I finished my raw almond butter and I’m having withdrawals 😦
and in an attempt to save some money, I’m refusing to buy a new jar until I move in a couple weeks.
So what’s a girl to do?
Why not try making my own?!?
ya…well that failed miserably. After reading a few how-to’s on making AB after I created a hard almond dough ball I learned that all I needed was so process a little longer and it would have formed the butta. However for prides sake I am going to blame my almonds and the fact that I soaked them and added water as the reason I don’t have drippy delicious AB in my fridge.
So I have a dough ball in my fridge… now what?
Well it wasn’t particularly tasty so I decided to try to turn it into a bar by adding some dates. Back in the food process it went and what came out was oh so good.
The dates made it a lot more spreadable, so I give you
Almond Date Spread
1.5 cups almonds (soaked for an hour)
6-10 dates (depending on how sweet you want it)
dash of cinnamon
– I processed the almonds until they formed into a dough ball, then remove from processor. Process dates until they are paste. Combine both in processor with cinnamon and your done!
And guess what I’m storing it in…
And the perfect breakfast,
What’s your fav nut butter?
