Almond butter is one of those great pleasures in life. It is somewhat pricey so when I saw a recipe for homemade Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter I knew I had to try it. I am typically a raisin hater but the raisins disappear after processing. Besides they add just a hint of sweetness to the almond butter. This is great on toast, sandwiches, a great dip for apples or stirred into oatmeal. Plus, the recipe only has four ingredients – almonds, cinnamon, raisins and vanilla. You can’t get any easier than that!
Cinnamon Almond Butter
2 cups almonds
¼ cups raisins
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds on a 9x13 baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes or so.
Place roasted almonds in a food processor and process for 10 minutes, occasionally scraping down the sides.
Add remaining ingredients and begin processing again.
Process until smooth, occasionally scraping down the sides. About 3-5 more minutes.
