If you don’t like eat-it-by-the-spoonful it’s so good almond butter, stop reading right here!
Seriously, this almond butter is that good. Kevin have caught me a couple times standing with the fridge door wide open and a spoon in my hand eating this almond butter. Oh, and it’s pretty much incredible on my toasted Grain Free Bread!
I choose roasted almonds for this recipe because there is more depth of flavour in a roasted almond. I far prefer them to raw almonds. This recipe will work with raw almonds as well.
Ps. If you’ve got an Actifry like us, use that to roast your almonds! Throw them in the dish and turn it on for 12 minutes and walk away! Come back to perfectly roasted almonds 🙂
Roasted Almond Butter
- 2 cups almonds fresh roasted
- scrapings from 1 vanilla bean
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp Himylayan salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp coconut oil
Add almonds to food processor and blend process for a while (like ~15 minutes). The almonds will go from a meal, to a flour, to a paste and finally start to release their oils and make a butter.
Once the almonds reach the butter consistency, add the remaining ingredients and process until your butter is smooth and creamy.
Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
