It might need to be blanched, because the little brown specks from the skin bother some people.

Just curious to those who eat almond butter, I have a hard time with peanut butter (creamy) it seems to upset me some. Do you think the almond butter would be easier on the system? Thanks!

Nanners, they say that peanut butter (and cashew butter) are quite a bit harder to digest than almond or pecan butter (pecan being the easiest). Personally, I prefer the almond butter just because I can buy it rather than making my own :-). Pecan butter has a sweeter taste though, and is fantastic in baked goods.

Rider, here is a brand of blanched almond butter, but it's pretty dang expensive: http://www.digestivewellness.com/itempage-1210-24-32-1677.html . If you have the ambition, you could probably buy some blanched slivered almonds from the bulk bin and process it yourself.

The little skin pieces in the regular might not bother you though, I guess it's just one of those things you have to try and see what happens.

I make almond butter at work. It's actually very simple to make you can do it yourself.  Buy slivered almonds from the store in the produce section or baking wherever it is. Lightly coat them in olive oil, salt (if you want), then roast them at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or until they are a golden color.  Let them cool completely, and throw them in a food processer.  Add olive oil as
needed to get a creamy texture. Simple!!  It will stay fresh for 3 weeks, and does NOT need to be refridgerated, but if you do chill it, the self life is around 4 weeks.
 
Same goes for all nut butters, I'll never again waste my money on jiffy pb.  Its so simple to make your own, and it doesn't have all the nasty crap others do.

even a small coffee grinder would do the job well if your using small amounts.
