This five ingredient Organic Cinnamon Almond Butter using Nature's Garden Organic Raw Almonds is worth pulling out the food processor for! If you don't have a food processor a high powered blender will work too.
It takes a little bit of time and quite a few pulses of the food processor (or blender) for the almonds to turn into almond butter but you will be happy you put in the effort once you try it!
The addition of cinnamon and coconut sugar make this Nature's Garden Almond Butter even more flavorful. Apples are especially delicious dipped in this Almond Butter!
Nature's Garden Organic Raw Almonds are packed with nutrients including Vitamin E, Manganese, and Magnesium. Almonds are also a great source of fiber and protein. If you would like to make this recipe without coconut sugar or cinnamon you can exclude it.
However do not replace the coconut sugar with honey or maple syrup (or any other liquid sweetener or flavoring) because it will change the texture of the almond butter. You only need three bags of Nature's Garden Organic Raw Almonds for this recipe and it almost fills an 8 ounce jar.
The Almond Butter lasts up to one month in the refrigerator although it will probably be gone before then!
Enjoy this Nature's Garden Organic Raw Almond Butter for a light snack, lunch, or even dessert. Spread it on whole grain bread and add a little jelly for a tasty almond butter and jelly sandwich!
