{Honey Roasted Almond Butter}

I am addicted to almond butter, I bet I probably go through at least a jar of almond butter a week!  And I am being completely serious!  I eat almond butter with apples, on warm thick slices of banana bread, and even straight out of the jar with a spoon.  Yes, I am obsessed!  

Trader Joe's makes the best raw almond butter, which is by far my favorite.  However I sometimes have the hardest time finding it!  That is why I decided to take matters into my own hand, and make my own delicious almond butter!  It is ridiculously easy to make your own almond butter, or any nut butter for that matter at home.   You just need a few key ingredients, a good quality blender or food processor and a little bit of time!  I used delicious honey roasted almonds to give a subtle sweetness to my almond butter, and it is delicious!  Serve it on toast for breakfast or use on sliced apples for a complete snack!

8 oz. honey roasted silvered almonds (Trader Joe's) 
1/2 Tablespoon Honey 
1/4 Cup + 2 Tablespoons Water 
1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil 

1- Place almonds in a food processor and pulse until well ground. 
2- Add in honey, coconut oil and one tablespoon of water.  Pulse again.  Continue adding water 1 tablespoon at a time and pulsing with food processor until almond butter reaches your desired consistency.  I used about a 1/4 cup  + 1 Tablespoon water.  My almond butter turned out a little thicker then store bought, add more water if you want a thinner consistency!
