Homemade Almond Butter

Every other week, Nikita heads to the kitchen to test out recipes we think the mang’Oh community will love. As a twist on the usual healthy fare, our recipes are usually sweet treats that incorporate an abundance of fruits, veggies, whole grains and nuts. We believe that “real food” treats eaten in moderation can add some fun and variation to a healthy, plant-based diet. We hope you’ll try them out and let us know what you think!

Ingredients

200g ( 2 packets) Raw whole almonds
1-2 teaspoons of salt (to taste)
Optional: 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Add the almonds to a food processor
  2. Pulse until a paste starts to form. Scrape down the sides.
  3. Continue to step number 2 until it is turns into the constancy of peanut butter
  4. Add your salt/ cinnamon to taste

NB: the process can take up to 20 minutes but it is definitely worth it.
