Almond Date Butter

Recipes Ingredients

  • 2 cups shelled, skinless, unroasted, Ziyad Brand almonds (you can also use skin on whole almonds but nut butter will be darker)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp Ziyad Brand Date Syrup or more to taste
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil divided
  • ¼ tsp ground Ziyad Brand Cardamom


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread almonds in one layer on a cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.

Step 2

Let your nuts cool completely.

Step 3

Add the almonds to a food processor. Let it run for 4-5 minutes. During this time, you’ll see the almonds go in stages from crumbs to a dry ball to a smooth and creamy butter. Scrape down sides of bowl when necessary to make sure nut butter is well incorporated.

Step 4

Stir in the 4 tbsp of coconut oil.

Step 5

Add in the 2 tbsp of Date Syrup, cardamom and a pinch of salt, if desired. Blend for 5-10 minutes until smooth and creamy.

Step 6

Turn the food processor off and let it stand for a few minutes to cool (the food processor could heat up from this process).

Step 7

Scrape the sides and the bottom of the bowl.

Step 8

Add the remaining 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Process until smooth, about 2 more minutes.
