Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups roasted salted almonds (you may use unsalted if you prefer)
  • 1-2 tbsp whole espresso beans, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and process for 2-3 minutes, occasionally stopping to scrape down the sides with a spatula. Mixture will become very finely chopped, to sandy, and then will begin to resemble a creamy almond butter as the oil from the almonds releases. Continue processing until almond butter is a smooth, spreadable consistency.

Notes

I suggest starting with 1 tbsp of espresso beans, processing, and then taste testing. Add additional beans if you'd like a stronger espresso flavor.
 
This recipe yields approximately 8 oz of almond butter.
