Move over peanut butter! There’s a new nutty spread in town, and it might just become your new favorite. Gabriel, The Artful Desperado, has worked his culinary sorcery once again by creating this wholesome yet decadent spread. You’re gonna want to put this stuff on everything… but Gabriel likes to serve it with stewed raspberries.

Everything’s Better With This Almond & Coconut Butter Recipe

Almond and Coconut Butter 

  • 2 ½ cups roasted almonds, unsalted
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • 1 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Method

  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. If it’s too thick for your processor to handle, do it in batches. You can also add about ¼ cup of melted coconut oil to help make it smoother.
  2. Place the butter in a clean glass container with a lid in the fridge. It’ll stay fresh for about 2 weeks.
