I am a huge fan of peanut butter, but unfortunately my husband is allergic to nuts. I try not to eat nuts around him because even the smell bothers him. I found this out when we were dating and I made peanut butter cookies. He said it would be fine but he was just being nice. He walked around the house with his shirt over his face and opened all of the windows. Oops! 

Luckily, almonds don’t seem to bug him. He can’t eat them, but he can be around them. So I have become an almond butter addict. I love the stuff. So when I saw Brittany’s (TK member Eating Bird Food) recipe for Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter I knew I had to try it.

There are only four ingredients needed to make this delicious almond butter: almonds, cinnamon, raisins, and vanilla. Anyone can make this recipe, it is almost too easy!

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove the almonds from the oven and let cool for about 20 minutes.

I spread the cinnamon raisin almond butter on a piece of whole wheat toast. I think this is my new favorite breakfast. The almond butter is not overly sweet and spreads easily. It would also make a great almond butter sandwich, be good on apple slices, or stirred into oatmeal. It is also good eaten by the spoon—trust me, I know. I’m going to make several batches during the holidays to give away as gifts. Fill a jar with cinnamon raisin almond butter and tie a festive ribbon around the top and you are set! Who wouldn’t love a jar of homemade almond butter?

I wanted to try this. I did try this. Mine did NOT turn out like that. I kept my machine going and going and the oils never made it creamy. It was just goo like…but not creamy goo like. I couldn’t spread the mixture at all. What did I do wrong?

I have to agree with TwoGirlsPatterns … “YUMMALUMMA!”

Definitely.

And so sad that Josh has to miss out on something so scrumptious. : (

Hi Maria, Thank you so much for featuring my recipe in such a beautiful way. I’m glad you’re enjoying it and I think the idea of giving it as a gift is perfect!

Sharon on 6.17.2011

Exactly how much does this recipe make? Enough to fill a pint jar? jelly jar?

Maria on 6.17.2011

It will keep in the refrigerator for about a month. To get the creamy texture, make sure you process it well. The oils will not separate. I still like to give it a good stir before using since I store it in the refrigerator.
