No doubt you have read about the lastest processed food recall regarding peanut butter. If you have only been following this recall from the media, you have no idea how big it is. The chances are very strong you are going to be a victim as the list of products included in this recall is over a few pages long. To see the complete list of products, simply do a Google check. Research is your friend.
Processed foods are the bane of this country. Diabetes is pandemic. Obesity is pandemic. Heart disease is at an all-time high. The amount of people with high blood pressure has never been higher. The reason for all of these medical/health problems? Your diet! The culprit? Processed foods. Whose to balme? You! No one is forcing this poison down your gullet.
In a truly natural way, peanut butter is a very good food product. The problem with the store bought poison is not the peanut butter, it's what they put in the peanut butter. There are chemicals used in processed peanut butter they, legally, do not have to put on the label. Now, you can be lazy and not give a damn about your health and continue to buy this crap or you can make a change and make your own peanut butter, or in the case of this recipe, almond butter.
Once you make your own, you'll never go back to the poison. It is so simple and only takes about 10 minutes or so. We make a Cinnamon Almond Butter, two great and healthy food products rolled into one. Once you've made your own almond butter, you can use it just as you would peanut butter. For a truly delicious, healthy and nutritious lunch, you can slather it on some homemade bread and enjoy it with a glass of homemade almond milk, which you can find the recipe here.
No boxes! No cans! No processed poisons! Just as Mother Nature intended it!
Ingredients needed to make Cinnamon Almond Butter:
- 2 cups almonds
- 3 Tbs. cinnamon oil (or vegetable oil)
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 2 Tbs. brown sugar (or raw honey)
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon (optional)
- Place your almonds into a food processor and grind them about 8 minutes. Make sure to scrape down the sides every 2 minutes or so.
- With the machine running, through the feedling tube add the oil, salt, brown sugar and cinnamon, and continue grinding until you have a spreadable mixture.
- Place the almond butter into a jar and keep refridgerated.
Chef's Note: This is pure and untouched by chemicals, so you want to keep it chilled as it can go rancid if left out for too long of a time. Before using it, stir it up.
