Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter

Almond butter is one of those great pleasures in life. It is somewhat pricey at the store, so when I saw Brittany’s recipe for homemade Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter on Tasty Kitchen I knew I had to try it. I love all things cinnamon and raisin. Plus, the recipe only has four ingredients-almonds, cinnamon, raisins, and vanilla. You can’t get any easier than that!

First, you roast the almonds for about 20 minutes in the oven to bring out the flavor. Next, you put all of the ingredients in the food processor and process until smooth. That is it! The outcome is creamy, sweet, cinnamon kissed almond butter. If you are a raisin hater, don’t shy away from this recipe. The raisins disappear after processing and just add a hint of sweetness to the almond butter. If you are a nut butter fan, try making this Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter at home. It is great on toast, sandwiches, a great dip for apples, or stirred into oatmeal. For the recipe and step-by-step photos visit Tasty Kitchen.

Thanks everyone for your congratulations on our feature in Where Women Cook Magazine. We hope you enjoy the article. Have a great Father’s Day weekend!

    drooool. I love all nut butter, but I think AB is my favorite. I bet the raisin does amazing things. I’ve added it to walnut butter before- so good

    Almond butter is expensive – great idea making your own, and cinnamon raisins sounds really good!

    My son is deathly allergic to peanuts, so I’m so excited to have found your recipe for almond butter. No more buying the expensive stuff- thanks!!!

    Umm yes please! My dad’s all-time favorite thing is homemade cinnamon raisin bread, but this will last him so much longer. I’m totally making it for Father’s Day

    I’m a HUGE almond butter lover also…but not so much a fan of the hefty price. Why haven’t I thought to make my own before…DOH. Love this flavor combo.

    I agree, cinnamon raisin just about anything tastes great :)

    I am a HUGE fan of nut butter! I’m almost done with my jar of delicious cinnamon raisin peanut butter, so this is perfect timing!

    Mine did not get creamy like bought peanut butter. It is dry. What did I do?

    • Two Peas replied: — June 19th, 2011 @ 10:29 am

      I processed it for a long time to get creamy. If you need to add a splash of canola oil you can, but ours got creamy on it’s own.

    OOoohhhh, almond butter, AND with cinnamon and raisins??!! YUM!
    Funny how it’s never occurred to me to make my own. Now I can!
    I’m so excited…

    My favorite post workout snack in college was a cinnamon raisin bagel topped with peanut butter, so I know I would love this – yum!

    I really need to make my own nut butters more often. I bet this would be awesome with peanuts too!

    Flavored nut butters are SO delicious!

    Cinnamon raisin is such a great combination. I used to buy a cinnamon raisin peanut butter, but I’m a fan of almond butter as well so I will have to try this out.

    This is fabulous, absolutely a keeper.. thank you!
    I had to add a little bit of oil because while it was not grainy at all, it was not spreadable. It was like wet sand. Do you think roasting the almonds a little more might help with releasing the oil or should I have processed it longer. Seriously, my Cuisinart was starting to smoke.. not good.

    • Two Peas replied: — June 21st, 2011 @ 9:05 am

      I didn’t have a problem, but feel free to add a little bit of oil if you need to. You don’t want your food processor to smoke:)

    Oooo…that looks good enough to just eat it out of the bowl! I love that you roasted the almonds first…I love to roast or toast nuts when I use them. I really does bring out the flavor and makes everything even more tasty!

    I only wish my almond butter turned out the same, http://athriftyfoodie.wordpress.com/2011/06/23/almond-butter-modified/,
    it still tasted delicious but yours looks divine!
