You guys. Food processors are life-changing. You may know this story already, but I used to have a dinky little faux food processor. It was a bonus attachment to my immersion blender, and it was realistically only good for processing small amounts of leafy vegetables and the occasional avocado – for this avocado cream sauce. If I ever needed to make frozen banana “ice cream” or nut butter, all hope was lost. AKA smokey-smelling kitchen appliances, which is no bueno.

Even if you’re not ready to admit it, the holiday season is pretty much upon us. Never mind that Michael’s craft store is already playing Christmas music. Over here in the HTF household, our Christmas cards are already in (I may or may not have noted them already), I’m starting to put together Christmas lists, and even created a group Pinterest board for Gift Ideas/Guides. If you are a foodie or know of someone who needs a legit food processor, go ahead and put this one on your list (not an affiliate link, just sharing an awesome product!).

ANYWAY. When we finally got a REAL food processor as one of our wedding gifts, I’ve since stowed away the other one. And what does one make with a real food processor? Homemade nut butter, of course!

I can’t imagine many recipes that are easier to prepare than this Cinnamon Espresso Almond Butter. In a NUT shell: pour ingredients into the food processor, turn the machine on. Sit back, relax, and smell the magic that happens right before your eyes. And maybe stop and stir every once in a while…

While we wait for this batch of Cinnamon Espresso Almond Butter to mix, can we get back to the goodness of the holiday season? I’m getting super excited for the cozy and festive home décor, quality time spent with friends and family, and all-around holiday cheer. And shopping. Yes, as a society we can be a little too focused on the gift-giving. But I love thinking of creative ways I can share the love with friends and family! Etsy items are catching my eye this season, and I think a bulk of my gifts will be from local artists and artisans in the U.S.

Alright, let’s see how our nut butter is doing…

In about fifteen or twenty minutes, your homemade Cinnamon Espresso Almond Butter will be ready to go. Give it a stir, and you’ll see just how smooth and rich this nut butter is! Not to mention the phenomenal smell that will be drifting throughout the kitchen – cinnamon, espresso…ahh.

Homemade is the Best-made

It’s no joke that homemade foods are, in general, BETTER for us. We can control the amounts of added sugar, modify ingredients to fit our dietary needs, and…make as much as we want. Once you try this Cinnamon Espresso Almond Butter, chances are you’ll want to head back to the kitchen and make a larger batch.

Whether you save this nut butter goodness in a mason jar at home for toasts and smoothies (or spoons), or decide to gift it for friends and family, it’ll be a palette pleaser!

    That looks so amazingly good — I’ve never made a nut butter at home but it seems pretty easy after reading your recipe, plus I like the idea of being able to add in (and omit) whatever I feel like 🙂

      I waited a long time before starting to make it at home. Never a bad time to start 😉 YES that’s exactly why I enjoy making it at home!

    Food processors are so magical. So is nut nutter. I’m so glad you got one and can experience all the joy. I’m sure I can do a million other things with mine, but it’s usually just full of nuts at all times haha
