i finally made my own nut butter and it turned out amazingly. so buttery, so smooth, lightly sweetened and fragrant with the scents of vanilla and cinnamon.
and SO easy!
i started with 1 cup of dry roasted unsalted almonds.
put it in the food processor.
process for about 5 minutes (nuts will get crumbly, but you’ve still got a while before they get buttery)
add scant 1/2 tsp salt. process about 5 more minutes.
add 1 tsp (or a little more, depending on your taste) of maple syrup, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
process more. eventually the nut crumbles will get smoother and start to clump together. ALMOST THERE!!!!
when fully butter-ized, scrape out of processor (with your mouth… no… just kidding!) into a jar or tupperware.
congratulations to me. i just made my first batch of nut butter. and it tastes like heaven.
here’s what i ate for lunch beforehand-
yay for eating in! this whole meal took me about 10 minutes to make.. and only cost about $1.50!
how’s your day going? did you make your lunch, or did you succumb to the take-out demons?
