I made some chocolate almond butter the other day.
Mrs. Fitnessista herself made almond butter in a tiny food processor recently, in a food processor that you have to hold the button down on the entire time, a food processor like mine. Then Ashley did it too. And then Heather made almond butter using cocoa roast almonds, cocoa roast almonds like the ones I have.
I knew it was time to stand by my food processor, finger on the button for-ev-er, and make some almond butter of my very own.
I gathered my last four packets of cocoa roast almonds.
Tossed them in my tiny but effective Cuisinart.
And pushed that button. First I made almond meal.
And with patience and diligence, and stopping and scraping, and more determination than ever before, and I was finally able to produce a lovely chocolate-kissed almond butter.
Albeit a tiny amount. It was incredibly tasty. And it helped make for one happy breakfast.
I intend to push that button some more, maybe even this weekend. I’ve got the homemade nut butter bug. 🙂
