Had to try this Christmas inspired recipe for nut butter. Almond butter with gingerbread flavor, how good doesn’t that sound? And YES it ended up delicious!
Gingerbread Almond Butter (1 jar)
- 350g natural almonds
- 2 tablespoons gingerbread spice
- 3 tablespoons water
-> Start with boiling up a pot of water and add the almonds for 1-2 minutes. Pour out the water and take the peel off the almonds. Turn the oven on 200 degrees Celsius. Spread out the almonds on baking paper on a baking tray. Roast them in the oven for about 12 minutes. Take out and let cool down. Add the almonds, the gingerbread spice and the water to a mixer and mix until it becomes a dough. For me it took probably more than 7-8 minutes. Had to stop mixing a few times to take some dough off the edges of the mixer to continue. When it is done and looks like a dough/butter, pour it over to a jar with a lid. I keep mine in the fridge to be sure it stays fresh!
It is also 100% paleo-friendly, which also means free from gluten, dairy and added sugar.
