Easy Homemade Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter


Easy Homemade Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter

 

I had been avoiding making my own almond butter for a while…… UNTIL NOW! Why did I wait so long to finally attempt this when almond butter is one of my all time favorite snacks?? Well I’ll tell ya… I was a little terrified! I knew the concept was easy… basically just blending up almonds… but something that sounds that easy usually has some catch.

Well take it from me.. there really is no catch!! Don’t be like me and wait any longer to make this easy jar of deliciousness. Making almond butter is as easy as it sounds and SO worth it, both health-wise and money-wise. It blows my mind what they charge these days for a little jar of almond butter. And don’t even get me started on all the extra and unnecessary ingredients you will find in store bought almond butter. Go to the store and look at the jars on the shelves. I bet you 90% of the almond butters will have added sugar. Especially if you’re going to buy a flavored almond butter, I guarentee there will be loads of added sugar and chemicals.

Ingredients
Servings: cups
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Roast nuts for 10 minutes until they start to brown. Let nuts cool.
  2. Blend nuts only in a high speed blender or food processor (a VitaMix worked great) for 5-10 minutes until a creamy mixture forms. Be patient, at first the nuts will grind up, and as you continue to blend, their natural oils will release and it will get creamy. Frequently scrape down the sides of the blender while blending.
  3. Once mixture is creamy, add in the rest of the ingredients except the raisins and blend for a couple more minutes so flavors are well incorporated.
  4. Add in the raisins and pulse the blender a few times to mix into the almond butter.
