Sweet & Nutritious Homemade Almond Butter

Almonds are an excellent dietary addition for everyone. They are a source of calcium, great for vegans or those restricting dairy from their diet, they contain healthy fats to boost your brain and metabolism and they are a provide protein for recovery after exercise, also helping you to stay fuller for longer.

I love to make my own almond milk (recipe here) and butter – the taste is so much better and you can adapt the texture to your own preference.. creamy, crunchy! You get my drift.

For this recipe, you will need:

1 bag of unsalted almonds

Cinnamon

Coconut oil

 Adding cinnamon and coconut oil to this recipe not only packs more nutritional benefits. Cinnamon regulates blood sugars and can help boost metabolism, while coconut oil provides even more beneficial fats for healthy hair, skin and nails and can help with fat metabolism. All those benefits aside, they make the butter so deliciously sweet and yummy that you may find yourself just digging into a jar of this stuff with a big spoon.
