alomnd butter on apple

Almond Butter

Nut butters are an essential snack item for the Paleo diet. They have of fair amount of calories, proteins and fats to keep you going between meals. The challenge is finding a way to fit these creamy jewels into your budget when you don’t want to spend $11 or $12 per pound for almond or cashew butter at the store. Peanut butter is cheap and delicious, but is not included in the Paleo diet. Upon learning this news, I set out to find a way to have a constant supply of delicious nut butter and then it hit me…MAKE YOUR OWN!

Dry roasted almonds at Sam’s Club are only $5 per pound. So at this rate, I can cut my cost for nut butter in half. It’s the little things, folks. Ginny and I pulled out our food processor for the Ninja and set to work. Note: the blade in the picture below is not actually a blade. We realized this after a few minutes of tossing the nuts around aimlessly.

We found it is best to roast them for several minutes before processing to get more of that roasted flavor we all love. We also found that because almonds have less oil than some other nuts, it is best to add a few tablespoons of coconut oil to smooth things out. Keepin’ it Paleo yo. Disclaimer: it will take several minutes to blend these nuts down to a smooth consistency and if your food processor gets too hot, like ours did, give it a rest for a few minutes. The Ninja was a fabulous wedding gift and we want it to last for a long time!

After ten minutes or so of processing, the almond mixture will start to slow down and thicken. This is exactly what you want! Keep going until you have that smooth texture you are craving. There are so many things you can do with almond butter. Use it for anything you would use peanut butter for and it’s even better! I made some Paleo almond butter cookies last night with a maple syrup and almond butter topping that were really great. Since I can’t have any refined sugar, this was a way to satisfy my sweet tooth without cheating.

Three weeks into the Paleo diet, things are going really well. My blood sugar has stabilized (like never before) and I don’t have those insatiable sugar cravings that kept me on edge all the time. If only I had known about this twenty years ago! I highly recommend giving the diet a try to anyone suffering from blood sugar issues or other health problems related to diet. At first, it was tough because there are lots of things I couldn’t eat, but once I realized how much better I felt, the desire for those cookies and milk and pasta and other simple carbs have become a distant memory.

Keep a large container of homemade almond butter around and you will be a happy camper!
