Gingerbread Nut Butter

Happy Monday! This week is a nice short one, and I am super excited to wrap things up and head to New York to spend some time with my family and friends for the holidays!

I want to wish each and every one of you a happy, happy holiday and a happy New Year filled with everything you want– and more! I am grateful everyday that you continue to come back, make recipes, and communicate with me regularly. Thank YOU for being here!

The last part of my holiday gift baskets that I’ve been making are something homemade using my printable labels! I made this Gingerbread Nut Butter for a few of the baskets and I have no words aside from, WOW! I love the addition of the gingerbread flavors infused into this creamy nut butter. It’s perfection- and the perfect edible holiday gift for you or your family/friends!Gingerbread Nut Butter Gingerbread Nut ButterGingerbread Nut Butter

Gingerbread Nut Butter

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup cashews or sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • Dash sea salt (about 1/8 tsp)

Directions

  • Place nuts into your food processor (I use a 10-cup food processor, this is the one I use- It is inexpensive and works great)
  • Start your food processor and blend until nuts become flour-like for 3-5 minutes
  • Now it's time to be patient, add in your coconut oil, put your food processor on, and let it do the work. After another 8-10 minutes or so, scrape down the sides
  • Put the food processor back on and blend for an additional 10 minutes. Stop every few minutes or so to scrape down, add in cinnamon ginger, cloves, nutmeg, coconut sugar, and molasses- at this time it should be just about almond butter consistency- blend until fully smooth and creamy (just when you think it'll never happen, it does, so be patient)!
  • Taste and adjust flavors as desired (I add a drop more cinnamon to the top)
  • Recipe Notes

  • -The process should take about 20-25 minutes. If you use a different size food processor you'll need to adjust the amount of nuts you use, and the time as it will vary.
  • -I don't recommend using a food processor smaller than 10-cups (I've broken one before)!
