Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter

on October 5, 2012

If you are on edge about the nut butter recalls going on, here is the great DIY recipe for Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter that has the added healthful bonus of flax, chia, and hemp seeds!!  It is easy to make and you can make sandwiches at ease, knowing that the nut butter used is safe!

Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter

2 cup raw almonds
2 tbsp whole flax seeds
2 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
3 tbsp pure maple syrup (if your little ones do not like maple flavor, you can also use honey or agave nectar)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste
1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 300F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a non-stick mat. In a large bowl, mix together the almonds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and maple syrup. Spread out almond mixture onto baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, stirring once half way through.

2. Remove from oven and allow the almond mixture to cool for a few minutes before placing into a food processor. Process for about 10 minutes, stopping to scrape the bowl every 30-60 seconds as needed. The mixture will be very drippy and smooth when ready. Add in the vanilla, salt, and cinnamon and process until mixed well.

3. Remove the almond butter from the processor. If you’d like crunchy almond butter, add some almonds about 1/2 cup into the (now empty) processor and process until chunky. Stir the chunky almonds into the almond butter.
