Homemade Almond Butter with Flaxseeds

24 Jan

When I saw my local grocery store sold their dry roasted raw almonds for $3.99/lbs, I know I just had to grab some! Most places I’ve seen are selling at much higher price! Besides they sell it in a bulk bin so we can scoop as many as we want. I got total 3lbs of almonds.

I bought a bag of Roasted Golden Flaxseeds from TJ a while back and it had been sitting in my freezer forever. An idea popped in my head: Why don’t I make Almond Butter with Flaxseeds instead?

Super Easy Homemade Almond Butter Flaxseeds
Ingredients:
1 cup of dry roasted raw almonds
About 3/4 cup Roasted golden flaxseeds – I’d reduce it to 1/2 cup next time

Directions:
1. Blend flaxseeds in your food processor until mostly grounded

2. Next pour in the almonds

3. Blend at high speed for about a minute – occasionally stop and scrub the sides. – at this point you got almond meal

4. Keep blending until it becomes nut butter

Like this!

VOILA!

Hmm…the smell of the roasted flaxseeds sure heavenly!

Store in a glass jar and refrigerate.

Use it for dippings, make raw almond cookies etc.

Super easy!

    I use the exact same flaxseed from TJ’s – it is the best and the cheapest! I wish I could eat almonds because I would definitely make this…it looks divine!

      Could you eat other type of nuts or are you allergic to all kinds of nuts?
