Homemade Cinnamon Almond Butter

This recipe is so easy and yummy!  Plus it is much tastier and healthier than store-bought almond butters, which often contain unwanted added sugars and chemicals.  To make my version, you will only need 2 ingredients: Almonds and Cinnamon.

Here’s how to make your own Cinnamon Almond Butter at home!

You’ll need….

  1. 4 cups roasted, unsalted almonds
  2. 2 shakes cinnamon

Place all 4 cups of the almonds in a food processor.  Process for about a minute, then scrape down the sides and continue processing for another 2 minutes or so.  Add the cinnamon and process until your almond butter reaches the desired consistency. Voila!  You have your own healthy, delicious almond butter to now enjoy!

I stored mine in the fridge in a mason jar in order to maintain its freshness for the longest time possible!

Eat in on a rice cake like me with cinnamon, organic strawberries, and naturally sweetened jelly or dip your celery in this almond butter for a great snack!  The options are endless.  You could even add vanilla extract, maple syrup, or honey to your almond butter for new, delicious flavors!

Fun Foodie Fact:  Almonds are some of the only nuts that alkalize the body, which is important because it helps balance the pH levels in the body and avoid osteoporosis, poor immune function, and low energy.
