Friday afternoon I enjoyed a 20 mile ride through the valley. It was a gorgeous afternoon for it and this is just one of the many picturesque views along the route. I love where I live, I love being back on my bike and I love the fall air!
Finally, without further ado:
I've been making my own almond butter for months now and quite simply it rocks! Much cheaper and more delicious than store bought, and you can flavor it however you want. I love Kroger's cinnamon roasted almonds so they're always central in my recipe. All you need is a food processor or high quality blender!
1 lb bag cinnamon roasted almonds
1 lb bag cashews
1 tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
Place ingredients in food processor and process for up to 5 minutes until smooth. If possible, drizzle the olive oil while the processor is running. Viola!
Better be prepared to eat some when you make this! It's best warm right after processing :)
