This stuff is so creamy and good. It reminds me of the candied almonds from the fairs but in almond butter form. I have expensive taste but not a lot of money so I found a way to make my own almond butter and have a cheap alternative to peanut butter that is easy to make. I have found other recipes that are not very flavorful so I made up my own. Enjoy on toast, sandwiches, crackers, fruit, etc. It goes very well with anything you would put peanut butter on.

  • Spread the almonds into a single layer on a baking sheet.

  • Roast the almonds in the preheated oven until dark brown, about 8 minutes. Be careful to not overcook. Allow to cool completely before proceeding.

  • Blend the almonds in a blender until thick and creamy, 8 to 10 minutes. The mixture will be very dry initially and then begin to clump. Scrape the sides of the blender with a rubber spatula as needed to keep the almonds blending. Add the white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt; continue blending until completely smooth. Store in refrigerator.

Someone gave me a bunch of almonds and I was trying to find something to do with them. Overall I liked this recipe. I used honey instead of white sugar and added olive oil (as suggested in a previous review). It wasn't quite creamy enough for me but the flavor is great. I will make this again. Maybe next time I will take out the cinnamon and add a little cocoa powder too it to make it a bit like Nutella. Read More

The original recipe is tasty--the sugar to cinnamon ratio was perfect--but I wouldn't make it again without the following modifications: 1 T olive oil 0.5 teaspoon additional salt. Read More
