I am obsessed with Trader Joe’s raw almond butter and they have been out for a few weeks.  So this event FINALLY motivated me to make my own.  It seriously took only 3-5 minutes TOTAL in my Vitamix!  And the best part is it comes out warm…YUM!

For this size batch use: (I did not measure exact…)
1.5 cups raw almonds (I buy mine at costco)
30 “twists” of sea salt (ok this was a little much – cut back to 15 or 20)
1 tbsp grapeseed oil

Blend on high for 1 minute (do not blend longer or it will blow up your machine).  Scoop out with a spoon & store in a glass container in the fridge.  You could even add cinnamon…YUM YUM YUM!
