Sea Salt Roasted Almond Butter


Holy baby jezus. I just dropped my friend Sasha off at the airport which marks the end of a nine day period of visitors constantly streaming in and out of the house. Don’t get me wrong, I loved every minute of the company, but now I can do all of the weird stuff I do when I’m alone: talk to myself, walk around naked, eat using no utensils/pour food directly into my mouth from the pot, fart when I feel like it, scratch my butt. Okay, I do all of those things around other people, but the sentiment is the same.

One thing about having guests is that I’ve done much less cooking than usual. I was so excited to show my visitors my favorite restaurants, diners, and holes-in-the-wall that I cooked almost nothing for a week and a half except for toast. The one exception to this has been almond butter. I’ve been churning out almond butter like a FIEND; roasted, salted, cinnamon’ed, raw-you name it. I’ve totally perfected the technique and now I’m gonna share it wit you.


Sea Salt Roasted Almond Butter

  • 4-5 cups raw or roasted almonds*
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
*you can buy pre-roasted almonds or roast them yourself on a cookie sheet for 12-15 mins @ 275º
1. Place almonds in a food processor and process for 1-2 minutes, until a rough meal forms.
2. Turn the processor off, scrape down the sides with a spatula or spoon, then process another 2-3 minutes. Repeat the scraping down process until the nuts “butter” or become liquidy and smooth. Once smooth, add the salt and process another minute or so. Slather on toast or eat straight with a spoon!
