While the default tends to be picking up almond butter from the store, it’s actually super easy to make at home. And besides getting the satisfaction of saying you create your own, there’s also the benefit of having it be easily customizable. In the recipe below, we share how to make the perfect almond butter base, with suggestions on how to personalize it with Nutella, vanilla and cinnamon, and maple.
