Homemade Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter

I was super excited to try this Homemade Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter, thanks to Eating Bird Food I have found another way to enjoy nut butters. I really have a nut addiction. I dont think a day goes by that I am not scooping out a nut butter with spoon!! It almost never makes it to bread!Haha!

Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter

Ingredients
§                    2 cups raw almonds
§                    1/4 cup raisins
§                    1 tsp cinnamon
§                    seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)

Preparation
1.                Pre-heat oven to 350°, spread almonds on a 9X13 baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes or so.
2.                Place roasted almonds in a food processor and process for 10 minutes, occasionally scraping down the sides.
3.                Add remaining ingredients and began processing again.
4.                Process until smooth, occasionally scraping down the sides. About 3-5 more minutes.


The raisins will get chopped up a bit and add a nice sweetness to the almond butter and of course, that sweetness pairs well with the cinnamon and vanilla! I’m warning you now that this combo is amazing and you’ll be trying to stop yourself from eating it by the spoonful, not that that happened to me or anything.
