What makes this recipe so popular? I can think of a few reasons. First, it’s very healthy and actually good for you. It is high in fiber, which helps your body retain more water and keep you fuller longer throughout the day.

Second, you can use all organic products for the almond butter. This is important because there are many things that are not organic that you will need to avoid. I suggest using natural butter instead of hydrogenated oils. Hacked oils are used by most restaurants and nutritionists to save money.

Third, you can use organic ingredients for your almond butter. This alone might tip you in the direction of using this healthy food. When you are buying the almonds, organic is always better. You will also save some money too. Some of the best nuts for almond butter are pecans and walnuts.

How do you prepare this recipe? In the first step you will want to drain the nuts, rinse them under cold water and then refrigerate. Do not put them in the microwave, as they will retain a lot of moisture and heat. In the next steps you will chop them into little pieces.

Food Processing

If you have a food processor or a blender, finely chop the almonds. Add the chopped almonds to the coconut oil. Blend all of the ingredients together until the mixture starts to smooth out.

Let this mixture cool down and then use a food grade sealer to wrap it in aluminum foil. This will keep the mixture from melting, while it is in storage. Place it in the refrigerator for about two days. Before you use it, make sure it has cooled down to room temperature.

Taste Of The Final Product

This recipe makes about 1 tablespoon of almond butter. If you are using refined white sugar, you can choose to only add about half a cup of this mixture. If you are using raw sugar, you can only use about a tablespoon of it. You can also adjust the amount of honey and maple syrup that you use as they will play a significant role in the taste of the final product.

Another way to enjoy the benefits of this recipe is to make a delicious sauce out of it. Simply take a tablespoon of the almond butter and combine it with a cup of low-fat milk, a quarter cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, and a few pinches of salt. You can use your blender or processor to blend the mixture until it reaches the desired consistency. Then simply pour it into small jars and let it stand for about an hour so the mixture will solidify.

Benefits To Using Almond Butter

There are many benefits to using almond butter. It is rich in protein, which helps build strong muscles. It is also high in vitamins A, B, and C and iron. This nut is great for heart health, because it has been shown to lower cholesterol. It is also a good source of fiber, which can help eliminate constipation and other digestive problems. The almond content in the product keeps it from weighing you down, as it does not have much fat.

You can also use it for baking. The texture is a bit different than regular butter. You can bake cookies, cakes, or use it in a frying pan. In any way that you use it, you will find it makes dishes and recipes more flavorful and appealing.

If you do not like the taste of almond butters on your cereal, try adding some sunflower or amaranth flour to your mix. It will add a nice flavor that many people love. You can make a delicious meal with this product by mixing almond butter with some flaxseed oil or hemp seed oil. It is healthier than regular vegetable oils that you may be used to using for your cooking. This is an excellent way to incorporate more healthy foods into your diet.
