Several months ago I picked up these:
I super loved them for about 10 minutes and then I never touched them again.
Today, as I was surveying the fridge, I noticed that my almond butter supply is on its last legs–PANIC MODE.
I am trying desperately to stick to my “Grocery Challenge” and resist going to the market for an ENTIRE week. Consequently, I decided that it was time to get creative and make my own almond butter.
Having had several rough attempts at making coconut butter (and a very successful last attempt), I was nervous. I worried that it would take forever to grind up. I pulled out my new secret weapon:
This is a food processor that attaches to my emulsion blender. It is one powerful machine!
I poured in the 1 cup of cinnamon brown sugar almonds and added 1/4 cup of raw almonds:
I then started the Almond-Butter blending.
In about 3 minutes, it looked like this:
I love drippy almond butter, so at this point I added 1 tbsp. of melted coconut oil:

I proceeded to promptly drip it all over an apple–DELICIOUS!
If you have not tried making almond butter, you really should! It is super easy, far easier than coconut butter!
