Almond butter is expensive…but with this almond butter recipe, you can make your own for half the price.

I love almond butter, but as it has been upwards of $23 a jar lately, I’ve been steering clear of it. Then I realized, why not make my own?

All it takes is a high speed blender (like a Vitamix), and some almonds. Pretty simple, right?

When you make your own almond butter, it ends up being a fraction of the price. (1 pound of organic almonds is about $15, and yields about 2 cups of almond butter, slightly more than a jar). 

Homemade Almond Butter Tips 

  •  You can also make homemade almond butter in a food processor with the S blade. Note, it will take upwards of 10-15 minutes. 
  • You can use raw instead of lightly roasted nuts. They will just take longer to turn into butter than roasted nuts (about 5-6 minutes pared to 1 minute.)
  • Always use organic almonds. Conventional almonds in the US are fumigated with a toxic chemical, propylene oxide (PPO), which is potentially carcinogenic. PPO is banned in Canada, Mexico, and Europe. 

Don’t Want to Make Your Own?

If you don’t have a high-speed blender, you can still save money on almond butter by purchasing it through , an online store that sells healthy foods at wholesale prices. (Plus, existing Thrive Members get a free jar of coconut oil, while new members get a free coconut oil+ 30-day free trial + 15% off first purchase through that link). There, it’s currently about $18, a savings of $6.

  1. Preheat oven to 250F, spread almonds on a baking sheet and cook for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Remove to a bowl or another tray to cool for 5 minutes or so before adding to the vitamix. Blend on high. They will first turn powdery, then creamy. Should take a minute or so. Keep blending until desired creaminess is reached.

  1. I always make it at home because I don’t like the store ones. I add some walnuts into that because it gives it more creaminess. If you like salted one, then you can add a little bit of salt. I never roast them.
