Homemade Almond butter with flax

Homemade Almond butter with flax

Introduction

Almond butter is so expensive so I decided to make my own. I like to add flax for extra nutrition. You could also add honey if you prefer a sweeter butter or salt if you like to. I prefer it natural myself. This particular recipe doesn't make a whole lot, so you can always double or triple. Also, you can add more olive oil if too dry.
