Sometimes you don’t have the time or the energy for the whole shebang — and sometimes a bowl of cereal for dinner just sounds really, really good. I believe wholeheartedly in those times. (And in cereal for dinner, for that matter…) But when the cereal isn’t quite cutting it, this is one of the most common snacks we break out. Crusty bread, sliced apples, and a little bit of almond butter go a long way to satisfy a busy appetite — and I think they might be even just a little bit healthy too. Especially if the almond butter is homemade, a process that’s a whole lot easier than you might think…
2 cups almonds
1 tsp honey (optional)
Dash of salt (optional)
Process 2 cups almonds in a food processor until they reach the right consistency (scrape down the sides as needed), then add teaspoon of honey and a dash of salt to taste if you like. Process a few seconds more, and that’s it!
Note: The almonds will go through a few stages, from powder to grit and finally to a nice creamy consistency. If they’re not as creamy as you’d like, just keep processing (about 10-15 minutes) they’ll get there.
