Cinnamon Almond Butter

Making your own almond (or any nut) butter is really easy, but it takes a little bit of patience, a little bit of love, and a great food processor.

Ingredients:

  • 24 oz almonds
  • 1.5 c. canola oil
  • 1/2 c. honey (liquified, 20 seconds in microwave)
  • 3 Tbs. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • dash salt

Method:

Add almonds to a food processor, and switch on to high, scraping / shaking down the sides periodically when mix climbs up.

At  about 7 minutes into processing, add 1/2 c. canola oil mix for 1 minute and turn off the processor. Add another 1/2 c. oil, the cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, vanilla and dash of salt. Continue to process, and drizzle in remaining 1/2 c. of oil slowly for another 7-8 minutes, or until mixture reaches desired creamy texture*.

*For an even creamier texture, continue to process and add oil until your ideal texture is achieved.
