Snickerdoodle Almond Butter – Healthy Gluten-Free Snack Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt

Equipment

  • Baking sheet
  • Food processor
  • Airtight jar for storage

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit (120 degrees Celsius).
  • Roast the almonds: Place the almonds evenly on a baking sheet and roast for about 10 minutes. This will enhance the flavor and make the almond butter smoother.
  • Process the almonds: Transfer the warm almonds to your food processor. Process them until they reach a creamy, drippy almond butter. This will take around 10-15 minutes. You’ll need to scrape down the sides occasionally to ensure an even texture.
  • Add the flavorings: Add coconut sugar, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Pulse the food processor a few more times until fully combined.
  • Taste and adjust: Give your snickerdoodle almond butter a taste. If you’d like more sweetness or spice, adjust the coconut sugar and cinnamon accordingly.
  • Store your almond butter: Transfer your homemade snickerdoodle almond butter to an airtight jar. Store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks or in the refrigerator for longer storage (up to a month).

Tips

  • No food processor? A high-powered blender will work, but it might take longer.
  • Make it chunky: For a little crunch, hold back a few tablespoons of almonds and roughly pulse them into the almond butter at the end.
  • Get creative: Experiment with other spices like nutmeg or cardamom for fun flavor variations.
