Almond butter

Almond butter is becoming increasingly popular, so much so that it is almost as famous as its cousin, peanut butter. Although in Spain there are many brands that offer delicious almond butter, when I have time I always prefer to make it myself since it is very easy and is cheaper.

I hope you like it!
