Method

Put the almonds in a food processor and blitz on high speed until finely chopped and the nuts have come together to form a thick ball. With the processor still running, add the oil, 1 tsp at a time, until the mixture is a smooth, glossy paste – about 7 mins. Spoon into a clean jar, and keep tightly closed and refrigerated when not in use. Will keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

I used 259 grams of whole almonds ( with skins ) a good grinding of sea salt and 4 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil, which has added health benefits over olive oil, which is in itself a good choice. It seemed a bit thin when making it but off course coconut oil is semi solid at room temperature so solidifies quite hard in the fridge.

I agree with the first post - I used 200g of flaked almonds (2 packs) tried with 2 tsp of mild olive oil but it had a consistency of unbaked crumble. Added more, about 2tbs in all, and then had a 'dry' version of peanut butter, spreadable with a lovely mild nutty flavour that didn't stick to the roof of your mouth like 'claggy' peanut butter.

This is the one recipe of the Summer Diet Plan so far that has been a complete let-down, sad because the rest is so good! It needed far more oil than suggested and is still very dry and not spreadable, despite tasting good.

2 tsp is not nearly enough to make this almond butter, looked more like breadcrumbs- ended putting in lots more olive oil- not sure what it's going to taste like yet though!!
