Recipe type: Snack, Nut Butter
Ingredients
  • 1 lb raw almonds
  • ¼ cup of maple syrup
  • ⅛ teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tsp. canola or coconut oil (or any neutral oil) - optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
  2. Spread the raw almonds evenly on a jellyroll pan or rimmed cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Once the almonds have cooled completely (you will hear snaps, crackles and pops coming from your kitchen - don't be alarmed as I was. It's just the almonds doing their thing) pour the almonds into the bowl of your food processor.
  4. Process the almonds for roughly 15-20 minutes, taking care to stop and scrape down the bowl occasionally. I also like to give my food processor 5 minute breaks every once in a while to prevent it from getting over heated. (I've already burned up one food processor motor from making nut butter, so i'd rather not doing it again if I can help it)
  5. Right before the almond butter reaches your desired consistency, add the salt and maple syrup. DO NOT add prematurely, or else the grinding process will take twice as long. Feel free to add a bit of neutral oil if you prefer a creamier texture.
