  • 2 cups unsalted almonds
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and seeds scraped
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil, to help smooth


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. On large baking sheet spread out almonds and roast in oven for 10-12 minutes until slightly brown. Be very careful not to burn the nuts.
  3. Transfer to your food processor and process for 10-15 minutes, scraping down the sides as necessary. At this point the almonds should start to clump together. Continue to process until you reach the desired consistency. I always process until my almond butter is liquid like. 

  4. If desired add salt, vanilla bean seeds, and honey and process again for another minute. If not smooth or it gets clumpy, add in 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and process again!

  5. Transfer to tupperware or mason jar and store at room temperature or in fridge. If you store at room temp, simply give the almond butter a stir before you use it.

Recipe Notes

You can use raw almonds, although it may take a bit longer to make the almond butter. Feel free to alter flavors however you'd like.
