Vanilla Almond Flax Butter

Oh do I have a treat for you today!

A lip smacking, spread over anything, hide from your spouse because it’s just that darn good kinda treat.

It’s loaded with fiber, omega-3s, helps to reduce inflammation, balance your cardiovascular system AND will keep you looking younger longer with it’s high phytonutrient and antioxidant content.

You can dress it up, you can dress it down.

It’s also great on a spoon. Juuust like this…

Ya, I licked that spoon the minute I was done shooting, and I’m darn proud of it too.

I honestly cannot understand why I didn’t like nut butter as a kid/teenager/young adult.

I’d like to think I’m making up for lost time.

Did you like nut butter growing up?

Soft tones of vanilla fill this nut butter with jaw dropping flavor. Ah! I love this stuff.
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 170F and line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicon baking mat.
  2. Spread the almonds out onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes, stirring once half way through.
  3. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  4. Place roasted almonds, ground flax and vanilla extract into the bowl of your food processor and process until drippy, scraping the bowl as needed. This should take between 10-15 minutes.
Notes
You may have to add a couple of tablespoons of almond oil if the nut butter isn’t breaking down easily.

You may be wondering why I decided to roast the almonds at such a ridiculously low temperature.

I swear I didn’t just do it for the fun of it.

By roasting at a lower temperature you’ll avoid harming the fats in your almonds.

To read more about harming fats and the impact it has on our health, check out this post – which also happens to be one of my other favorite nut butters.

Please don’t make me decide which one I love more.

If you’re feeling all crazy but can’t come up with a way to enjoy this nut butter, try dropping a dollop in a bowl with dried currants and little pieces of apple.

I.die.every.time…

And so will you ;)

In a good way, of course.

Have a fabulous Friday! I’m off to work, run at lunch, and meet up with my new chiropractor. What do you have planned for the day?

  1. Hi everyone! I’ve never made this recipe before, or any nut-butter at all! Could you please tell me if it could be made without roasting the nuts/seeds? Since my oven isn’t very techy, I cannot read the temperature and be sure I’m not killing nutrients. Thanks a lot, greetings from Argentina.

  2. I just made this last night and I could cry it is so amazing. I had to use a little flax oil to smooth it out, since I made it in my Ninja blender since I don’t have a food processor, and it made 3 1/2 8-oz jars. It is insane it is so good, and I feel so much better about eating it since I made it right in front of my eyes (thank goodness for Costco 1lb bags of almonds). Thank you SO MUCH, this website is probably the best thing I have ever found on the internet.

  3. Jeanette, what setting do you use on your food processor? I have a Ninja with the options of: blend, crush, or dough. Thank you!
