Pumpkin Spice Almond Butter Recipe

This recipe yields a very smooth, “drippy”, slightly sweet, slightly salty almond butter.

You can omit the maple syrup, lighten the spices, use raw almonds, and otherwise adjust all ingredients to get the exact kind of almond butter you love.

What kind of oil to use

Any neutral tasting oil will work. I like to use almond oil to match the flavor perfectly, but canola, avocado, or sunflower will work too. I would not use olive oil or anything with a stronger taste and smell.

Roasting Almonds

Note I started with roasted and salted almonds to save a step, but if you’re starting with raw almonds you’ll want to toast them first (if desired) and increase the salt a little bit.

How To Make Almond Butter in a food processor

1 – Toast raw almonds or use pre-toasted

While you certainly can make almond butter from raw almonds, I personally love the roasted flavor.

In my Cinnamon Vanilla recipe, I toasted them myself.

For this recipe, I use roasted + salted almonds! It saves a step if you buy them roasted, but it’s totally up to you what you have on hand.

2 – Add almonds and seasonings to a food processor and whirl, scraping down the sides as needed

Going from almonds to almond butter will take 5-8 minutes of time.

At first you’ll get almond meal.

Then you’ll get a big almond dough ball. (Push it back down with a spatula.)

Then drippy almond butter will begin to form! It will get warm in there.

If you don’t end up with almond butter, add a little bit more oil.
