Before you start thinking OHHH THIS IS GOING TO STREAMLINE MY MORNING RITURAL, let me tell you that was not my intention.
I like a cup of coffee in my hands. Actually, I think that is eighty-five percent of the reason I drink coffee in the first place.
The hot mug.
The second cup on a particularly cold (or busy) day.
So don’t you go thinking that because I put caffeine in my almond butter I’m going to skip my morning joe. Not this mama.
Oh and also before you start thinking that my toddler really does drink coffee or eat this espresso laced almond butter, rest assured…she does not. (oh can you IMAGINE??!!)
But really, there isn’t much caffeine in that jar down there. Maybe the amount in a single cup of coffee…and unless you plan on consuming the entire batch in one sitting (not totally unreasonable), then it’s almost like no caffeine at all. Just a big rich coffee taste.
Trust me on this one. It’s darn good.
Espresso Almond Butter
- 1 1/2 C roasted almonds (raw would be fine, too)
- 1 t instant powdered espresso
- 1/2 t vanilla
- 1/2 t cinnamon
- a good pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients in your food processor and run on high for about 5 minutes (if your processor isn’t very powerful, it might need more like 10 minutes) until smooth and almond buttery.
