Of course, I made 2 batches of almond butter, so that may have had something to do with it. I made Salted Cinnamon Almond Butter for my Dad. I left out the maple since he is not a fan. All you need is 2 cups almonds (I used pre-salted roasted almonds), a teaspoon of cinnamon, and I used a few drops of vanilla stevia. Process for 10 minutes and done! It's super easy and delicious.
2 cups roasted and salted almonds
1 T. Dark Chocolate Cocoa (I used Hershey's Dark)
1 T. brown sugar (or sweetener of choice)
few drops of Vanilla Stevia (or vanilla extract)
1/2 t. cinnamon (optional)
Process for 8-10 minutes. Taste. Add sugar/cocoa/cinnamon if needed (that's the great thing about this, it can easily be adjusted for YOUR taste buds!) and check for desired consistency. Process for a couple minutes longer if needed. Store in refrigerator.
So, if you don't hear from me for a while, I've either been committed or I am buried beneath a mountain of zucchini and search and rescue dogs need to be sent out. Expect zucchini recipes in the near future, and if you have any good ones, feel free to share! Post them on my Facebook page or leave in the comments or email. Does that sound desperate? I'm feelin' a little desperate.
