Vanilla Maple Almond Sunbutter

Total Time 0:00

Ingredients

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350, Line a baking sheet with 1 cup sunflower seeds and 1 cup raw almonds and roast for 5-7 minutes
  • 2. Add your roasted nuts to your food processor (I use a 10-cup food processor, this is the one I use- It is inexpensive and works great)
  • 3. Start your food processor and blend until nuts become flour-like for 3-5 minutes
  • 4. 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
  • 5. Put the food processor back on and blend for an additional 10 minutes. Stop every few minutes or so to scrape down, add in vanilla and pure maple syrup here- 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)!
  • 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)!
