Crunchy Roasted Almond Butter

Oh...almonds...what am I going to do with you?? Well here's an idea: deviate from another recipe and delve into something new. I've started using roasted almond oil a lot in my cooking at home, adding a mild nutty flavor to the food. In the midst of making almond flour for another dish and separating out the fat, I decided to use the oil to enhance the nuts' potential. This homemade almond butter, made from slivered almonds, is a fast and easy alternative to the store-bought brands, and in my opinion a bit 'cleaner' in flavor. Enjoy!

Servings: 2/3 Cup (approx.)
Prep Time: 5 min

1c Slivered Almonds
1 1/2 Tbsp Roasted Almond Oil
1 1/2 Tbsp Amber Honey
1/4c Slivered Almonds, Crushed

Spoonful of Crunchy Roasted Almond Butter
Process all the ingredients together in a food processor. Done!! Alright, well to expand the recipe just a bit: process slivered almonds in a food processor until finely ground. Continue to process and slowly add in roasted almond oil, followed by honey, scraping any remaining dry powder from the container's sides. A few minutes and voila: roasted almond butter.

Granulated sugar can be used instead of honey, but I found the honey to allow the butter to spread quite well. If a smoother texture is desired, leave out the crushed almonds. Also, almonds in the raw can be used instead of slivered almonds to create a grittier texture (butter will take on a much darker tone).
