Do It Yourself Almond Butter

We love recipes that incorporate more protein into them, including our chocolate truffles.  Do It Yourself Almond Butter is a way to have fresh butter and know what’s in it. It’s great to do this in a pinch, when you are out of peanut butter or any other kind of nut butter.
