Delicious! and economical as well. This amount of almond butter would cost $10 to $12 in the store with no added flavors. Not only is making it less costly but I have to honestly say that this tastes much better than store bought, you get a fresh almond flavor here. I combined vanilla and cinnamon and used no salt. This will be made many times over without doubt.

Wonderful flavors! The roasting of the almonds combine with the cinnamon makes for a spread that has ten times the flavor over the commercial almond butters with an added bonuses of no add sugar. Thanks so much for the post.

So good! I did cheat a bit and used really high quality roasted almonds, so I skipped the toasting step out of laziness. Blended with a grape seed oil, which is fairly neutral and I like the taste, and then I went off the recipe a bit... Let this blend, having to add about a half a teaspoon more oil to get it the consistency I wanted, then with the processor running I added sugar free chocolate chips and about a tablespoon of sugar free "honey" (maltitol syrup) which doesn't taste much like honey but does add a bit of honey flavor when it's in things. The heat from the mixing melted the chips right in and it all blended up beautifully. It tastes so good I literally licked it off the spatula like my kids do cake batter! I can't wait for this to set up to go on low carb toast later. Thanks for sharing. I'll try it with agave to cut back on the artificial stuff next time.

Good stuff! I think I'll skip buying peanut butter, since I can whip this up so fast, and I know what's in it! I made the cinnamon version- it'll be great on the apples and bananas I plan to buy later today. I needed more oil than called for to get the consistency that I wanted, but no problem as I had plenty on hand. Like other reviewers, I added a bit of honey- about 1/2 teaspoon, which added just a touch of sweetness but didn't make it taste like candy.

This is tasty stuff. I used sea salt & unrefined sunflower oil which I do not consider neutral but I chose it over deathly canola. I used a coffee grinder/spice mill it was still powdery so I added quite a bit more unrefined sunflower oil, then water, mine was still a paste. I tried with cinnamon which I think I liked the best, then added alcohol free vanilla from the health food store. I also tried with carob powder but it didn't work too well. After I added a little raw, organic, local honey to it for as Mindelicious said "extra happiness". Enjoyed with organic bananas. Made for Veggie Swap 38 ~ September ~

I really love this recipe. I doubled the original ingredients so I can make two versions. I made both the original and the cinnamon variation, and both are very good, though I do like the cinnamon version better. and both refrigerate very well, as I still have both of them, and neither have gone bad.

LOVED this idea!! I made all three which my new vitamix made into an easy task :) I did use some agave to sweeten them up for extra happiness and I also used a bit more cocoa because mine was not good quality. I served them on apple slices and they were like little healthy candy bars!! I think our favorite was the cocoa vanilla but the cinnamon was definitely delicious on the apples. Thanks for a great treat Lalaloula!!! Made for Veg*n Swap 26!!
