Home me for a long weekend. Refreshed and hungry for homemade goodness, starting with roasted almond butter. While store-bought products are convenient, the process of making something from scratch makes it seem much more valuable. With each bite, I remember the enticing scent of the nuts roasting in the oven as I waited impatiently. Yummmm. The small labors are worth it. While I would hardly call something as simple as almond butter a “recipe,” I’ve included my process below. My favorite way to eat this delicious and nutritious yummyness is atop oats with fresh berries and cinnamon.
2-3 cups almonds
1 T honey (optional)
1/2 t sea salt
1 t coconut oil, melted
Roast almonds in a 350 degree oven for about ten minutes, then remove and let cool completely.
Place almonds in a food processor with an S-blade and process until completely smooth. (About 5-10 minutes. Yes, minutes.) Scrape down sides as needed.
Add sea salt, coconut oil, honey, and any other add-ins and process until incorporated.
Scoop almond butter into a mason jar and store in the fridge for optimal freshness.
