Chia Almond Butter

Chia almond butter


2 tablespoons chia seeds
1- ½ tablespoons peanut oil or other good quality oil chia almond butter
1- ½ tablespoons honey
2 cups raw almonds


Place all ingredients into a food processor, ( I use a magic bullet). Blend on
high until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Transfer to a clean container and store in the fridge.

This is a highly nutritious and very tasty spread, and a good way to get your daily quota of chia seeds.

You can use less honey or even omit it altogether if you prefer.

    I have friends who have gletun and dairy allergies, and I have tried doing gletun free baking before using rice flour and others things, and nothing turned out to my liking. These, however, are AMAZING. Almond flour is my new go-to gletun free! And, I made them dairy-free by subbing coconut oil for the butter-delicious! Thanks for sharing.

    I make my own almond butter all the time, I like to add 85%+ cacao to make chocolate almond butter. I will try with the chia seeds this week!
    I use a food processor and I found that using almond milk works best instead of oil or honey. I’ve tried both and neither worked well for me

      I find that many people have their own version of almond butter. Your chocolate almond butter sounds delicious. Let me know how you go using chia seeds Amanda.

    Hi. Thank you for your wonderful sight! I am enjoying using the Chia seed recipes. I tried to make this Almond butter but failed. I blended a long time but it was heating up a lot. I have now been told to soak the almonds first so I will try again.

      Hi Rae. Thanks for the feedback. I have no trouble with this recipe using a “magic bullet” to blend. See the link in the previous comment to get a good overview of making almond butter. Let me know if soaking the almonds first makes it easier.

    I just tried this recipe out with grapeseed oil and I had to put in tons tons tons of oil to get it to blend in a nutri-bullet, (super powered magic bullet). You should mention the things about blending dry because you specifically say to do what doesn’t work.

    Other than that I really enjoyed it 🙂

      Hi Jeff. I promise you, it does work without adding tons of oil. Try blending longer if you make it again. Here’s a way to make almond butter without adding any oil although it may not work in a magic bullet or a nutri-bullet.

  5. Does not work – does not blend properly in premium blender

      I have made a couple of batches since I received your comment Martin. I have no trouble with this recipe coming together, and I use the “magic bullet.” I have found it comes together quicker and more easily when you process the chia seeds and the raw almonds together using a grinder attachment until the mixture gets wet and clumps together. This mixture should be very fine in texture. Then the oil (last time I used coconut oil) can be added and finally the honey. Sometimes I leave the honey out. Traditional home made almond butter is made using just raw almonds and it can take up to 15 minutes in a food processor to turn into a creamy spread. I like my version because it is much quicker.
