“My sis and me made Sharon's wonderful Easy Homemade Almond Butter and liked it so much that we were inspired to come up with our own variations. We created a cocoa vanilla one, a vanilla and a cinnamon one. They are so yummy and taste kinda like candy only healthier. If you have a sweet tooth feel free to add in a ts or so of your favourite sweetener. The basic almond butter is different from Sharons in that is uses a little less oil and salt and a different method of preparation.”
1 small bowl almond butter

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 13 cups almonds (skin on)
  • 116 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil (a neutral one like sunflower or salad)
  • For Vanilla Cocoa Almond Butter
  • 12 teaspoon cocoa powder (unsweetened, good quality)
  • 38 teaspoon ground vanilla bean
  • For Vanilla Almond Butter
  • 38 teaspoon ground vanilla bean
  • For Cinnamon Almond Butter
  • 12 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Meanwhile place almonds in a food processor and chop finely.
  3. Place almond pieces in the skillet and dry toast for about 5 minutes. The almonds should smell roasty and have a slightly golden brown colour.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  5. Place almonds, oil and salt in a food processor and process into a thick paste. You can also use an immersion blender for this.
  6. If you like your almond butter less thick, just add a little more oil or water until you reach the desired consistency.
  7. Now add in the flavourings of your choice. Mix them in well with a spoon.
  8. Enjoy!
