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!

I guess a mid-range blender would not work for this? It looks so good!
You can try it with your blender, maybe just blend for longer and use a spatula in between mixing.
This looks AMAZING! And so easy! This and a scone and life would pretty much be perfect. 🙂
Nut butters are seriously one of my very favorite foods–I am never without two or three different homemade jars at any one time! Love this recipe. And looking forward to meeting you both next week! 🙂
Yum! I can think of about 10 reasons to make this! Delicious!
I love homemade nut butters too…and this sweet/salty pairing would have me hooked! Happy 7 months to your little man 🙂
Oh yum!! I just wanna grab a spoon and dig in!
I love this! I have always thought about making almond butter or cashew butter; I need to do it, and this sounds like the perfect recipe to start with!
oh wow – delicious looking! Loving cooking with sea salt and have whipped up salted caramel sauce…
am now tempted to try salted caramel and almond sauce…
would it work?
I love nut butters and the addition of sea salt and honey seems perfect. Happy (belated) bday to your little one!x
This looks amazing. I wonder…. How would it taste on a loaf of toast?
I live in Morocco and this reminds me of something made here that is considered quite special. It is called “amlou” and is made of almonds, honey, and argan oil. Argan trees grow here and the oil is considered to be super healthy – and expensive. The argan nuts look a lot like almonds. I like to keep both the oil and the amlou on hand to serve with breads at tea time.
Thank you for the link to this recipe!! The sandwich you described sounds HEAVENLY! I’ve got to make some of this soon 🙂
Maria! How did I miss this? My favorite nuts are honey roasted peanuts… I love honey nut ANYTHING, especially honey nut chex cereal 🙂 Anyway, combining honey + almonds to make almond butter is such a wonderful idea. I made honey roasted peanut butter recently, but I have a feeling the same flavor idea + some sea salt in almond butter would be delicious.
How long will this keep in the fridge? So excited to try it out!!
I kept ours for about 2 weeks in the fridge.
This recipe looks delicious! I am a vegetarian, and I found this under your vegan listing. Just a sidenote, this recipe shouldn’t be classified as vegan. Honey, of course, is a product from a living organism, and vegan foods are 100% plant based. 🙂 Thanks for posting!
I make my own peanut butter and I would have never thought of this.
Thanks for sharing, can’t wait to try it
How long does this stay fresh when stored in the refrigerator?
I always keep ours for 2-3 weeks and it is fine!
This was pretty good! The honey gives it a nice touch. I also think Costco almond butter is right up their with this and it’s something you can buy at the store! Check it out here for a full review: https://thehealthypatron.com/costco-almond-butter/
