Now you can make your own Homemade Almond Butter With Cinnamon at home. I've taken out the soaking step, added a hint of cinnamon and the result is creamy, delicious and healthy too!
Homemade Almond Butter
While working on a project for a client recently I realized how easy it really is to make your own almond butter. No need to be paying outrageous prices for a small jar of the healthy nut spread.
And best of all, I've taken out the soaking step, added a hint of cinnamon and the result is fabulous!
Almonds roast in the oven for a deep nutty flavor. Cinnamon adds a bit of sweetness and depth of flavor.
Our nut butter tastes delicious on toast, crackers, English muffins, in a shake and even just by the spoonful!

Preheat oven to 350F.
Arrange almonds in single layer on baking sheet.
Bake 15 minutes until lightly toasted; cool completely.
Reserve 1/4 cup almonds.*
Process remaining almonds in food processor until a creamy mixture forms, scraping sides and bottom occasionally. This step will take 8-10 minutes. While the nuts are chopping the sound will be loud but you will actually hear when it turns into a creamy almond butter. There will be a definite change in the sound. Be sure to stop the food processor every so often to avoid overheating and to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl.
Add kosher salt and cinnamon and puree 1 minute until blended.
Add reserved 1/4 cup almonds and pulse until small bits are formed, creating a crunchy almond butter.
Transfer to airtight container. Store in a cool dark place or in the refrigerator.
