Fig & Cinnamon Almond Nut Butter
What you see above is one of greatest achievements fig cinnamon almond butter, papa would be proud. can’t wait to tell him with that university degree under my belt I can create such a beautiful and delicious bowl of porridge, ha! In all seriousness cook the fig cinnamon almond butter with the oatmeal and will also be able to discover the joys it brings!
I undeniably love making my own nut butters because I can control what ingredients I use. Many store-bought brands of nut butter contain excessive amounts of oils and sugars. It’s super easy- you can walk away and let the food processor do its job. I have a Phillips Food Processor and its works like a dream.
I wanted this latest concoction of mine to taste and feel just like seasonal pie, so I figured it needed to have a whole bunch of lovely almonds, sweet dried fig in it and cinnamon in it.
I find nut butters need to rest for at least 24 hours after you make them to get their true flavour and consistency. Yeah, I know. Easier said than done but trust me. It’s worth it.
After letting the nut butter rest for a bit the texture becomes much firmer, yet still highly pliable, and the fig cinnamon almond butter flavours have had time to mingle and make friends with one another, letting their inhibitions aside and their true personality shine (just like a bit booze up!)
I say now you can dig in and enjoy the absolute real nature of this dessert-like nut butter. Cinnamon & Fig must lay the foundations for many desserts because that what this tastes like to me!
Just look at that texture. Don’t tell me you wouldn’t want a bite?
Oh, I’m drooling just looking at it. I only want to run to the pantry and have a spoonful or two, but this jar of fig cinnamon almond butter has now been stored away, way in the back of my cupboards.
