You men know I'm a peanut butter lover forever.(Image: https://pickfreshfoods.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Banana-Nut-Pancakes-4.jpg) I mean whoever considered grinding a nut right into a marvelous spread is a FREAKING genius! I actually slather peanut butter about everything around the corner. I dream of it. I also wake up with peanut butter sandwiches close to my bed. Yeah, don't even ask. Know very well what else I'm head over heels deeply in love with? Almond butter! It's ridiculously soft and perfect on muffins, pancakes, and in chickpea blondies After causeing this to be vanilla bean honey almond butter, I simply don't know if I can get back to the basic PB. Almond butter is certainly packed with nutritional benefits too; this consists of fiber, protein, and good-for-you fat. I'm uncertain about you, but I sort of want to dive encounter first into the jar. Anyway if you've by no means made homemade almond butter, now could be the perfect time to start! There are a few simple actions: 1. Roasting the almonds in the oven to draw out the nuttiness 2. Processing the almonds within a food processor (sorry, no blenders). 3. Waiting an extended time/wondering if it's ever going to become anything (it'll!). 4. Adding additional tastes that you would like once the almond butter is creamy. Once your almonds are roasted, it is possible to place them in your meal processor and run it. After a minute or two, the almonds can look like sand (pictured above). It's very vital that you note that you need to use a large food processor with a fairly strong motor as it will be jogging for a while. I would recommend this food processor. After about 10 minutes of running the food processor, the almonds will release their oils and be clumpy. This might take more time to get to this point depending on your food processor. But don't get worried, it will happen! Clumpy means delicious things are approaching. All good stuff take time. After several more minutes, the almond butter will smooth out. You now can be the judge of how creamy you prefer your almond butter. I love my banana bread using almond flour and stevia butter VERY creamy, therefore i usually continue to run my food processor chip until the almonds are blended until an nearly liquid like regularity. That is also when you'd want to add any extra flavorings. I love vanilla bean, a pinch of ocean salt, along with a bit of honey. Nevertheless, you could add in chocolate potato chips, cinnamon, vanilla extract, maple syrup fundamentally anything you can dream up. Then you can place it within a mason jar or in a tubberware and cover; either will work. You don't have to store it within the refrigerator either. Just provide it an instant stir before you use and it'll end up being perfect. All of the picture below needs is sliced up bananas plus some mini chocolates potato chips. Oh and most likely a fresh manicure (excuse my nail polish). BENEFIT FROM THE NUT BUTTER! Prep time: 2 mins Cook time: 30 mins Total time: 32 mins Ingredients 1/8 teaspoon ocean salt Preheat oven to 350 levels F. On large baking sheet spread out almonds and roast in oven for 10-12 minutes until slightly dark brown. Be very careful not to burn the nuts. Transfer to your meal processor and process for 10-15 minutes, scraping down the sides seeing that necessary. At this point the almonds should start to clump collectively. Continue to process before you reach the required consistency.(Image: https://pickfreshfoods.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/banana-nut-bread-5.jpg) I usually procedure until my almond butter is liquid like. If desired add sodium, vanilla bean seed products, and honey and procedure again for another minute. Transfer to tubberware or mason jar and shop at room temperatures or in fridge. If you store at room temp, simply supply the almond butter a stir before you utilize it. I can't believe you're cheating on PB! ðŸ‚ Kidding! I love making my nut butters flavored…with anything from vanilla to bourbon to maple to graham crackers or butterscotch chips. I love your honey/vanilla bean twist. I bet it's so excellent! Like your recipes, by the way ðŸ‚ Question: Has anyone prepared jars of nut butter to keep on pantry shelves or must they continually be refrigerated. I plan to make several batches as family gifts.
