    Homemade Almond Butter


    It's soo easy! The following is for a decently large batch, about enough to fill an average sized tupperware container.

    Ingredients -
    • 240 grams of raw Almonds
    • 5-6 scoops of your favorite protein powder (aim for something very low in sugar/carbs)
    • H2O - add and stir until the consistency is to your liking


    GO!! -
    1. Blend the almonds to a fine powder (leave it chunkier if you want it chunky!) and empty into bowl
    2. Add protein and mix thoroughly into almond powder
    3. Add water and stir until the consistency is to your liking


    Store it in the fridge, this will keep the oil from separating and the almond buttery goodness from going bad. Please enjoy responsibly.

    Calorie Content/Serving Size - assuming a scoop of whey = 30 grams on average
    1 serving = 70 grams
    330 calories per serving
    • ~ 20 grams fat
    • ~ 30 grams protein
    • ~ 9 grams carbs (without subtracting fiber content)

    you are the man for posting this recipe. Im gonna have to try this out very soon. Question....

    Is this almond butter better than peanut butter. Obviously with the added whey protein, the macros come out better, but how is the taste?

    thanks

    I think the flavor is great. It'll kind of depend on what flavor of whey you use, but I don't really think you can go wrong (unless it's like fruit punch flavor or something).

    looks like you can freeze it and make it tastier, you can probably do it with peanuts too

    I envisioned a coffee grinder, or a magic bullet. I was considering toasting my almonds first to release the flavours
