Maple Cinnamon 3 Nut Butter

NUT BUTTER!!! This stuff is addicting.  I made homemade almond butter for the first time a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t believe how easy it was.  You always hear that a handful of almonds is a healthy snack… but who wants to do that?!  A handful of nuts just never seemed to be an adequate snack for me…  but a spoonful of almond butter?!  That’s something I can get on board with. The best part of making it vs buying it is that you know exactly what goes into it.  I usually buy the Trader Joe’s almond butter which is great and says its only almonds and salt, but something about seeing the almonds turn into butter gives you much more peace of mind.  I have also had cashew butter and obviously peanut butter, so I thought… LIGHTBULB!  Let’s combine them all! And why not make it a treat and add some cinnamon and maple syrup??  Now this stuff is dangerous because it becomes very hard to put the spoon down because it is just perfectly sweet and salty.  I got these nuts from Trader Joe’s and they are roasted and slightly salted, I also added a bit of extra salt until it was just right.

      This would be a great gift!! It has always lasted as long as it takes to eat it for me (which isn’t long), but I think it should be good in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 month! Enjoy!

    Would you happen to know how much this recipe yields? I was going to make and I am trying to determine calories by tablespoon like the store bought almond butter. This sounds and looks delicious and anytime we can make it from scratch that would be awesome.
