Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

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.
