Two Peas and Their Pod

Sea Salt & Honey Almond Butter

It’s been a good, but busy week. I am so happy it is Friday! I hope to find time to relax this weekend. You never know with the little pea though, he never runs out of energy:) We’ve been walking three times a day and playing non-stop. Speaking of the little pea, today is his 7 month birthday! Happy birthday to our Caleb. The time sure is going quickly.

Ok, are you ready for an easy recipe? It’s Friday so we all need a little break, right? This Sea Salt and Honey Almond Butter is as easy as they come. I found the recipe on Tasty Kitchen via the fabulous Erin of Naturally Ella. I love making homemade nut butters so when I saw a sweet and salty version, of course I tried it immediately.

There are only three ingredients involved: almonds, honey, and sea salt. I bet you have everything in your pantry right now. You do need a powerful blender or food processor, but that is it. You can have the most delicious nut butter in minutes without doing any work. Plus, it is much cheaper to make at home.

The honey and sea salt compliment the almonds perfectly. This trio is perfection! I love eating the Sea Salt and Almond Butter on toast, apple slices, and crackers. It also makes a killer sandwich. I spread the almond butter on whole wheat bread and add banana slices and an extra drizzle of honey. Oh yum! Store the almond butter in the fridge in a cute little jar or plastic container. And I won’t tell if you take out the jar from the fridge and dig in with a spoon:) It’s good all on it’s own!

    Holy Moly.! Anything thing with sea salt in the title gets me everytime! Especially if it has sea salt and some sort of nut butter. LOVE it!

  2. This looks divine! 😀 I’ve got a butt-load of nuts in my pantry, just waiting to become nut butters. This looks like a must make. Yum! 😀

  3. Mmm pure, healthy, and delicious. Great idea!

    So my nut butters never come out quite right. This combo of honey and sea salt is a must try esp since I just got my new 14 cup processor. YUM!

  5. Happy 7-months to Baby Caleb!

    I can almost hear my husband trying some of this! It would be better than Nutella for him I’m sure.

  7. Yum! This looks fantastic! I LOVE homemade almond butter, its the best!!

    My blender is broken which makes me so incredibly sad…as soon as it’s back up and running I’m making this!

    My husband would love this stuff. I always see him coming out of the office with a spoon stuck in his mouth….I know it’s from some sort of nut butter. Your little man is 7 months and mine is 6. I totally understand the busy feeling of each day. Maybe I should start having a spoonful of nut butter in the afternoons to keep me going.

    Your photos are always so gorgeous! I need to try this!

  11. Marian (Sweetopia) — April 27, 2012 @ 8:57 am

    And meant to say, happy 7 months to Caleb! xo

  12. Lindsey @ Family Food Finds — April 27, 2012 @ 9:23 am

    We use almond butter almost every day in our house. What a creative way to change it up a bit. Happy 7 months to your little boy!

  13. amanda @ fake ginger — April 27, 2012 @ 9:25 am

    This is torture! I ran out of almond butter earlier this week and haven’t made it to the store yet. I need to invest in a big food processor so I can make my own.

  14. Sara Phillips — April 27, 2012 @ 9:43 am

    OMG I must try this, I love almond nut butter and spend a fortune on buying organic jars. Thanks so much! Found out almonds are good for asthmatics yay!!

  15. Ashley — April 27, 2012 @ 9:44 am

    Awesome!! I am constantly whipping up nut butter and even after 2 years I still am amazed by how easy it is.

  16. Erica — April 27, 2012 @ 9:51 am

    I haven’t homemade nut butter in a while- its so darn good. The honey must really make this. Perfect sweetener. Happy birthday to the little man

  17. sarah — April 27, 2012 @ 9:52 am

    This sounds fantastic. I haven’t started making my own nut butters yet; it’s on my to-do list. I will have to start with this one!

  18. Lynne @ 365 Days of Baking — April 27, 2012 @ 10:02 am

    Oooh, I so wish that my food processor was bigger. I want to make A LOT of this!! Maybe the Mother’s Day fairy would think about bringing me one. 😉

  19. Laurie {Simply Scratch} — April 27, 2012 @ 10:11 am

    This is going on my “to make” list for sure! Sea salt, honey… almond butter OH MYYY!!

  20. Brian — April 27, 2012 @ 10:16 am

  25. Stephanie — April 27, 2012 @ 11:40 am

    This sounds fantastic! I’ve not tried making my own nut butter at home but I definitely need to, and I love that you added in the honey!

  26. Heather (Heather's Dish) — April 27, 2012 @ 11:51 am

  28. Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes — April 27, 2012 @ 1:37 pm

  30. Lauren — April 27, 2012 @ 1:39 pm

    LOVE almond butter! The sea salt and honey thing sort of has me mesmerized! Mmmm…

  31. Cait's Plate — April 27, 2012 @ 2:25 pm

    I’ve done homemade peanut butter but never almond butter – when I do finally break into the almond butters at home I’m DEFINITELY using this recipe!!

  32. You’re right…I did have everything in my pantry. So easy to make….I smeared it on an apple slice and topped it with granola. A perfect snack. I posted a pic on my FB Fan page:

    Thank you!

  33. Love the sweet and salty twist to this! Sounds perfect for my English Muffin in the morning.

  34. stephchows — April 27, 2012 @ 3:16 pm

    Oh how I love recipes like these! This sounds amazing!!

  35. Nicole {Sweet Peony} — April 27, 2012 @ 3:25 pm

    Beautiful!!! Totally a fan of making your own nut butter :)

  36. kitchen essence — April 27, 2012 @ 6:17 pm

    wow! That looks awesome!

  37. Joanne — April 27, 2012 @ 9:23 pm

    I’ve been realizing lately that storebought flavored nut butters just aren’t doing it for me so I should just make my own. I’m gonna have to start with this!

  38. Julie @ Table for Two — April 27, 2012 @ 10:01 pm

    i love the simplicity of flavors in this recipe and even at it’s simplest, it’s still got so much flavor. i love sea salt in spreads like this..especially since it’s also sweet. looks so good, Maria!

  39. Miss @ Miss in the Kitchen — April 27, 2012 @ 10:55 pm

    So easy and I imagine it is so delicious!

  40. Lynna H. — April 27, 2012 @ 11:03 pm
