Meatless Monday: Autumn Spice Almond Butter

Hello Darlings!

This week’s Meatless Monday From A-Z’s ingredient was incredibly open ended: nuts. I happen to love nuts (as ridiculous as that may sound) and add them to everything- breads, salads, whilst roasting protein- seriously everything. However, one of my favorite ways to eat them is by smothering them onto other things, aka toast. So I thought I would share an autumn twist on the traditional almond butter recipe!


- 1 Cup Almonds
- 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- ½ Teaspoon Ground Cloves
- ½ Teaspoon Nutmeg


1.     Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.     Scatter almonds on a cookie sheet and toast in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool.

3.     Place toasted almonds in a food processor and grind until very fine.
4.     In a small bowl mix EVOO and all spices.

5.     Add EVOO mixture to the finely ground almonds and blend until it is a smooth paste!

6.     Enjoy!

You can easily keep this recipe raw by using raw almonds instead of toasted ones, however I prefer the flavor of a toasted almond butter! Its always fun to experiment!
