Justine’s Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter

My good friend Justine and I have been friends since Kindergarten! We used to play at each others house’s growing up. I thought her house was the best because she had a trampoline, a whole room just for her two parrots, and since she was the youngest of nine, she seemed so independent. We would bike by ourselves into town on her tandem bike, make our own lunch, and pick out movies to watch from her massive collection. At my house, we would do pretend news shows, cooking shows, and talk shows. My name was Taylor Hathoway and I took my shows very seriously! Thinking back now I was probably very bossy to all my play dates, but the videos are hilarious to go back and watch now. In high school, we played soccer together and went on several leadership trips to Colorado and even Africa. So I think it’s safe to say we are lifetime friends. Aren’t those the best kind?

Justine and I at Hippie Day in high school!

Justine and I live just one mile from each other now. She is an excellent baker and cooks extremely healthy in her home. She now eats almost completely grain free. She brought this honey almond butter over to me this summer as a gift when we had a big summer cookout.  Isaac and I ate the whole jar in two days. It goes well on toast, apples,or just straight from a spoon into your mouth. You’ve got to try this! Justine now has a beautiful one year old daughter and I hope one day our girls want to have play dates together, just like we did.

Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter:

One bag (3 cups) Dry Roasted Salted Almonds 50% Less Salt (from Trader Joe’s)

2 Tsp. cinnamon

2 Tbsp. honey (warmed up in the microwave for 12 seconds)

3 simple ingredients make the best almond butter you have ever tasted.

Here are Justine's go to almonds. The reduced salt nuts give the butter the perfect amount of salt without taking over the sweetness from the honey.

Directions:

Use a Vitamix or Food Processor and mix the 3 cups of almonds for 10-15 minutes. If using a Vitamix, set on level 8-9. Stop every few minuted to scrape down the sides with a spatula. This is a loud process, but worth it! You know when the nuts are done when the almond butter is pretty runny and smooth. Pour almond butter into a bowl and add cinnamon. Mix well. Then add the warmed honey. Store in an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator. Makes about 2 (8 oz.) jars of butter.

Serving suggestions: Try with honey crisp apples (Justine’s favorite), toast, or with your finger (my favorite method of enjoyment).

Keep blending or processing until the almonds become a smooth and running consistency. Be patient. It takes 10-15 minutes.

Mix the cinnamon and then the warmed honey into the almond butter.

Mix the cinnamon and then the warmed honey into the almond butter. You are going to start dipping your finger in at this point! Beware because it’s addicting.

Homemade almond butter complete. I feel accomplished!

      Are you putting in a request? I’ll see what I can do 🙂

    Oh my gosh! I love this post. And I am so honored to be featured on your blog. Lifetime friends are the best kind. So fun to think about Maya, Claire and Georgia growing up and playing together. I wonder what kind of crazy adventures they could end up on? Also, wasn’t Taylor Hathoway’s sidekick Mackenzie Washington? 🙂

      I also have to say that at one point we actually had 4 parrots (and 3 dogs!)? Totally crazy

      • katie Reply

        Oh yea, I should I written about all the dogs too!!

      Oh I forgot about Ms. Mackenzie Washington-such good journalism.
