  • 2 cups almonds peels on
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons almond oil or peanut oil or olive oil (not virgin or extra virgin varieties)
  • 1 tablespoon honey or other natural sweetener such as maple syrup or agave nectar (optional)
  • 1 cup fruit-sweetened preserves of choice jam or jelly, homemade or store-bought


  • Toast the almonds in a medium-sized skillet or heavy bottom saute pan over medium heat for 5 minutes or until fragrant, stirring constantly.
  • Add the warm nuts, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1 tablespoon of the oil to a food processor or blender and puree on high speed for one to two minutes. Add more oil if necessary to achieve a smooth consistency. Taste and add more salt and the sweetener if using. Puree for 30 seconds more to combine.
  • Spoon one layer of almond butter into containers or jars, and spread, followed by a spoonful of jelly and spread, repeating to form layers. Refrigerate for up to 3 weeks. This recipe makes about 3 cups.

    1. Dawn, The flavor of olive oil is more assertive. Also olive oil can turn bitter when blending. That said you can still try it just testing a very small amount.

    1. Hi Paula,

      In place of 1-1/2 tablespoons almond, peanut, or olive oil? Yes, that would work. I would recommend it be softened first. 🙂

  1. Do you use store bought jam in this recipe and if so what brand? My points calculation came out higher than yours using the jam I had. Thank you!

    1. Jessica, When we buy commercially made jams, we always make sure there is no added sugar. I often buy locally made jams from a Mennonite Market.
