Maple Almond Butter Recipe

Maple-Almond-Butter-Final

Why did it take me this long to make homemade maple almond butter?!  It’s so much better than store bought for so many reasons:

Easy. Healthy. Customisable. Fast.

 

  1. It’s easy. This is SO easy and perfect for those people, who like me, are feeling lazy, but want something homemade.
  2. It’s healthier. Do you really know what’s in our favorite store bought peanut butter? Making homemade almond butter allows you do know exactly what you’re putting in your body!
  3. You can customise it to be whatever flavour you little ♡ desires. Not feeling my maple almond butter? Try using a different kind of nut, like peanuts or try playing around with different flavours and spices like honey or nutmeg! The possibilities truly are endless.
  4. It’s fast. After you roast your almonds, which takes 0 energy, it literally takes 5 minutes to come together.
