How to make Almond Butter?

Yay!! I am finally getting back on track. I made up my mind to eat only healthy stuffs so I eat only healthy stuffs! I even worked out today, not as long as I usually do but considering my tiredness I still call it a success. And now I am making all kinds of super foods I have long prepared myself to. Like almond butter, hummus, whole wheat bread, extra nutritious smoothies...etc. I've made peanut butter many times before and I absolutely loved it. Although it really tastes different than the store-bought Skippy and Peter Pan peanut butters. And I love those, too. I am a true peanut butter junkie. I could eat it all the time but in Hungary there isn't much of a selection I could choose from. And it's not that great for my skin, either...So if I don't want to be left without some kind of nut butter, I've gotta make it for myself. Today I saw almonds in the store and the first thing that came to my mind was yaaaay I am SO making some almond butter today! :)
It is so healthy - if we're not going overboard - and because of the protein it fills me up so much and satisfies my sweet tooth, as well. It can be used for the morning smoothie or spread it on pancakes, waffles or just plain toast. There are so many variations how to use it.

Almond Butter

200 grams almonds 
2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 teaspoon honey

Toast the almonds for about 10 minutes.
I used almonds with skin, you can use almonds without skin. Doesn't make much of a difference, only in the color of the butter. Mine is a little darker.
Put almonds in a food processor and start processing them. Add 2 tablespoons of peanut oil and process some more and add the honey. 
The result should look like this.


  1. Hi,

    I do not know why but never made or tried the almond butter. Would you tell me what you can do with it? it looks interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  2. You can use it pretty much the same way as peanut butter. Spread it on bread, pancakes, waffles, eat with apple slices or with banana. Use it to make cookies. The sky is the limit! :)

  3. Do you think replacing the peanut oil with olive oil would work?

  4. I'm sure it is fine with olive oil, in fact I've seen recipes that called for olive oil. I just don't like it in sweet things because it has a pretty strong taste. But it's probably only me. :)

  5. @bayaderka: OH MY WORD - you need to go make this right now! You haven't tried almond butter?! If you like natural peanut butter, you'll LOVE almond butter. Also, you can use maple syrup instead of the oil -- it lends the moisture while also giving it a sweet kick. Maple Almond Butter is my all-time lick-it-off-the-floor favorite. :)

  6. How long can you store the almond butter? :) Thank you!

  7. I stored it for about 2 months in the fridge and it didn't go bad at all! Although, to keep safe store it for a month. If it's not gone by then :)

Homemade Nutella

I was an exchange student (ah how many times I've said this sentence...) 5 years ago in the US. I'm not gonna talk about how it was (AMAZING) but then and there I gained sisters! Now I have one living in the States and one living in Germany. And next week we are gonna be reunited! I can't wait, I am so excited! So this week I am going to Germany and was thinking what I should bring. Because basically Germany has everything that Hungary has, if not more. So what to give what to give? I was thinking really hard when a completely random thing came to my mind. I should make some nutella. She loves nutella. Frankly, who doesn't, right? I love it, too although it's been years since I ate any. I can't really explain why because I always think that if I eat just one spoon, I will gain a 100 pounds immediately. But with this thought, I shouldn't be eating any brownies, cookies...etc.  BUT today I tried my homemade Nutella. OH MY GOD. I wouldn't have though

Brown Butter Walnut Cake with Chocolate-Mocha Ganache

This post is yet again an example of how I procrastinate when it comes to studying or making a presentation. Whichever. This is going to be a lovely tale about a "magnifique" cake.  I got my inspiration to make that brown butter walnut sensation from  Procrastobaker . It is seriously one of the best things I've ever baked. I do not think the photos do justice when I tried to catch how breath-taking the cake is once a bite lands in your mouth... It is crispy on the outside and so juicy in the inside and the chocolate-mocha ganache goes just perfectly well with it. I changed the original recipe a bit, as I worked with walnuts and I added a layer of chocolate cream inside the cake, as well. Also, it is important to add that it is best one day after it was made. While it chilled in the fridge. Oh my... It was such a hit! Definitely going to make it again...and again... :) But I won't keep you on your toes and fill you in with this lovely recipe!
