Yummy Almond Butter With 3 Variations

Yummy Almond Butter With 3 Variations created by IngridH

My sis and me made Sharon's wonderful Recipe #172631 and liked it so much that we were inspired to come up with our own variations. We created a cocoa vanilla one, a vanilla and a cinnamon one. They are so yummy and taste kinda like candy only healthier. If you have a sweet tooth feel free to add in a ts or so of your favourite sweetener. The basic almond butter is different from Sharons in that is uses a little less oil and salt and a different method of preparation.

Ready In:

Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 13 cups almonds (skin on)
  • 116 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil (a neutral one like sunflower or salad)
  • For Vanilla Cocoa Almond Butter

  • 12 teaspoon cocoa powder (unsweetened, good quality)
  • 38 teaspoon ground vanilla bean
  • For Vanilla Almond Butter

  • 38 teaspoon ground vanilla bean
  • For Cinnamon Almond Butter

  • 12 teaspoon ground cinnamon

directions

  • 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!

    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 ~
