Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Butter

Homemade Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Butter

Nut butters are hands down, the easiest, most fun things to make. Many people I talk to like to refer to me as some sort of Susie-Homemaker for making my own almond butter, but I just think it tastes the best when you make it yourself!

Now, normally, I take the time to buy the raw almonds and roast them myself (at 350 for about 8 minutes), but this time the already roasted almonds were on sale, so I skipped a step. But always, always, always buy unsalted. YOU DON’T NEED THE SALT.

Once your almonds are roasted (or purchased), throw them in the food processor, turn it on, and wait for it to look like this. Almost done…just add 2 very simple ingredients. A few shakes of cinnamon and about a teaspoon of vanilla. Take the almond butter for a whirl to incorporate and add more if you feel the need.
