Nuts for Homemade Nutty Butter

Yesterday afternoon, I was about 5 minutes away from lying down and taking a nap.  I had woken up that morning at 5 am and had spent nearly three hours in the car that morning traveling for work.

I was then reminded by Terithat I needed to make Pumpkin Spiced Almond Butter (by the lovely Ashley of The Edible Perspective, one of my all-time favorite blogs) immediately.

The nap quickly was put aside and about two seconds later, I was preheating my oven, grabbing almonds from the freezer, and getting maple syrup and molasses all over my shirt.

MAKE.  THIS.  NOW.

I will be eating this with a spoon, thank you.  For Ashley’s full recipe and instructions, click here.

Why are you still reading this?  You should have already left to preheat your oven.  Come on, now! Move it ;)

    I actually had to cut mine down to 1.5 cups of almonds (recipe called for 2), because I didn’t have enough either. It’s worth going out and buying some just for this recipe though! :)

    Yes, yes it is. I’m trying to refrain myself from doing that.

    [...] nothing like discovering how to make a simple pantry staple, such as homemade almond butter, or in this case, nut milk.  Especially if it helps you avoid multiple trips to the grocery store [...]
