DIY Roasted Almond Butter has a deep, roasted flavor, with mild cinnamon and maple syrup undertones.
Serves: About 14
  • 3 cups raw, whole almonds
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the almonds on a large, rimmed baking sheet in an even layer. Bake for 10-12 minutes, stirring once halfway through. The almonds will be fragrant when they're done. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. Place the almonds in a food processor. Be warned, it takes close to 10 minutes for the almonds to turn "buttery". Scrape down the sides often. Once the almonds resemble nut butter, add the maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt. Pulse to combine. Add the canola oil, and pulse to combine once more. Stir in more oil if you prefer! Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
This almond butter is completely customizable. Add more cinnamon, honey instead of maple syrup, maybe even cocoa powder? The list goes on.
