Turmeric and Ginger Spiced Almond Butter ❤️❤️❤️

Just when I thought my nut butter obsession couldn’t get any bigger this happens . . .

You guys . . .

This right here is like the superhero, golden child of the almond butter world!

Not only is it insanely, and I mean I N S A N E L Y, delicious (think subtly sweet, velvety smooth, deliciously buttery and perfectly spiced with a gentle heart and belly warming hum of cinnamon and ginger) but, it’s also packs a serious and I mean S E R I O U S, nutritional punch thanks to the addition of our tantalizing, super food ingredient, turmeric.

I know, I know what you’re thinking . . . turmeric in almond butter  . . . Em, is that really necessary?!

I say, YES!!!!

Ok maybe it’s not totally necessary but, I guarantee that it is all kinds of delicious, seriously nutritious – one taste and you will be fully on board.

Trust me.

Have I ever steered you wrong?!

I wouldn’t do such a thing. Only the best of the best for my sweet, internet BFF (that’s you 😘 )

I honestly believe that this turmeric and ginger spiced, almond butter that we’re making today really is the best of the best.

I hate to toot my own horn but I really think I may have out done myself with this latest nut butter creation . . . it’s definitely next level! An absolute game changer. (toot, toot)

Plus, did you know that turmeric is rich in antioxidants, it’s a natural anti-inflammatory, it’s great for digestion and heart health, will help stabilize blood sugar, lower your risk of diabetes, improve brain function and boost your immunity!  💛💛💛

Just in case you need an excuses to eat more nut butter . . . all in the name of good health, I got you covered 😘😘😘

For those of you who are concerned that this super hero, super spread may have a weird/funky, taste I assure you the turmeric goes completely undetected.

Apart from the coloring . . .

I’ll admit, it does have an “interesting” glow about it but, personally I kinda dig the 80’s, retro, neon, golden hue. Don’t you?!

Regardless of how you feel about it’s appearance, one taste and you will be head over heels in love with this all natural, anti-inflammatory, super-charged, super-hero, super-spread I just know it!

The addition of cinnamon and ginger adds a magical touch of perfectly spiced sweetness that marries so beautifully with our buttery almonds. It kinds of tastes like Christmas in a cup which is all kinds of awesome if you ask me.

I don’t know what it is, but there is something incredibly comforting about that combination of spices that warms me to the depths of my soul.

Would you just look at those pretty little flecks of vanilla bean and cinnamon 😍😍😍

Ahhhh I just love it so much!!!

Honestly, I don’t know what else to say apart from please, please, puh-lease can you stop what you’re doing and go make it already?!

As always our healthy, homemade almond butter is made with no refined flours or sugars, using just a handful of ingredients that I bet you have on hand already.

No weird additives or unpronounceable ingredients – just almonds, vanilla, a sprinkling of heart warming spices and cheeky pinch of salt is all you need! ❤️❤️❤️

Turmeric and Ginger Spiced Almond Butter
{Vegan, Gluten Free & Paleo Friendly}

Makes approx 1 3/4 cups All natural, quick and easy, creamy, dreamy, velvety smooth, subtly sweet, perfectly spiced, gloriously golden, healthy, homemade, turmeric and ginger spiced almond butter

Ingredients –

2  cup of raw almonds

1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract or 10-12 drops of Vanilla Cream Stevia – I use Sweet Leaf Stevia

1 teaspoon of ground turmeric

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon of ginger

1/2 teaspoon of salt flakes

1/8 teaspoon of ground black pepper – this is important as the chemical compound in the black pepper is what helps and enables the body to absorb all of those incredible nutrients in the turmeric! You can’t taste the pepper, promise.

Method –

1 – Preheat your oven to 175’C (350’F)

2 – Line a large baking sheet with baking/parchment paper (or a non stick silpat mat) then add your almonds making sure they are spread evenly – aka not crowded.

3 – Roast your nuts for 7-10 minutes, until gloriously golden, deliciously fragrant and lightly toasted.

4 – Pour your golden, delicious roasted almonds into the bowl of your food processor or blender, add salt and process until smooth and creamy (or your desired consistency). Initially the almonds would grind down into a powder, give it a minute or two and the oils will extract and it will become deliciously, thick, rich and creamy. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally.

5 – Once you have blended to your desired consistency add the vanilla and remainig spices and process until well combined.

Note – If you prefer a thinner/runnier nut butters feel free to add a drizzle of coconut oil (1 tablespoon at a time) to reach desired consistency.

7 – Store in an airtight container in the fridge. It should keep well for up to 2 weeks – but I highly doubt it will last that long! (← seriously, good luck with that 😉 )

Enjoy xoxo
