I have always wanted to make almond and cashew butter. After my father in laws 90th birthday we came home with a whole can of mixed nuts. So I just had my dd pick out the almonds. Then I brushed off the excess salt. Walla. I added a touch of honey for a bit of sweetness. Now I have another way to get a meatless protein.
I could have gotten an even creamier texture but I don't have the best processor, besides i think it looks more like crunchy.
Nuts can be a bit pricey...plus I'm always making trail mix or some other quick treat.
Well who knew making a nut butter was this easy...The machine does all the work after you pick out
the nuts you want. So I made almond butter this time. Next time I'll make Brazillian...I love those.
Here's the recipe...
1 cup almond butter
a food processor
1 Tbsp. Honey
Place the almonds into the processor
Close it properly
Turn on the machine and let it go until smooth....I took about 20 min.
