Maple Almond Butter Recipe
This homemade maple almond butter is so much better than store bought! I roast the almonds in maple syrup, which gives the butter a really rich flavor. I then stir in cinnamon and vanilla which adds so much warmth! Did I mention it’s easy to make, vegan, and gluten free?
Servings: 16 people
- 2 cups almonds
- 1/4 cup real maple syrup not pancake syrup
- 3 teaspoons coconut oil divided
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Place almonds on a baking sheet and toss with maple syrup and two teaspoons of coconut oil.
Roast for about 25-30 minutes, stirring half way through.
Let cool for 10 minutes.
Place roasted almonds into food processor and process until smooth. You’ll need to stop and scrape down the sides. This should take about 5 minutes.
Once creamy, add in vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and another 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and process until well combined.
This should be stored in the fridge.
DOG NOTE: It's best for your furry friend (if that's who you're making this for) to cut the oil, vanilla, and salt in half and to eliminate the maple syrup.
