I’m just in the early days of using my new high powered blender, roughly how long does it take to get to the right consistency? I’ve been finding everything seems to move out to the sides and then its difficult to then get it uniform? Any thoughts?

Kelly I think mine would take between 30-60 seconds, but it can take up to 15 minutes depending on your blender / processor and the consistency you want. You can also add macadamia oil if you want to. I haven’t strictly timed it sorry. I hope this is of some help. Bianca

What type of food processor/blender is robust enough to make nut butter like this? Can a “regular” blender handle this? I don’t have the funds for a vitamix.

Reply
bianca August 6, 2013 - 12:31 pm

Do you have a food processor? You may find it will work better in a food processor. Some of the regular blenders do not cope well and I would hate for the recipe to break your blender. I hope this helps, Bianca

It took the best part of a minute in my Thermomix. Started off looking like breadcrumbs and then changed consistency. I added a dollop of macadamia oil near the end because I love the stuff. It’s delicious. Thank you for the simple, tasty, nourishing recipe!

How long would the almond butter last for, before it expires? That is, if it actually will last that long in fridge!

I struggled to make creamy almond butter with raw almonds for months. Once I discovered roasting the nuts first and what a DRAMATIC difference it makes (both in ease & flavor) I was simply amazed. I use my Kitchen Aid processor & it rarely takes more than 11 or 12 minutes to make a super smooth & creamy nut butter. LOVE IT!!

Hi, I love your recipes. .. made your roasted almond butter but it is more like almond meal than butter? Anything you would suggest? I find my versions are a bit crumbly generally….Thanks and you are preventing me getting gest diabetes again! 😉

Reply
bianca November 8, 2013 - 10:23 am

Hi Georgie, the first thing I would suggest is doubling your blending time, if this doesn’t work then you may need to add a little macadamia oil. I hope this helps. Many thanks, Bianca

Hi Gen, just keep an eye on them, once they are fragrant you can remove them, I think it will be between 8-10 minutes. I hope this helps. Bianca

Hi Bianca. Just made the almond butter and it is delicious!! I was a little confused at first when I got to the nut dust stage but I just kept on blending et voila! I only have a tiny food processor so I had to do it in two batches and I reckon I was blending for about 15-20 minutes and driving my neighbours nuts (tee hee) in the process…but it was well worth it. I also made the nut-free bliss balls and banana loaf last weekend for our guests and they went down a storm. Thanks for your delicious recipes 🙂

Hi, I’ve just made this and it worked perfectly! i was wondering whether you can do this with other nuts also? Like macadamias or cashews, or a mixture of a few? If so would you always need to roast them first? My 10 month old loved the almond butter on toast this morning! Thanks a lot!

When I tried to make this – all I got was powdered nuts – so I added some rice bran oil. I don’t know how it was supposed to turn into nut paste when it just powedered it finer and finer?

Reply
Bianca Slade July 15, 2015 - 10:21 am

HI Charlie, what you have done sounds perfect. Whether or not it can turn to a paste without the addition of oil depends on the strength of the processor being used. I have added a note to the bottom of the recipe in the hope that this will help in future. I hope you liked the butter and that you find some other recipes that you enjoy. Bianca
