Why settle for ordinary nut butters when you can opt for this extraordinary almond butter? Heart-healthy seeds lend texture and extra nutritional oomph, while maple syrup gives the spread a touch of delicate sweetness.
Yield: 2 cups
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
3 cups raw almonds
5 tablespoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons whole flax seeds
2 tablespoons chia seeds
3 tablespoons hemp seeds
3 tablespoons coconut oil
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Toss almonds with maple syrup, to coat, and spread in an even layer on lined baking sheet.
