Here is the official recipe:
1. Roast almonds at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. (I used 2 cups)
2. Throw them into the food processor and mix them up
|It's hard work folks|
It will begin to look like this... kind of powdery. Keep going.
When it looks like this, it's still not done.... keep going.
Add some honey (to your liking) and keep going :)
Let cute kids help out and it will taste sweeter.... it's true.
And just before your mixer blows up or catches fire, it should look something like this.
3. Find a container and put contents inside. I used an old peanut butter container and had Sophia make me a label (got that idea from another blog and thought it was super cute).
And there ya have it! Almond butter!!
But before you can call it a success, you need to give it the ultimate test.... see if your kids approve!
Drum roll please.......................
Three thumbs up!!! I think it's a keeper. I'm sure this will become a staple in our diet in no time. Now I just need to find a place to buy almonds in bulk (preferably organic) can anyone help me out with that?
