Honey Almond & Coconut Butter!
Hey everyone! :) As you may know, nut butters are my weakness. Spread it on any surface and I will gladly lick it off. Once, I don’t know how, but I had some peanut butter stuck on my elbow and saw it while I was at school and I decided to just lick it off. Gross, but that’s what you call dedication… right?
So my love of coconut and almonds came together in this butter, which I sweetened with the awesome local blueberry blossom honey I got a farmers’ market this past weekend!
The only thing is that this takes FOREVER to make, so don’t do it in the morning because the noise will piss everybody off :D
- 2 cups of almonds
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut
- 1 tablespoon honey
Toast the almonds in a 400F oven for a few minutes until they’re aromatic, while you toast the coconut flakes in a dry skillet until golden brown. Throw everything in the food processor and this is what takes FOREVER. After about 5 minutes, everything should be clumpy and stuck to the wall, so you’ll have to continuously scrape down the walls and then process, and repeat! After about 15 minutes, you’ll have a wonderful and yummy spread for your apples, celery, or bread! :)
