White Chocolate Cinnamon Almond Butter

I had this devilish idea to combine white chocolate chips and cinnamon with homemade almond butter over the weekend. I say devilish because now I can’t keep my grubby little paws off the stuff.

Every time I walk past the cabinet that houses the sweet butter, out it comes, off pops the lid, and in goes my spoon.

Help!
White Chocolate Cinnamon Almond Butter | www.themessybakerblog.comMaking almond butter—or any type of butter—at home is easy as pie. Well, even easier than pie. Gather a bunch of raw almonds and place them in the bowl of your food processor. Punch the “On” button and let her rip until the almonds turn creamy and buttery. The process takes about 10 minutes. If you’re a visual person (like me), you can visit my Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter post for step-by-step instructions.

Is it healthy? Meh. It’s better than, say, a slice of cake or a fully loaded ice cream sundae. So, yeah, in comparison, it’s healthy.

Now I’m imagining this white chocolate cinnamon almond butter melted and drizzled on top of chocolate ice cream—gah!

If you want to stay on the guilt-freeish path, I highly recommend dipping red, juicy strawberries into this buttah. I discovered this method the other day as I was cleaning my recently purchased strawberries. I dried one off, gave it a dip, and quickly shoved the entire thing in my mouth.

Bliss, you guys. Pure, unadulterated bliss.

This buttah is also good on the following: smooshed between graham crackers, dolloped on banana slices, smeared on toast, swirled into a yogurt parfait, and paired with apple dippers.

Can’t stop. Won’t stop. Don’t wanna stop.

You guys are going to love this butter. It’s sweet, creamy, and perfect for snacking. The hint of cinnamon adds a delicate, sweet warmth.

Now, go forth and make butter!

    Oh no. I love the PB&Co white chocolate peanut butter but I’ve been trying to avoid peanut butter so I haven’t had my fix in a long time. Now I want to immediately go out and buy an expensive, high-powered food processor so I can make this.

      It will be worth every penny :) If you do buy a food processor, I have no doubt that you’ll put it to good use. Thanks for stopping by, Amanda!

    It is dangerous (read: AWESOME) how easy it is to make your own almond butter. Crushing on the white chocolate-cinnamon combo going on here!

      Thanks, Stephanie! Yes, very dangerous, indeed.

    This might be more dangerous than peanut butter. Never thought it could be possible!

      It’s so dangerous, Erin. I love peanut butter, but this really is good. It’s right up there with it. Thanks!

    Now that I have a food processor, you can bet Imma gonna be making my own nut butters! This looks sinfully delicious, yet totally healthy (it’s a nut! How bad can it be? Don’t answer that). I love your addition of white chocolate and cinnamon. I don’t blame you at all for dipping a spoon into that jar every five minutes. And dang, Jennie, your photos are so beautiful. I love the lighting. It’s heavenly!
