I’m officially home in London! I’m missing my friends at university already, but cooking-wise, I’m incredibly happy to be at home; an oven that works, a cupboard filled with random ingredients and a food processor means that I can experiment whenever the mood strikes me, and as today I noticed that my mum had bought a kilo bag of almonds, I felt compelled to make my very own home-made almond butter! This excited the foodie in me no end. I love nut butter, and almond butter’s so much better for you than peanut. This one just so happens to be sweet, delectable, raw vegan, gluten-free and relatively healthy :)
What a way to spend a morning!
400g of almonds
A teeny spoonful of agave nectar
A pinch of allspice or cinnamon
- Put in a food processor and blend the hell out of it for about 15 minutes, stopping to scrape down the sides every so often.
- Serve on toast, in porridge, in a smoothie, topping a fruit salad… Or just on a spoon, on its own.
