I’ve been making nut butters for a long time now , whilst my favourite is a combination of anything with Cashews a lot of people have requested a plain almond butter, and then find they have issues with it.

Almond butter is a bit trickier as its one of the least oily nuts. However it does work but it takes a little longer. Its very simple really, it just takes a little more patience and time.

Today I made Almond butter, with no oil just 500g of almonds with skin on, not roasted , not activated just natural almonds tossed from the pack into the CC bowl.

But then……..

I made – Almond Butter Biscuits – yes a new recipe for the Cuisine Companion although I am sure you can adjust for other food processors. This is a easy , quick YUMMY recipe , I have to say I really had to restrain myself from eating more but surprisingly they were actually filling !

Best of all they are flour, dairy and processed sugar free ! for those of you that can’t partake in these ingredients.
