We came home from Costco the other day with a bunch of nuts, including DH. I really liked the way this turned out.
Amounts are approximate.
Put in food processor:
2 C or so whole almonds
Process for a few minutes, then turn off FP, process again. Repeat. A lot. You can burn out your FP if you don't let it rest. Add
2 T coconut oil
Process some more, turning off for a few minutes to cool off.
Couple squirts of agave syrup
Process more, turning off to let rest, until the butter is smooth and creamy.
I poured this into a pint jar and refrigerated it. I nuked the jar for 30 seconds, and it was spreadable. The coconut oil makes it solid when cold.
The recipes I looked up called for different techniques, including no oil or sweetener, or stirring them in at the end, but this worked for me. Really nice with some good jam.
