Has anyone made almond butter?
Cuisinart? Roasted or raw almonds? Any other tips?
I've used my Cuisinart with roasted almonds. I added a tablespoon or so of coconut oil and a tad of honey to it but you probably don't need to use either to get good results.
A few weeks ago I made hazelnut butter that turned out great. Two cups of roasted and skinned nuts put in the Cuisinart with a tablespoon of powdered sugar. AWESOME!!
I've also made almond butter, adding a few tablespoons of peanut oil towards the end. Add as little oil as possible, and maybe a little salt.
Store upside down in the fridge and it will save you some effort mixing it back up every time you want to eat some!
I like to soak almonds overnight and drain the water- the butter tastes sweeter to me. Its also supposed to be better for you, but I see that as a side bonus.
