almond butter

Here is how I did it:

Ingredients = raw almonds + coarse salt  [+ olive oil (optional)]

Spread 1 cup almonds on a baking sheet.  Bake 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Your house will smell amazing.

Using a food processor (I tried using a blender and it did not work) process the roasted almonds. Add a pinch of salt and mix for 5-10 minutes until the mixture turns creamy. You can add up to 2 tablespoons of olive oil to speed up the process if you would like.

Use as a dip for fruit (apples & bananas work great) and in place of peanut butter. 
Store in an air tight container.
