How to make roasted almond butter in food processor

Learn how to make a smooth and creamy homemade roasted almond butter in a food processor.





  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Spread almonds on a baking sheet.
  3. Roast almonds at 350F for 8 to 12 minutes. Roasting time may vary depending on your oven. My almonds are always perfect at 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them, if they look golden brown they’re ready – don’t burn and don’t over roast or flavor will be affected. If they are under roasted your food processor will have to work harder and butter won’t be as smooth. The first few times might be trial and error until you learn what time is best for you!
  4. Let roasted almonds cool down for a few minutes, and the transfer to your food processor (I use this Cuisinart food processor)  and process until smooth and buttery. This will take a few minutes, not seconds. You might have to stop the food processor a few times and scrape down the sides. I use this handy tool for that.
