Description

Roasted almonds are blended together with maple sugar, cinnamon and a touch of coconut oil and salt to make a smooth, creamy spread. So naturally good, and good for you, you’ll want to eat it with a spoon.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Whole, Raw Almonds
  • ¼ cups Pure Maple Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
  • ¼ teaspoons Sea Salt, Up To Double The Amount, To Taste

Preparation

Cooking time includes processing time.

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat, if desired. Scatter almonds evenly across baking sheet. Roast for 7 minutes; stir to redistribute almonds. Continue to roast an additional 5–7 minutes until the almonds are lightly toasted.

Remove almonds from oven and allow to cool on pan for about 5 minutes. While almonds are still warm, place in bowl of food processor. Remove plunger or food pusher from small central tube in lid. This will allow steam and moisture to escape during processing. Process for 1–2 minutes until almonds are broken down and take on a mealy appearance. Stop food processor, remove lid and scrape down sides of processing bowl.

Snap processor lid in place and continue processing almonds until smooth and loosely creamy. This may take up to 15 minutes (or longer in some machines). Stop food processor as necessary to scrape down sides of processing bowl. During processing, almonds will go through several stages, including a point where most of almond butter will come together into a ball. Please note: The food processor may become unstable during this stage and “walk” across countertop. Simply hold it in place with your hands. The ball stage precedes the smoothing out stage where almonds become a smooth almond butter.

When almond butter has reached desired consistency (see notes), stop food processor. Add remaining ingredients and process for 30 seconds ro 1 minute until well combined. Store, covered, in a glass jar in a cool, dry place for up to 1 month or in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.

Notes:
1. Be attentive when roasting almonds. They can easily burn in the later stage of roasting. Be sure to check them at the 12-minute mark; they may be ready at that time or it could take up to 15 minutes.
2. When processing, after the ball stage, almond butter will smooth out. Initially it will be thick. Continued processing will cause almond butter to thin out until it becomes the consistency of honey. The processing can be stopped at any point after the ball stage, depending on personal texture preferences.
