How to Make Almond Butter in Your Vitamix

and a recipe for Paleo Almond Butter Blondies

Making almond butter at home is so delicious, simple, and cost effective, you’ll never go back to store bought! Watch my video to learn how easy this nut butter is to make, and the tricks that will make it a success.

Here’s my favorite grain and dairy free/Paleo Blondie recipe. If your almond butter doesn’t turn out, just add a tablespoon of coconut oil (to the total amount of almond butter), and turn your mistake into soft and delicious blonde brownies.

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup almond butter buy quality almond butter here
  2. 1/3 cup honey
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1 Tbsp. vanilla
  5. 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  6. 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  7. 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  8. 2/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  9. 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (here's my favorite brand)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large bowl (I use my Kitchen Aid), mix almond butter and honey
  3. Add egg and vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
  4. Add coconut flakes
  5. Sprinkle in baking soda and powder
  6. Add chocolate chips
  7. Scrape contents into an ungreased (preferably glass) 8" square baking dish
  8. Press firmly into pan
  9. Bake for 18-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with dry crumbs.
Notes
  1. The dough will be quite firm and very oily seeming. Don't worry, it will come together when baked!
  2. To make almond butter: Toast almonds in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Let cool and blend into almond butter using the dry container of your Vitamix.

    Nice recipe, I can’t wait to try this one out. I bought a Vitamix a few years ago and love it – there’s so many things you can make with it. My girlfriend actually wrote a Vitamix review on another health blog here if you or anyone wants to check it out: http://www.charlottesvineyard.com/vitamix-5200-review/

    what is the best blenders to use for making almond butter ,and coconut butter ?

    • http://www.healthnutnation.com Alison

      Definitely the Vitamix. I use the dry container for both (see link above- at end of recipe). I’ve also used the nutri-bullet successfully for coconut butter. However, I had to use quite a bit if coconut oil, and I think it would wear the nutri-bullet down over time.

    Alison, my dad has diabetes,….. can I do the recipe without the honey and use stevia instead???

    • http://www.healthnutnation.com Alison

      Elena,
      Honey is a viscous liquid, and has two jobs along with sweetening- holding the ingredients together and keeping the mixture moist. You may be able to substitute in another egg, or a TBS of flax meal in 1/4 cup of water for the honey and then a few drops of liquid stevia (or powdered, whatever you have) to sweeten. Let me know if you try it and what you come up with!

        I’ll do it tonight! :D
