Almond Butterby Rory
This is our favorite almond butter recipe. Give it a try on toast, sandwhiches, and in place of peanut butter.
Preheat oven to 325°F.
In a mixing bowl, combine almonds, melted coconut oil, and spices. Toss lightly to insure the nuts are evenly coated with the spice blend.
Spread spiced almonds in an even layer on a jelly roll pan. Bake for 9 minutes, stir, and bake an additional 6 minutes. Remove sheet pan from oven and allow nuts to cool 15-20 minutes.
Place cooled almonds in a food processor or blender and process for a full 2 minutes. Scrape the sides of the container, and process another 3-5 minutes, or until the nut butter reaches the desired texture.
Store in a refrigerated, air-tight container for up to several weeks.
