Three ingredients are all you need to blend up this delicious Maple Vanilla Almond Butter. Not only will this nut butter blow your tastes buds away, but it is vegan-friendly and free from soy and gluten.
I’m a huge fan of nut butter. So much so that I actually don’t usually keep it in the house because I will eat it all. In one sitting. Yea… I’m that kind of fan.
Well, after my coconut butter fail, I decided I had to redeem myself. I remembered back at the Blend Retreat when I got to try all the amazing Justin’s Nut Butter flavors. I fell in love with the Maple Almond Butter and the Vanilla Almond butter, so when redemption time came, I thought, why not combine both of those flavors into one nut butter!
And just like that Maple Vanilla Almond Butter was formed.
I have to say, this stuff is so gosh darn delicious. I mean… maple… vanilla… nut butter. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Nut butter really is the easiest thing to make. You only need three ingredients for this one: roasted almonds, pure maple syrup and pure vanilla extract. Throw it all in a food processor and let the machine do it’s thing. A few minutes later, you’ll have thick and creamy, crazy tasty nut butter to spread on toast, add into a smoothie, mix into oatmeal or devour by the spoonful.
NOM to the max.
- 3 cups dry roasted, unsalted almonds
- 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- optional: 1 tsp salt
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender.
- Process/blend until creamy. (You make need stop every few minutes to scrape the edges.)
- Enjoy as a spread, topping or by the spoonful!
