  • The best way to make almond butter!!!! I usually make it in the four side jar and it takes forever. 2 minutes and I had 2 cups of almond butter for $3.19. I found roasted almonds on clearance😊

    Valeria on

  • I have the ES3 model. How would I blend this, since my buttons don’t have numbers?

    Sandy White on

  • This didn’t work for me at all! The whole reason I bought this $120 jar was to make nut butter. I tried roasted almonds, I tried raw almonds. I ran it for many minutes until the handle was too hot to touch, and got nothing more than almond powder. I am very disappointed.

    Annette on

  • Does it matter if the almonds are raw or not — I love almond butter so the 2nd thing I made in my Blendtec was almond butter. I have the signature series and was a little confused on the speed to use, it said use speed 7 in the recipe but do I gradually increase to that speed or just start from (on my machine speed 4) the button it says. When I made mine it wasn’t quite as creamy as I was hoping for but I don’t think that I went as long as I should have. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Logan on

  • Blending for a little longer would have definitely given you the creamy smooth almond butter you were hoping for. There is a difference between blending raw and roasted almonds. Raw almonds tend to need a little additional oil to become really smooth, roasted almonds will usually blend smooth without additional oil.

    Blendtec on

  • love this!!!

    mariellen on

  • i love making my own almond butter—esp with the price of almond butter in the stores these days.

    Kyong A on

  • Do I need to start on a lower speed and increase to the suggested speed in the recipe or just start at speed 4?

    Logan on

  • Is it possible to make it with Wild Side Jar?

    albanianero on

  • perhaps i’m having a senior moment, but what is meant by ‘turn lid counterclockwise during blending’? what if i have a wildside jar only?

    melanie on

  • Almond butter is the best… I have it on brown rice cakes w/ sliced banana, honey drizzle and a sprinkle of cinnamon WTFork! It’s great!

    J Johnson on

  • ohh yummi , I want to win a Blendtec

    Karina on

  • I love almond butter. Making my own makes so much sense.

  • is the almond butter supposed to be really hot when it’s done?

    lindsey53005 on

  • Hello, I Have a Blendtec Total Blender…It is amazing, but I am having trouble with the almond butter.

    Recently I have been trying to make the almond butter. It is a pain to make. A pain suffered mostly by my blender. I follow the instructions to the letter, yet, when I start blending in order to make the almond butter, the instructions in the recipe manual fall short, and I have to scrape and blend and scrape and blend…etc. I do not mind the scraping, but every time I start the blending cycle in order to make the butter, the blender starts fine but then as I ramp up the revolutions it finishes the cycle with a few spams.

    Long story short, the original container became damaged, the blade got loose and wobbly. I had to order a new container. Also, at the time of the incident with the blade, the rotating socket, where the bottom of the blade connects to the motor, began to emit some smoke. I ordered a new 4 side container (because I do not think the motor was damaged)…

    So today my new container came. I put it to the Almond Butter challenge again. 3 cups of roasted almonds…etc…it performed well, but with the same spasm, scrapes, and blends…

    As you may assume, I feel like I am going down the same road that might lead me to the previous situation…

    If you have any tips, suggestions, comments, I would greatly appreciate them…

    NPF_Almond Butter Fanatic on

  • I mix half raw and half roasted… yummy! I am

    so addicted to this!

    Barbara on

  • Hi Melanie, the recipe instructions are written for the Twister jar, which is round and has tines. You turn the jar during blending to scrape the almond butter toward the blade. You can use the WildSide jar for this recipe. Midway through blending, you may need to turn off the motor, take off the lid, and scrape down the sides of the jar. The result will still be delicious almond butter. :-)

    suzybills on

  • I keep trying to make raw almond butter with the wild side jar using 1.5 c almonds and a tbl of oil. I have blended it 10 times at speed 7 and 9, scraping to the center each time and it never got smooth. Suggestions?

    Helpme on

  • I am so excited I have to share this somewhere and this seems the best place. I have been struggling to make a creamy raw almond butter in my Blendtec with the twister jar. So far all my attempts gave me smooth but dry butter, even adding some oil. I had success tonight and this is what I did. FIRST I ground the nuts in my Wildside jar with the grind grain setting. Then I put the ground raw almonds in the Twister Jar and again used the grind grains setting. I had the smoothest creamiest raw almond butter before the cycle even finished. Amazing! I am sure I could have done the whole thing in the Twister Jar and will do that next time. The secret is in the setting :)

    Esoterica on

  • Is it possible to make it with Wild Side Jar?

    Kay on

  • I tried with the wildside using raw almonds and it did not turn out creamy at all. I stopped and scrapped down the sides at least a dozen times. I don’t want it to get too hot as it won’t still be considered raw then. any tips?

    HeatherinLA on

  • Hi Kay, yes you can make almond butter in the WildSide jar. You may need to stop the blender a few times during blending to scrape down the sides of the jar.

    Blendtec on

  • Hi Heather. When using raw almonds, it’s more difficult to get the creamy texture. If you want to add additional oil when you make it, that will help achieve a more creamy texture.

    Blendtec on

  • Hi Blendtec – for those of us with more "senior moments" than we care to admit, are there any plans to make the online recipe index easier to use — for example, "click here for a simple list," and perhaps searchable way to only pull up recipes that use the jar we have (classic blender, Wildside jar for me)

    KarenL on

  • what kind of oil do you add to make it creamy

    joyceka on

  • Hi Karen, thanks for the question. The answer is yes, we definitely are working on adding more features to our recipe site and making the index easier to use.

    In the meantime, thank you for your patience.

    Blendtec on

  • Wait kind of oil do you suggest?

    Steve Ingress on

  • We don’t add any oil. We just put the almonds in the jar and blend.

    Blendtec on

  • I obtained a creamy texture by using peanut oil

    Hshah0921 on

  • When I’ve tried making almond butter in my Blendtec, it looked nothing like that video, and I purchased the Twister Jar when I couldn’t get it to work in the WildSide. In the WildSide the machine actually overheated, shut down, and a mechanical smell started coming out of the machine. With the Twister Jar, the almond butter makes the jar even too hot to the touch. We prefer raw almonds because they don’t have the carcinogenic acrylamides that roasted almonds do, but we’ve given up on that and are using roasted almonds and still have to use canola oil. One of my main goals in getting the Blendtec was to make nut butters so I am disappointed. The end product I can make looks much more like almond meal than like the liquidy almond butter in the video.

    swingerofbirches on

  • for Raw almond without any added oil

    to prevent heating the fat
    or oil from the nuts, use small quantities and pause many times between,
    before the jar gets warm! it takes about 30 or 40 min to get a soft
    creamy texture! very Disappointing!

    mih on

  • I’m having mine now with my raw flax crackers! It’s sooo yum!!

    Milla on

  • If you turn it to the right, it will not scrape the sides as well and give you a thick blend. I now many people soak the almonds for a couple of hours or overnight before blending.

    Blendtec on

  • Try soaking the almonds in water for a couple of hours or overnight.

    Blendtec on

  • Really?! I was going to purchase a Blendtec and Twister Jar for the ease of making nut butters…

    Blair on

  • I’ve jus tried making this in the Wildside and it was taking so long scraping down the sides I transferred it to a much smaller old blender I had, which did the trick. I think if you’re going to do this regularly then get the twister jar or it’ll drive you insane!

    Sharon Goodrum on

  • Would be nice if the recipe stated adding oil (how much) or soaking. I was unable to get anything creamy in 40 seconds at speed 7. It was just a hard clump. Gonna try soaking now.

    Jay L on

  • Unrefined olive oil is best I’m told

    Jay L on

  • They say yes – but you’ll have to stop, scrape the sides, etc.

    Jay L on

  • I tried the suggestions above – the Twister jar will not make nice creamy butter with raw almonds. DO NOT SOAK THEM – that does not help, only makes it worse. Blending dry is best but it will not be creamy. Trying to over-blend will heat it up and won’t help.

    Jay L on

  • TOTALLY! I’m buying a juicer for my wheatgrass and I think it will do nut butters so fingers crossed.

    Jay L on

  • Olive oil gave it a weird taste – going to try peanut oil as suggested elsewhere.

    Jay L on

  • I didn’t like the results of doing the soaking to be honest. Blending dry allows it chop finer before turning to butter.

    Jay L on

  • But in the fridge coconut will harden up

    Jay L on

  • Melted coconut oil would probably give a great taste and added nutrients.

    Andrew Lawrence Elbaum on

  • I have used grape seed oil and it works well. It has very little taste and can be used as a substitute to olive oil in most recipes.

    Nick L on

  • My blender just arrived in the mail today & I am in the process of moving on Saturday so I don’t have the time to experiment but I am excited. I can see why you would be concerned about it hardening. If it’s blended all well then the butter would stay smooth?

    It might be more difficult to spread because it hardens, but, coconut oil is very soft and spreadable already when solid at room temperature. But in the fridge it would probably get pretty firm. In the end, I think it would still be great with a little patience.

    In terms of oils to use, lots would work great. I am probably going to experiment with coconut oil, hemp oil, & palm oil.

    If those aren’t available I would probably choose peanut oil over canola oil. Canola could still be used.

    Andrew Lawrence Elbaum on

  • What do you mean by speed 7, when I push the up and down arrow it keeps going , if I stop pushing the blender stops too, I’m confused

    Ana Lane on

  • Try adding a tiny bit of olive oil to the nuts in the jar(good quality oil) and blend in pulses. I made the most amazing almond butter that way.

    Belvedere on

  • You will need to push the "Up" arrow until it reaches speed 7. The screen on your blender will display the speed number.

    Blendtec on

  • Can I make almond butter using the soup cycle? I have the designer series. If so, I wish you had a recipe for it listed for instruction purposes. That’s one of the main reason’s why I bought it was to make nut butters. :)

    Audrey on

  • Can I make almond butter using the soup cycle? I have the designer series. Thanks! :)

    Guest on

  • This is my ONLY small complaint about Blendtec. I do love my blender and I don’t have any regrets, however, I just made almond butter with my Blendtec Wildside Designer. I will admit that the Vitamix makes it look a little easier. You do have to work some to make nut butter. BUT with that being said I was able to get a creamy nut butter. Not Jif creamy but creamy and it is a heck of a lot more nutritious and it tastes really really good.

    It’s best to roast your almonds. It gives more flavor and makes them softer. If you soak them you have to dry them out afterwards so you can’t make it right away. One thing I think I should’ve done is let them cool some before putting them in the blender. They warmed up sooner. That was probably a "no brainer". lol. I started off with the lowest manual setting then once I was in mid-speed, I scraped the sides and I added salt, a tiny bit of honey, and some avocado oil. Then slowly progressed up to the highest setting. The blender did start sounding really loud at that point. I don’t know if it’s because I tried many different ways that the noise eventually gave me a headache or if the highest cycle is indeed that loud. I will find out next time. :) NOTE: My Blendtec did not overheat at all during the whole entire process. I believe I scraped the sides about 5-6 times but like I said I was also trying different pre-settings as well. One last thing. It doesn’t always look like the almonds are blending but just let it go anyways. Wait about 40 secs then check it. Now that I know what to do next time it will be easy peasy! Enjoy. ;) ♥

    Audrey on

  • I just purchased the 625 model. What is the wildside jar?

    chiefpicante on

  • Why can’t I delete this comment. Weird.

    Audrey on

  • After you soak to release the enzymes you’re supposed to let them dry either using a dehydrator or oven using a low setting. If you roast your almonds for about 10 min you can let them cool for a little then make your butter. ;)

    Audrey on

  • I figured it out. :)

    Audrey on

  • This is a horrible recipe. Using raw almonds, the nuts become clumped, chalky and very hot, and it NEVER becomes "smooth and creamy." Adding a little oil, less than a teaspoon, and some salt, does wonders for the flavors, and the butter becomes smooth in far less time, and the motor doesn’t overheat. That should be explained in the recipe, not in the comments below rectifying the omission.

    dredzo on

  • I just bought the designer 625 and I want to make almond butter. I have the twister jar but my blender doesn’t show speeds or settings. It has the presets and then the slider speed control, where is speed 7 or 4? Or is there a preset that will work?

    Rod on

  • Hi Rod, you’ll want to use the button that is medium high, let it run for about 30 seconds. You should have great almond butter in the 30 seconds the machine runs. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • The WildSide jar has a fifth side for larger, faster blends. You can learn more about it here: http://www.blendtec.com/jar…

    Blendtec on

  • I use coconut oil and it works great

    Billy DeCola on

  • Ah! Thank you! I just tried it for the second time thinking I must have done something wrong before, but once again crumbly and burning hot, ruining all the goodness of the almonds I’m sure. Wish I read your comment before, but I’ll be prepared next try!

    Jennifer on

  • I made almond butter the other night, and needed a few runs to get it smooth, but that was a lot faster than when I used my food processor. I’ll try adding a bit of oil next time, because I was worried I might have hurt the blender – it had steam coming out of the jar.

    Angela on

  • Tried it four times and all I have received is thick almond mush. Ticked off!

    Trevor Lighten on

  • I received my twister jar yesterday and immediatly poured 1.5 cups raw almonds to make almond butter. After 2 cycles at speed 7, we were left with a thick hot paste, not spreadable, nor dippable. I thought about adding oil but changed my mind. I scraped it out in disappointment, but figured I could still use the chunky almond paste for something. After a few hours I went back and the almonds were cool to the touch, I decided to run them again, same cycle, speed 7 while using the twister jar. To our disbelief, it turned chunky paste into a smooth and silky almond butter.

    Tried it again, this time with a 1 1/3 cup raw almonds, 2 cycles and I achieved the perfect results.
    I did just notice how your post was 6 months ago, but hope this helps.

    Rich I on

  • i read just yesterday that to soak nuts of any kind makes them more nutrisious. so if one would soak drain off would that not make it easier to purify to make butter?

    Janice Lee Dongworth on

  • We have a standard blendtec jar, not sure what it’s called. I used a higher speed (like 10) and it successfully turned half raw, half roasted almonds into a relatively creamy butter. No oil added.

    Amy on

  • Speaking of "senior moments," I have a "senior" Blendtec I am using with the Twister Jar. It was called something like Champ HP3. The speeds are 1 to 4, so when Blendtec tells me to run at 7 I am totally lost!

    avocadess on

  • I just made a batch using about 1 1/2 cups of sliced premium Mariani almonds. I always keep these handy as they are ready to use and raw. Just roast them for a few minutes in a toaster oven and they will always be ready. I added about 1 t of coconut oil and a bit of salt. My Blendtec is from the Designer Series so the pre-sets are different. I started on the lowest setting and went up to the 3 line mark. Perfect blending and no overheating. I think the raw sliced almonds take care of a lot of those type of problems. BTW you can buy the Mariani almonds in 2 lb bags at Costco.

    Loielea on

  • I am making sesame tahini with it right now. I used 1 cup hulled seeds and 1 cup freshly roasted seeds. I can see now it might have been a better choice to keep the amount down to 1 1/2 cups. On the way the jar got so hot that I have put the sealing lid on the Twister Jar and placed it in the refrigerator and I will continue after it has cooled down. There is no harm in putting the Twister Jar in the refrigerator is there? (Note: I saw someone do the tahini without adding any oil at all and it came out totally runny and creamy and that is what I am going for!)

    avocadess on

  • I just bought a 470. Is the receipt different ? Thanks

    HK on

  • I just this moment finally completed making wonderful Almond Butter in my Twister Jar, but instead of the 50 seconds noted in the recipe, it took 6 times at speed 7 before it was creamy. "The jar gets far too hot in the process, so stopped frequently to cool it down. Probably should have waited even longer as the butter was very hot when completed. Lost some nuitrients undoubtedly….but it is wonderfully creamy and delicious!

    Karlyn Brett on

  • I just tried making almond butter in my wildside jar with my new blendtec and it overheated, the seal around the blades melted, and got black plastic all in the nut butter. I only blended it for a few minutes max and stopped in between to give it a rest and scrape down the sides. I’m so disappointed!

    ashley | bloom & nourish on

  • OMG, I totally agree with you. I am surprised at all the comments… Why should we add oil if it’s not listed in the recipe… Why should I edit a recipe? I assume Blendetc chefs tested the recipe before they posted for the public to use. I guess not… btw, Vitamix has the same problem, my Vitamix stopped 4 times from over heating and after 3 hours I just had to scoop out the un spreadable almond mass. I have both Blendtec and Vitamix, and I run into the same problems with both; both blenders are too expensive for just smoothies, but both don’s stand by what they promise to do with harder solid foods

    BlendVit on

  • Has anyone tried using a little bit of coconut oil so the butter isn’t a runny?

    Audrey on

  • …but when we go to Whole Foods and make our own almond butter in their machines, do we soak our almonds? I don’t think so… These are expensive blenders and should stand by what they promise to do. Poor performance…

    BlendVit on

  • I have a new blendtec blender with only low med high. What speed should I blend on?

    Lisa on

  • I thought I would share how I make nut butter. I soak the nuts overnight & rinse to remove enzyme inhibitors & bitterness which makes nut more digestible. Then I crisp up the nuts by dehydrating @ 105 degrees. Crispy nuts are dried but not roasted. I add 1 T coconut oil to 11/2 cut of nuts & it goes just like video demonstration, smooth creamy nut butter in 45 sec.

    Leda on

  • Perfect! I made this in my Blendtec 570 with the twister jar. I just blended up the almonds raw first on low for 20 seconds, medium for another 30, then did another cycle on high for 50 seconds. It was smooth! I did 30 more seconds on "high" (just for fun) and it was perfectly smooth and glossy!

    Georgia Petty Ferguson on

  • You should use the high speed. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • I’m not sure if it was a freak accident but I followed the exact instructions and my jar is now dead. It burnt the rubber on the blade bottom and it came off in pieces.

    Sarah on

  • I just made almond/brazil nut butter and yes it climbs the walls at first (on low speed) so you scrape a couple times. Then all of a sudden the oils escape and it blends into nut butter almost instantly. You can crank it to high then for 30 sec or so then it’s done. Sooo good too!
    PROTIP: Use about 3 cups of nuts for WildSide jar… too little won’t work well.

    crazybreadman on

  • Oh no! It shouldn’t be because of this recipe. Please give our customer service team a call at 1-800-748-5400 and they’ll help you out!

    Blendtec on

  • What jar were you using and how many almonds did you put in it?

    Blendtec on

  • I have the same type of blender (low/med/high) and I tried to make almond butter with roasted almonds, but all of the speeds were too fast. It would immediately push the almonds up the sides and the blade would run free. So I used pulse instead and stopped every few seconds to push the almonds back down. But even doing this the blender overheated many times. In the end I never got a completely smooth almond butter.

    Is it bad to push the blender to overtemp many times like that? Is there a better strategy for making almond butter that’s completely smooth without having to add extra oil?

    Melanie on

  • I hope you called them! They’ll totally replace it.

    Danielle on

  • For the last batch I made I substituted 1/4 cup sunflower seeds for almonds, just to shake up the nutrient content a bit. Very nice! Remember that sun seeds have a pretty distinctive flavor so go gently until you get the flavor blend you like.
    Re. blending difficulties: I’ve found that dry (pan) roasting the nuts and letting them cool completely yields better results than raw. And, some batches just seem drier than others, even using the same nut source. If the unit is really working too hard, add a wee bit of coconut oil or oil of your choice.

    Heather Michet on

  • I have tried three different brands of roasted almonds and I find that the Aldi unsalted roasted almonds work every time. The Costco brand and Blue Diamond brands would only turn to powder. I wonder if their almonds are drier. I ended up adding the powered almonds to the creamy Aldi almonds after I blended them and they did mix in but it took awhile. I used the Twister jar. From now on I am only going to buy the Aldi brand.

    Donna on

  • I have to blend it, put it in the freezer for 30 minutes or so to completely cool, and then I do a second round. It turns out perfectly creamy. If you don’t cool it down, it separates and turns all weird.

    Sarah on

  • Yes you don’t want to make butter with wet nuts! Dry them and yes they are more nutritious if you soak them ! Look up info on the Weston Price foundation web site they have a wealth of information about healthy food.

    Kathy Easterday on

  • Once again, not raw almonds…dry, roasted ones.

    Rick on

  • It doesn’t call for raw almonds, and I think that might be the problem. It calls for dry, roasted almonds. There will be a huge difference in the outcome.

    Rick on

  • Uh, they changed it. Look at the other comments.

    dredzo on

  • Is it necessary to add oil when making a large batch in the WildSide jar? I don’t mind stopping to move it back down. I just don’t want added oil or salt….just raw almonds.

    PghPammy on

  • Tip: if it separates, pour off the oil, add a little coconut and same maple syrup and form into "energy bites." My first attempt, I was too impatient and this happened to me. Delicious result tho!

    Alexis on

  • Hi PghPammy,
    I don’t add any extra oil to my almonds. It works really well for me.

    Rich I on

  • Thanks Rich! So 1 1/3 cup raw almond. Perfect! Because I don’t want to add oil to my nut butters.

    PghPammy on

  • Here’s a link to our Peanut Butter recipe – hope this helps! http://www.blendtec.com/rec…

    Blendtec on

  • How can we make peanut butter the same way but only use peanuts?

    Francisco on

  • Butternut I specifically do not want any added oil (or any added anything for that matter). The Twister Jar is working just fine without any added oil. I’ve made several batches since my original post, no problems at all. Now I’m finding out that the raw almonds from CA are pasteurized with either steam or gassed with PPO. So I need to find a quality source for steamed almonds or get them from another country.

    PghPammy on

  • Hey, what about just adding some oil to your nut butter?

    butternut on

  • I have a wide side jar and I tried to do almond butter but it was a thick paste, I tried to blend it a few times and the blade fell off and detached from the jar. It blender in other words fell apart and I had to throw away the product as the plastic came off and was in the almond mix. I had to return it. Not sure what I did wrong. Any ideas ?

    Barbora de Courten on

  • Just got my Twister jar and tried the almond butter. Like another comment, it got hot and dry. I added a little salt and a little honey and it was still dry and grainy. I will wait for it to cool and will try again.

    I buy almonds at Costco. We put them in the toaster oven for a few minutes so they would be "dry roasted", hoping that would make it creamy. Maybe we didn’t roast them correctly. How long should raw almonds be roasted? Thanks!

    Update: After the paste cooled, we put it back in the Twister jar and it just took a few seconds to turn smooth! So, now I’m wondering if I have to do it in two stages, or if roasting the raw almonds longer will make it possible to do the whole thing in 50 seconds, like the instructions say.

    Janet on

  • Nut butter separates the men from the boys…and my brand new blendtec 570 must still be in grade school. I incorporated all of the tips below and still after the 8th cycle bits of rubber from under the blade broke off into my almond butter. I am returning it to Costco today. All that time and labor in preparation, as well as the cost of my NUTS, and the 570 machine couldn’t cut it.

    Lee on

  • We’re so sorry! Not sure why it happened. Please give our customer service a call at 1-800-748-5400. They are trained to help troubleshoot things like this over the phone and can also get you a replacement jar if you are still under warranty.

    Blendtec on

  • what jar did u use? and what model machine?

    Lee on

  • similar situation happened with me. what was your model?

    Lee on

  • same with me. this is a recurring issue judging by the similar complaints on this chat. yet blendtec always replies, "oh wow?" like they’re surprised.

    Lee on

  • how much almonds for the mini twister jar? I am going to roast my raw almonds at 350 for about 10 min. Saw this online somewhere.

    Dianne on

  • It is totally possible in the Wildside+ Jar since I just made it 10 minutes ago in it. You’ll want to use 3 cups (plus a few more) of dry roasted almonds (if you don’t want to add any oil) Start off on a slow speed to get it going, about 20 seconds or so. Scrape down the sides if you need to, then bring it to highest speed. Scrape as necessary…repeat once more, and voila….perfect, creamy almond butter. I used salted almonds, but it still needed more salt (for my tastes) and added a half packet of Splenda for some sweetness. Tastes flippin AWESOME! :)

    Paul on

  • Start with 1 cup and see how it goes. If you think you can add more, then put another 1/4-1/2 cup in. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • The Costco brand almonds are not roasted.

  • I made this yesterday in the mini twister jar. I used l-1/4 cups roasted almonds as suggested by Blendtec. It came out perfectly. We ate it with apple slices and it was terrific! I bought a 3 lb bag of almonds at Costco and put them in the freezer. Now I can make almond butter whenever I want!

  • I have made it a zillion times in the Wildside+ jar but used roasted almonds. You can use raw (so they say) but you’ll need to add a bit of oil after the almonds have ground down a bit. If you want to keep them "raw" be sure not to blend for a long time because the mix will get warm. They won’t cook, per se, but it will be noticeably warm to hot/warm.

    Paul on

  • Has anyone made this with the Wildside jar and raw almonds?

    freedom247 on

  • For the record, do not try this with chocolate covered almonds. A) it’s too thick and will overhead the blender. B) the milk chocolate solidifies once it cools down and is useless as a butter. Makes a good snack though. Next time I’m going to try using mostly roasted with a few chocolate almonds, and perhaps add some cocoa nut oil to smooth it out.

  • I just got the Blendtec 475 can I make nut butters with it?

  • I made almond butter. I used the the Wild side jar and roasted almonds. Delicious! The process was easy. It took approx 20 minutes (only because I let butter rest for 5 mins a couple of times.)

    Dea Jay on

  • Thank you, so I can make almond butter too

    nichole on

  • Yes! You might want to check out our peanut butter recipe which gives directions for every jar: http://www.blendtec.com/rec…

    Blendtec on

  • Why does this recipe call for "roasted almonds" but the recipe for plain almond butter calls for "DRY roasted almonds"?

    John on

  • Absolutely!

    Blendtec on

  • They are the same thing. :)

    Blendtec on

  • Ihave the "Mini". Do I make the almond or nut butter with half the receipt ??

    Dori umlauf on

  • After giving up the first few times I attempted this, I finally made almond butter, but it took a lot longer than one cycle shown in this video. It took NINE 50-second cycles in the twister jar for me. And the finished product was piping hot. I was scared my blender was going to overheat! But it didn’t, and the almond butter was super tasty. YUM!

    Marjorie@APinchOfHealthy on

  • "Overload" after three seconds. Every time. My Cuisinart can do it, but the Blendtec isn’t up to the job…

    Matt Shepherd on

  • Yep!

    Blendtec on

  • Does this nut butter have to be refrigerated?

    Terri on

  • What jar are you using? And are the almonds dry roasted?

    Blendtec on

  • I tried with raw, soaked almonds and did not succeed. So I added water and made almond milk instead. Is there a way to use soaked raw nuts, as they are better for you when soaked .. (and I don’t have a Twister Jar, either)

    Shay Stockdill on

  • I recently bought a Blendtec with the Wild Side+ jar and the Twister Jar after owning a VitaMix for 15+ years. For me, the true test was going to be making almond butter. My VitaMix seemed to take so long to get it smooth and I was having to add oil to it. I just made my first almond butter in the Twister Jar and it took less than a minute. Nice and smooth with no added oil. I started by roasting my organic raw almonds in the oven. After they cooled, I threw them in Twister Jar and out came delicious, creamy almond butter. I have to admit that I kind of wanted to dislike my Blendtec because I felt disloyal to VitaMix. But now, I am loving it.

    Kathy Tyler on

  • I have made almond butter numerous times (about 3 years) in my big blender top (is that the Wild Side "jar"-looks more like a regular blender top to me) adding (organic) toasted/salted almonds (10 oz) then 1/3 as much roasted unsalted (organic) cashews. I blend on speed 1 for a full cycle and I push down the nuts as they climb to the top. Then after this cycle is done, I scrape and stir it a bit, then blend on 5 for as many times as is needed to get a smooth butter. Sometimes this takes 4-5 times. I mix and scrape it down after each cycle. I add a small bit (maybe a teaspoon) of non tasting oil if it appears to need a boost but more than likely doesn’t. I love it and it saves so much money. It’s creamy and smooth with never any oil separation.
    My husband talked me into making almond butter since the recipe book only recommended peanut butter and almonds are a lot harder. Glad I did it.

  • You’ll want to use the manual speed controls for this one. Use a Medium-High speed. If you’re not sure how, let us know which model you have as it’s different on each model.

    Blendtec on

  • Which one. — smoothie, dip, or ? I don’t have 1-9 buttons. Just names.

    Organically couple on

  • I agree totally. I have a Blendtec and was told it was my fault the jar became leaky because I was making bliss balls using Medjool dates in it. Blending the almonds first than adding a handful of pitted medjool dates.

    Satch on

  • how long will the almond butter stay fresh if stored in the fridge?

    Ashley Danielle on

  • Just made almond butter for the first time with raw almonds. I added almond oil and blended until I got the texture I wanted. Turned out amazing. I only have the wide side jar so had to scrape it occasionally. It took more time but wasn’t a big deal.

    Debbie R on

  • Hi folks. I just bought a blendtec 575 model. I made this recipe as described, and now have a broken gasket in the bottom of the jar under the blade. I am left with 1 jar of delicious almond butter that cost me $400. I am not a happy customer.

    Charles Brand on

  • It’ll be good for about 2-3 weeks in the fridge. You can also freeze it if you want it to last longer!

    Blendtec on

  • So sorry! That shouldn’t happen. Please give our customer service team a call at 1-800-748-5400 and they’ll take care of you.

    Blendtec on

  • give them a call, they will warranty it. Or if you just bought it, try taking it back to the store you bought it at (if brick and mortar type) and exchange it. Mine just crapped out and I have a 675, but it’s 2 years old, have to call the 800 number myself

    Paul on

  • What is a twister jar? Or for that matter a wild side jar?

    Squooze on

  • Wait, are you using raw or roasted almonds?

    AnonymityBreedsContempt on

  • They are two of our jars that can be used on any of our blender models. The Twister jar is ideal for smaller, thicker blends. You can learn more about it here: http://www.blendtec.com/jar… The WildSide+ jar is a little bigger than our FourSide jar and has a fifth side. Learn more here: http://www.blendtec.com/jar… Hope this helps!

    Blendtec on

  • You may need to roast the raw almonds in a pan or a toaster/normal oven to get the almond butter result. I’ve only used roasted and had success everytime, but I’ve seen people have fails with raw. Just a little help :)

    Paul on

  • Just raw almonds.

    PghPammy on

  • I first made almond butter in the twister jar with raw almonds. The jar got very hot and started smoking. I tossed contents in the trash. I then followed Blendtec’s directions and used roasted almonds and got the most amazing and delicious almond butter I’ve ever tasted. And in less than a minute. I added a tiny bit of salt after it was creamy but just to taste. No oil needed. Yum!!!

    Karen on

  • I should have added, I also don’t add any extra oil..just almonds, extra salt, and cinnamon, and done :)

    Paul on

  • This isn’t working for me at all. I’m blending and blending and scraping and scraping and blending…. just a bunch of ground up almonds so far ;)

    navylife on

  • try adding some cinnamon next time…OMG awesome!! :)

    Paul on

  • i added water which ruined it. lesson learned


  • You’ll want to half the recipe, so 3/4 cup. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • I have the mini-twister jar. How much almonds should I use for the reduced capacity?

    Jerry on

  • Um…this may seem a bit anal, but I pop my almonds out of their skins (doesn’t really take long…while waiting for the coffee to brew, doing my oil pulling or watching a video) before making my almond milk. I haven’t made almond butter yet, so is there an advantage to skinning them, or should I just soak, dry, roast and blend? Thanks!

    Sandra on

  • Never use Canola oil. If you research it well, you will learn it is an oil made from the rapeseed plant which is highly toxic to humans.

    curiousitydog on

  • I tried this last night with my new Twister jar, but even on low the almonds kept climbing the walls and stopped blending. The bag I bought at the story said they were "dry roasted", could it be they still needed some oil?

    Rambie on

  • Check out www.greensmoothiegirl.com. She does a yearly group buy which includes raw almonds.
