3 Ingredient Homemade Almond Butter

This 3 ingredient homemade almond butter is easy, delicious, and free from the preservatives of store-bought nut butters! Great on toast, in oatmeal, smoothies, or even in dressings and marinades. Homemade almond butter stores great and does not have the oil separation of store-bought butters. No oil needed – almonds, honey, and salt blend together perfectly into a creamy butter.

How long does homemade almond butter last and how to store?

This homemade almond butter will last about a month in an airtight container. Keep in the fridge or at room temperature. Storing in the fridge will help preserve the almond butter longer, the mixture will be thicker if keeping in the fridge. Homemade almond butter will not have the oil separation like store-bought almond butter does.

I love using these Weck Jars for storing my homemade nut butters!

Tools I used for this recipe:

  • Rubber Spatula ā€“ a must for scrapping almond butter out of the food processor.
  • USA Pan Half Sheet Pan ā€“ my go-to sheet pans, these are truly non-stick and clean up nicely.
  • Ninja Food Processor – my favorite affordable, yet powerful food processor, perfect for this almond butter
