Almond meal

1

Pulse the almonds for a few minutes until you obtain the texture of almond meal.

Process and scrape

Continue to process for a few more minutes. Notice the ground almonds “sticking” to the sides of the bowl. Scrape down the sides.

A clump forms

The ground almonds begin to clump together and move as a mass. This is a direct result of the oils being released.

Grainy nut butter

After a few more minutes of processing, the mixture begins to take the form of a spread, but it is still very grainy.

Keep processing

5

Continue to process, stopping if necessary to prevent the food processor from overheating.

Smooth and creamy

At the end of the process, the texture is smooth and creamy. Optional: add a pinch of salt
