Let's Cook with <3 Today: Healthy Cinnamon Spread
Prepare a quick and easy cinnamon spread to boost immunity and add flavor!
Ingredients: 2 1/4 cups raw almonds, 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1 tablespoon neutral oil (like safflower or grapeseed), plus more if necessary, 2 tablespoons honey, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more to taste
1.Preheat oven to 325°F and spread almonds out onto a rimmed baking sheet. Toast for 12 to 15 minutes, or until fragrant. Let almonds cool – it’s okay if they’re still a little warm when you grind them, but you don’t want them to be hot.
2.Pour almonds into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade attachment, and process continuously for 2 minutes. The almonds should look dry and mealy at this point. Add the oil and salt and continue processing for another 6 to 9 minutes, stopping to scrape down the bowl as needed.
3.Add the honey and cinnamon, and continue processing for another minute or so. Taste and add more honey, cinnamon, or salt if you’d like. If you prefer your nut butters on the looser side, feel free to add an additional 1 tablespoon of oil, and pulse to combine. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 4 weeks.
