Cinnamon Roasted Almond Butter
March 05, 2014 | Makes 1 Jar
- 1 & 1/2 Cups of Almonds (225g)
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
After endless bowls of oats topped with cinnamon and a big dollop of almond butter I decided to combine the flavours. They’re probably my two most favourite things and I put both on everything so it was an obvious match made in heaven. Apart from the cinnamon and vanilla, there’s just almonds in here so it’s full of healthy fats, Vitamin E, potassium and magnesium – the perfect healthy snack! It’s amazing by the spoonful or in smoothies too.
Dry roast the almonds for about 8-10 minutes at 180’C.
Put them straight from the oven into the food processor and blend on high until the oils start to release and the mixture comes together. I use a Vitamix and mine took about 3 minutes but with a less powerful blade it can take a lot longer. If it’s not happening, be patient, it will! You’ll have to scrape down the sides frequently to make sure it’s blending evenly.
When it’s almost as smooth as you’d like it, add the cinnamon and vanilla. I also add a pinch of coarse salt.
Blitz the whole thing for about another minute to get it nice and smooth. Done!
Store in an airtight container in the cupboard.
