    cups almonds (skin on)
  • 116
    teaspoon salt
  • 2

  • For Cinnamon Almond Butter
  • 12
    teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Heat a skillet over medium heat.
  • Meanwhile place almonds in a food processor and chop finely.
  • Place almond pieces in the skillet and dry toast for about 5 minutes. The almonds should smell roasty and have a slightly golden brown colour.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  • Place almonds, oil and salt in a food processor and process into a thick paste. You can also use an immersion blender for this.
  • If you like your almond butter less thick, just add a little more oil or water until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Now add in the flavourings of your choice. Mix them in well with a spoon.
  • Enjoy!
