If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I’m a huge fan of almond butter. When I was diagnosed with an intolerance to peanuts, I was devastated. How could I live without my beloved peanut butter?!
That’s when I tried almond butter. And, I fell in love instantly. I was in heaven when I found huge jars of MaraNatha almond butter at Costco for cheap! The reason I love that brand is because the only ingredient is almonds. There is no salt or sugar like many nut butters.
Even though I can buy almond butter for cheap, I wanted to try making my own version. I mean, how hard could it be? It’s just almonds. And a food processor.
I was right, it is EASY to make. You’ve got to love a recipe with only 1 ingredient!
If you want to make a different flavour of almond butter, then you can add the following to the basic almond butter recipe:
- For maple-cinnamon almond butter – toss almonds in 3 Tbsp maple syrup before roasting. Once done roasting, place in food processor and add 1 tsp ground cinnamon, a pinch of sea salt, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Blend.
- For chocolate almond butter – blend almonds in food processor until they have turned into almond butter. Add 1/3 cup melted dark chocolate chips, a pinch of sea salt and blend together.
Maybe you’ll even think of other flavours to try. If so, please let me know as I would love to try them!
