Whizz up for a long time, when you think its been a while, you’ll realise its still not been long enough. It will probably take 20-30minutes, you’ll need to stop every now and then, to push the nuts down.
