Vanilla Almond Butter Recipe

Makes about 1.5 cups


2 cups unsalted almonds
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and seeds scraped
1/8 teaspoon sea salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread the almonds out on a baking sheet and pop into the oven. Let roast for just over 10 minutes, or until lightly browned (but not burnt). Transfer the almonds to a food processor and begin to process them. Be patient – the almonds will take time to clump together and form a smooth, creamy consistency – about 10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and process for another minute. Store in a glass jar with a sealed lid.
